De Blasio Joins Dem Reps In Call For Cuomo To Resign

The New York Daily News reports:

Dozens of Gov. Cuomo’s fellow Democrats are defecting in light of the latest allegations of sexual harassment levied against the governor and other swirling scandals. More than 55 Democratic state legislators issued a joint statement Thursday calling on Cuomo to resign as Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie said he will host a meeting later in the day to assess “potential paths forward.”

Mayor de Blasio called the latest claims against Cuomo “disgusting.” “It’s deeply troubling, the specific allegation, the governor called an employee of his, someone who he had power over, called them to a private place and then sexually assaulted her is absolutely unacceptable,” he said Thursday morning. “It is disgusting to me and he can no longer serve as governor. It’s as simple as that.”
