Five of six Brooklyn congressional reps call for Cuomo’s resignation


All but one Democratic member of the Brooklyn congressional delegation joined calls for Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s resignation Friday, as sexual harassment allegations continue to stack up against the scandal-scarred governor. 

Congressmembers Carolyn Maloney, Jerrold Nadler, Nydia Velazquez, and Yvette Clarke all released statements on March 12 backing calls for the governor’s resignation, making Rep. Hakeem Jeffries — the second-most powerful Democrat in the House — the borough’s lone holdout.
