Various Brooklyn pols are renewing their calls for Gov. Andrew Cuomo to resign after the release of a damning report by State Attorney General Letitia James that substantiates accusations of sexual harassment against the governor. And some others are making the call for the first time.
James’ report outlined substantiated allegations of sexual harassment by the governor against 11 women, some previously publicized and some not. The report also calls the culture of the governor’s office “toxic” and contributory to the harassment, maintaining that Cuomo and top staffers attempted to professionally retaliate against some of the victims. James said that 179 people were interviewed during the probe, including Cuomo himself, who was grilled for 11 hours by the AG’s counsel, former federal prosecutor Joon Kim and employment attorney Anne Clark.
