President Biden traveled to New Jersey and New York Tuesday to survey areas heavily damaged by Hurricane Ida and received a hostile welcome throughout his visit in the heavily blue state from residents furious over his handling of the Afghanistan withdrawal.
President Biden called for New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo to resign following the release of a damning report that found that the governor sexually harassed multiple women over a seven-year period, becoming the top Democrat to join the growing list amongst his party in calling on New York’s powerful three-term governor to step aside.
President Biden finally broke his silence to comment on the embattled Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D-NY) multiple allegations of sexual harassment but passed up an opportunity to join other Democrats in calling for the three-term New York governor to resign.
New York’s two Democratic Senators — Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand finally joined the majority of New York Congressional Democrat delegations in calling for embattled Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) to resign over mounting sexual harassment accusations, but failed to mention his other looming scandal — his administration covering up the data of nursing homes COVID death.
Over a dozen of New York Congressional Democrat delegations, including high-profile names Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY-14), Carolyn Maloney (NY-12), and veteran Rep. Jerry Nadler (NY-10) who simultaneously called for Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) to resign amid half-dozen allegations of sexual misconduct in recent weeks, with some noting his other scandal involving his administration handling of COVID in nursing home.
New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) is defiantly rebuffing calls, including those from within his own party for his resignations, telling them there is “no way” he is resigning just based solely on the recent allegations of sexual harassment lodged against him and insisting that he would not be “distracted” as he is focused on getting the state budget approved before April 1.
