In light of the findings from New York State Attorney General James’ investigation, the Chemung County Democratic Committee calls on Governor Andrew Cuomo to resign from office. The Attorney General’s investigation makes clear that the Governor’s behavior of sexual harassment was pervasive and far reaching. This behavior is a betrayal of the office of Governor, and a betrayal of the trust the people of New York who sent him to office. We firmly condemn such behavior and deem it intolerable for any public official.
As Democrats, we are committed to securing just and equitable treatment for all people, and we hold our elected officials to highest standards of integrity. Governor Cuomo’s behavior must not be tolerated or condoned. It is evident that he has lost the trust of the public and is unfit to lead the people pf New York.
