Mayor De Blasio, 59 Dem Lawmakers Officially Call On Cuomo To Resign

•, by Tyler Durden

The question remains: Will the overwhelming support for the governor's resignation be enough to push Dems to back impeachment?

Dems in the NY state legislature voted last week to strip embattled Gov. Andrew Cuomo of the emergency powers granted to him during the early days of the coronavirus pandemic. Then a few days later, two of the state's most powerful legislative leaders (both Democrats) called on the governor to resign "for the good of the state".

Well, apparently the latest allegations published by the Albany Times-Union last night have inspired dozens more Democrats to follow suit. As Cuomo denies "aggressively groping" a much-younger female staffer whose name hasn't been published, 59 Democrats from the State Assembly and New York Senate have called on the governor to resign via a letter.
