Seven NYC Congress members call for Cuomo to resign over sex harassment scandal


The calls for Governor Andrew Cuomo to resign grew louder Friday morning with the addition of five prominent voices from New York City’s Congressional delegation.

Bronx/Queens Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and freshman Bronx/Westchester Congressman Jamaal Bowman issued a joint statement on March 12 demanding that Cuomo step down over the recent sexual assault and sexual harassment allegations made against him.

Manhattan/Brooklyn Congressman Jerrold Nadler, chair of the House Judiciary Committee, also called Friday for Cuomo’s resignation. Manhattan/Brooklyn/Queens Congresswomen Carolyn Maloney and Nydia Velázquez, Brooklyn Congresswoman Yvette Clarke, and Queens Congresswoman Grace Meng did the same.
