New York Democratic Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Jerry Nadler on Friday joined the chorus of Democrats calling for embattled Gov. Andrew Cuomo to resign amid mounting allegations of sexual misconduct.
"This week, the second sexual assault allegation and the sixth harassment allegation was leveled against Governor Cuomo. The fact that this latest report was so recent is alarming, and it raises concerns about the present safety and well-being of the administration’s staff. These allegations have all been consistent and highly-detailed, and there are also credible media reports substantiating their accounts," Ocasio-Cortez and Rep. Jamaal Bowman, D-N.Y., said in a statement.
"Unfortunately, the Governor is not only facing the accusation that he engaged in a pattern of sexual harassment and assault. There is also the extensive report from the Attorney General that found the Cuomo administration hid data on COVID-19 nursing home deaths from both the public and the state legislature," the statement said.
"As members of the New York delegation to the U.S. House of Representatives, we believe these women, we believe the reporting, we believe the Attorney General, and we believe the fifty-five members of the New York State legislature, including the State Senate Majority Leader, who have concluded that Governor Cuomo can no longer effectively lead in the face of so many challenges."
Nadler, meanwhile, called the accusations "credible" and "serious." He said that while Cuomo is guaranteed due process, "the question before us is squarely a political judgment."
"Governor Cuomo has lost the confidence of the people of New York. Governor Cuomo must resign."

When are they going after Joe Biden for fingering that woman against her will?
I hope he fights and makes them impeach him.
Hypocrites, they all wanted us to Move On.org when Slick Willie was wetting his willie in the Oval Office.
Oooh, another Orange Man! This one really is bad!
Well, Monica was a consenting underling.
The immoral minority has spoken.
When you lose Jerry “Shartmen” Nadler is all over
I guess only Kristen Gillibrand is still defending Cuomo. Proving she’s a total airhead.
Never. But you already knew that!!
If Gillibrand condemns KillerCuomo, it’s like attacking her father who worked for the sex cult.
When you’ve lost poopy head and poopy pants, you’ve lost the war...
Yep, it looks like Andy is in deep poopy.
“I hope he fights and makes them impeach him.”
I hope he comes out as gay.
One thing we know for sure, these charges
would could never be brought against accuser Jerry "Poops his pants" Nadler, not in a million years.
Now that would really put them in a bind.
Fight on Cruomo. RE ELECT THE GOVERNOR. BEST MAN FOR NYS.
Unfortunately bad as Cuomo is he’ll be replaced with someone to whom Castro was a hero.
Right. We have to hope he stays in office.
The nursing home deaths will be forgotten if he is quickly gone.
