Assemblyman Jake Ashby (R,C,I-Castleton) Renews Call for Impeachment of Gov. Andrew Cuomo Following the Confirmation of Sexual Harassment by the Office of the Attorney General

“Today’s report made very clear that Gov. Cuomo has, multiple times, violated countless laws by sexually harassing and assaulting a staggering number of women, many of whom worked directly for him. I again emphasize the bravery of these women for coming forward to tell the truth – doing so takes tremendous courage and they should be treated with respect and dignity.

“It is our duty as state legislators to immediately bring forth the resolution to impeach Gov. Cuomo, as no one should be empowered to lead our great state who habitually disregards basic decency and fails to respectthe women he encounters. New Yorkers have placed their trust in us to act when situations like this arise and it is well past time for the Legislature to act.

“While these actions alone warrant the impeachment of Gov. Cuomo, it is also important to note that we are still awaiting the results of the investigation into the thousands of New Yorkers who lost their lives as a result of Gov. Cuomo’s unthinkable COVID-19 nursing home directives and the subsequent millions he made writing a book about it. 

“With public trust in government growing weaker by the day, we cannot sit idle while Gov. Cuomo continues to make a mockery of our rule of law and erodes public trust with each second he remains in office. I am calling on Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie and all of my colleagues to do the right thing and swiftly move forward the resolution to impeach Gov. Andrew Cuomo.”
