In the middle of calls for impeachment over his handling of the COVID-19 nursing home scandal, Guv Andrew Cuomo (D-N.Y.) is facing calls to resign after accusations of sexual harassment.

On Monday, a 3rd female, Anna Ruch, implicated Cuomo of unwanted advances at a wedding event.

I completely support initiating impeachment proceedings.

The Claim

Despite calls from lawmakers to resign, Cuomo stated Wednesday that he has no plans to step down.

Some critics have actually called out Cuomo for alleged hypocrisy. Congresswoman Nicole Malliotakis (R-N.Y.) tweeted a quote from Cuomo apparently requiring former New York Assemblyman Vito Lopez to resign amid unwanted sexual advances accusations.

” Sexual harassment at the office can not be endured in any shape or kind,” Cuomo’s spokesman, Josh Vlasto, said in an August 2012 statement.

” As I said yesterday, there need to be a zero-tolerance policy when it comes to sexual harassment and we should now send out a clear message that this behavior is not endured,” Cuomo stated in a declaration in May 2013.

Cuomo and his spokespeople made declarations in 2012 and 2013 calling for the immediate resignation of Lopez following the sexual harassment claims versus him.
