    Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s top aide Melissa DeRosa was ready to call it quits on the day it was revealed she admitted the state deliberately withheld the complete coronavirus death toll in nursing homes — but the governor "begged her stay," a state lawmaker reportedly claims. "It’s my understanding Melissa wanted to resign February 12 — the day after the scandal broke of her admitting there was an obstruction of justice in her administration," Assemblyman Ron Kim (D-Queens), citing Capitol sources, told WRGB. Kim, a vocal Cuomo critic, was referring to damning details reported exclusively by The Post on Feb. 11, wherein DeRosa privately apologized to Democratic lawmakers for covering up the number of COVID-19 deaths among the state’s nursing home residents.

    New York Governor Andrew Cuomo ‘begged’ his top aide not to resign after it was learned that she admitted his administration intentionally withheld data on COVID-19 nursing home deaths, it has been claimed. Melissa DeRosa, who is secretary to the governor, offered to quit in February after she was recorded in secret audio telling Democrats that Cuomo aides withheld the actual nursing home death toll, according to New York State Assemblyman Ron Kim. ‘It’s my understanding Melissa wanted to resign February 12 - the day after the scandal broke of her admitting there was an obstruction of justice in her administration,’ Kim, the Queens lawmaker and Cuomo critic, told WRGB-TV. In a remarkable confession made during a conference call with state Democrats, obtained by The New York Post on February 11, DeRosa admitted that officials 'froze' in August when former President Donald Trump's Department of Justice asked for the data, before...

    Dozens of people rallied outside of Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s Midtown office Saturday, demanding that he pack up his things and resign over sexual harassment allegations.  “I decided to call for his impeachment because we can no longer be under the grips of this governor who has shown time and time again that he cares little about the people and more about his power,” said Assemblywoman Jessica Gonzalez-Rojas, who was among the roughly 40 people who turned out on 3rd Avenue and East 41st Street. “He needs to go. We must impeach him,” she added. Tiffany Cabán, a Democratic candidate for City Council, called it “an embarrassment and a disgrace that we have to be here today to demand that the most powerful politician in the state is held accountable for his actions.” “The allegations against the governor connect to a pattern throughout his entire tenure of abusing power,” she said....

    New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo is facing calls for his resignation amid scandals, including allegations of sexual harassment from multiple women, but he clearly still has his female supporters, as was evidenced following an event where he announced a local church was going to be a vaccination site. Cuomo addressed the media Monday morning alongside a virtual appearance by Rev. Al Sharpton, encouraging New Yorkers to get vaccinated and urging more houses of worship to open up as coronavirus vaccination sites. On his way out, he received a vote of confidence from a woman waiting outside.

Cuomo’s maneuver echoed the news conference he held in his Manhattan office on Thursday and came in the wake of Friday’s allegations by a current aide, Alyssa McGrath, that he sexually harassed her and tried to silence another, an unidentified aide who’s accused him of groping her in the Executive Mansion late last year. “He told her specifically not to tell me,” McGrath told the New York Times.

    Gov. Cuomo has given millions in campaign cash over the years to a long list of New York lawmakers — and they all face a decision now on whether to give it back. Many of Cuomo’s largest beneficiaries are now calling on him to resign or step aside pending the results of investigations over multiple allegations of sexual harassment and misconduct — but so far none have publicly said they’ll give up money that came in through an accused sex harasser. Cuomo cash was particularly integral to getting state senators elected in 2018 to establish total Democratic control of the chamber and one-party rule in Albany. Two Long Island Democrats, state Sens. Todd Kaminsky and Jim Gaughran, led the pack, each taking $22,000 from Cuomo’s campaign committee over the years. Two other Long Islanders, state Sens. John Brooks and Anna Kaplan, both took $11,000. State Sen. Andrew S. Gounardes,...

    A majority of New York Democrats do not want New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) to resign despite his administration’s mounting scandals, including allegations of sexual harassment and assault, a Quinnipiac University survey released on Thursday found. The survey, taken March 16-17 among 905 registered voters in New York State, found a plurality, or 49 percent, expressing the belief that Cuomo should not resign, compared to 43 percent who believe he should.

