‘He should simply resign’: De Blasio joins chorus calling for Cuomo to depart over scandals


Mayor Bill de Blasio called for Governor Andrew Cuomo to step down from office on Friday, saying that the governor has “lost the faith” of New Yorkers after dueling scandals over sexual harassment allegations and the state’s handling of COVID-19 in nursing homes.

“The governor should do the right thing and recognize that he just can’t do the job any longer. He has lost the faith of his fellow leaders around the state, and I think he’s increasingly losing the faith of the people,” Hizzoner said at a press conference. “He should do something that is decent, after these many indecent revelations. He should simply resign.”
