Following the announcement by New York Attorney General Tish James that an independent investigation had found New York Governor Andrew Cuomo to have sexually harassed multiple women, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington President Noah Bookbinder released the following statement:

“Andrew Cuomo’s tenure as governor has been marked by repeated ethical failures and abuses of power. He has abused his office multiple times for his own personal gain, from using campaign resources to boost his book sales to giving family members and close contacts preferential access to COVID testing. Now an investigation has shown that he created an environment of harassment and retaliation in which his staff was afraid to come forward about abusive conduct. Cuomo must resign.”
