New York’s LGBTQ Lawmakers Echo Calls for Cuomo’s Resignation

Representative Sean Patrick Maloney of the Hudson Valley, who is chair of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, became the highest-ranking LGBTQ elected official in the state to call on the governor to step down when he issued a statement on March 12 — the same day that new allegations surfaced.
