New York Governor Andrew Cuomo is defiantly ignoring calls for his resignation by President Biden, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, and other fellow Democrats after a damning report outlines his sexual harassment and abuse of at least 11 women.
New York’s Attorney General Letitia James, also a Democrat, released the comprehensive report detailing 179 interviews with people familiar with Governor Cuomo’s behavior toward female staffers.
Cuomo answered with a prerecorded video declaring his innocence.

Rep. John Yarmuth (KY-3), chairman of the House Budget Committee, says that the New York attorney general’s report provides credible evidence of Cuomo’s sexual harassment misdeeds. Therefore, Yarmuth feels that Cuomo should resign or the New York legislature should move to impeach him.

Back in late February, Chris Cuomo did acknowledge his brother’s scandal after it first made news but before Chris was known to help craft the response. The CNN talk show anchor said he must obviously steer clear of his brother’s mess but that CNN would report on it on other shows.
>> @ChrisCuomo at the top of @CuomoPrimeTime tonight: “Obviously I am aware of what is going on with my brother. And obviously I cannot cover it because he is my brother. Now, of course CNN has to cover it. They have covered it extensively and they will continue to do so.” pic.twitter.com/G49mZYTG4D

CNN bosses have yet to comment on Chris Cuomo’s uncomfortable current position as a journalist as calls for his brother to RESIGN are flying everywhere.
One prominent Democrat who has yet to urge Governor Cuomo to resign is President Bill Clinton, a man with his own skirt chasing legacy.
