Lupardo, Angelino, Akshar: Governor Cuomo Should Resign
State lawmakers who represent Broome County are unanimous in calling for Governor Andrew Cuomo's resignation following the investigation into sexual harassment allegations.
Assemblywoman Donna Lupardo, an Endwell Democrat, issued a statement calling on Cuomo to step down.
Lupardo noted an Assembly impeachment investigation is underway. But she said it is clear from the report released Tuesday by Attorney General Letitia James that the governor "is no longer able to effectively serve and should resign."
Assemblyman Joseph Angelino, a Norwich Republican, issued a statement indicated he believes Cuomo must go: "Now it is time for the Legislature to remove the governor if he does not do the right thing by resigning immediately.”
Senator Fred Akshar, an Endwell Republican, posted a statement on social media: "Based on the findings of the Attorney General’s independent and thorough investigation, it has become abundantly clear that the Governor must resign."
