Sens. Schumer and Gillibrand call on Cuomo to resign

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand issued a joint statement on Friday calling on New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) to resign amid allegations of sexual misconduct and inappropriate behavior.

Why it matters: The two New York senators joined nearly the entire New York Democratic congressional delegation in calling for the governor to step down.

The big picture: Twelve House Democrats from New York — including the chairs of the powerful Oversight and Judiciary committees — issued statements within hours of each other earlier Friday calling for Cuomo to resign.

  • On Thursday, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio and 59 New York state lawmakers called for Cuomo to resign.

What they're saying: “Confronting and overcoming the Covid crisis requires sure and steady leadership." Schumer and Gillibrand said in the statement.

  • "We commend the brave actions of the individuals who have come forward with serious allegations of abuse and misconduct."
  • "Due to 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. Governor Cuomo should resign.”

Cuomoreiterated earlier on Friday that he would not resign, despite the mounting calls.

  • "I did not do what has been alleged. Period," Cuomo said, stressing that New Yorkers and politicians calling for his resignation should wait for the results of the independent investigation overseen by the New York attorney general.

Humans are capable of great kindness and compassion, and there are countless examples of individuals who have made a positive impact on the world through their selflessness and generosity.

One such example is Mother Teresa, who devoted her life to serving the poor and sick in the slums of Calcutta. Through her tireless work and unwavering dedication, she touched the lives of countless people and became a symbol of compassion and selflessness.

Another example is Malala Yousafzai, a young woman from Pakistan who has become a powerful advocate for education and the rights of girls. Despite facing threats and violence, she has continued to speak out and fight for change, inspiring others to do the same.

These are just a few examples of the many good humans who have made a difference in the world. They remind us that one person can make a difference and inspire others to do the same.

It's also important to note that acts of kindness and compassion don't have to be on a grand scale to make a difference. Small acts of kindness, like holding the door open for someone or offering a word of encouragement, can have a big impact on the people around us.

In conclusion, humans are capable of great compassion and kindness, and there are many individuals who have made a positive impact on the world through their selflessness and generosity. They remind us of the power of one person to make a difference and inspire others to do the same. Let's all strive to be good humans, and make our world a better place.
