The President has increased the pressure on NY governor Chris Cuomo by saying he should resign if sexual harassment allegations are proven
In an interview with ABC Biden says, “It takes a lot of courage to come forward so the presumption is it should be taken seriously … And it should be investigated, and that’s what’s underway now.”
Cuomo is facing several allegations of sexual harassment and inappropriate behaviour towards a number of different women.
However, a number of top democrats are already calling for the governor to resign. Almost the entire New York congressional delegation and a majority of Democrats in the state legislature said:
“Due to the multiple, credible sexual harassment and misconduct allegations, it is clear that Governor Cuomo has lost the confidence of his governing partners and the people of New York,” the Democratic senators wrote in a joint statement. “Governor Cuomo should resign.”