    C. Douglas Golden, The Western Journal March 18, 2021 0 Comments In our digital world — where your 280 characters of invective on any issue can be beamed out to the world so long as you’re, at the very least, in range of a cellphone towner — there’s something refreshing about the fact that one of the most analog methods of getting a message across can still get some traction. Yes, as conservatives have been angrily calling for New York Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo to resign for months now — and those calls have been amplified by some Democrats now that Cuomo’s nursing home death toll problem has been joined by numerous credible allegations of sexual misconduct — a plane with a banner trailing behind it drove the point home. The message: “New Yorkers Say Cuomo’s Got to Go!” Here was the plane, which flew by the state Capitol...

The sky turned unfriendly for the governor when the "New Yorkers Say Cuomo’s Got to Go!" banner flew by the Capitol building in downtown Albany after 11 a.m. The female activists said Cuomo must step down after seven women accused him of sexual harassment.

    Allies of New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo circulated an open letter in an attempt to discredit the first woman to accuse him of sexual harassment, according to a report. People tied to Cuomo circulated the letter criticizing Lindsey Boylan, Cuomo's first accuser, days after the allegations emerged, in the hopes of getting former staffers to sign, according to a report by the New York Times. “Weaponizing a claim of sexual harassment for personal political gain or to achieve notoriety cannot be tolerated,” the letter said. “False claims demean the veracity of credible claims.” CUOMO ACCUSER'S ATTORNEY CONDEMNS NEW YORK ASSEMBLY'S CHOICE OF OUTSIDE COUNSEL Cuomo was involved in drafting the letter, which was never released, and it remains unclear how many people were asked to sign the letter, the report added. Jill Basinger, Boylan's attorney, condemned the letter in a statement shared with the New York Times. "Once again, a...
    NEW YORK (WABC) -- Andrew Cuomo responded to President Joe Biden's comments Wednesday regarding the sexual harassment allegations against the New York governor.In an exclusive interview with ABC News' George Stephanopoulos on Tuesday, President Biden said that Cuomo should resign if an investigation confirms claims he committed sexual harassment."The president said there should be a review," Cuomo said. "I agree with him on that, the people of New York agree with him on that, people of New York in the Siena poll said, 50% to 35%, or something like that, that i should not resign. 35% said I should resign. By the way 35% would say i should resign anyway. There has always been 35% against me, on the normal political spectrum.

    If the investigation confirms the women’s claims against him, should he resign? “Yes,” replied the tenant of the White House. “I think he will then probably also be prosecuted,” he added. Eight women have since February denounced Mr. Cuomo’s inappropriate gestures and words, including a former employee who accused him of putting his hand under his blouse in 2020. Denouncing “false” allegations, Andrew Cuomo, 63, ten of whom head the influential New York State, refuses to give in to calls for resignation. He again asked Friday to wait for the results of the investigations opened after these revelations.
    During a portion of an interview with ABC News released on Tuesday, President Joe Biden stated that New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) should resign and would “probably” be prosecuted if the investigation into the sexual misconduct allegations against him confirms the claims. Biden also stated that women who make accusations of sexual misconduct “should be presumed to be telling the truth,” and “there should be an investigation to determine whether what she says is true.” ABC host George Stephanopoulos asked, “If the investigation confirms the claims of the women, should he resign?” Biden responded, “Yes. I think he’d probably end up being prosecuted too.” He added, “A woman should be presumed to be telling the truth, and should not be scapegoated and become victimized by her coming forward, number one. But there should be an investigation to determine whether what she says is true. That’s what’s going on now.”...

Steve Cuozzo absolutely nailed it when he pointed out how misplaced New York politicians’ priorities are when they consider sex harassment more important than mass death (“Push comes to gov,” PostScript, March 14). As terrible as Cuomo’s alleged behavior toward women was, these ladies have lived to tell their stories — unlike the nursing-home victims. Until recently, Cuomo enjoyed dictatorial powers in this state. Those powers were conferred upon him by our esteemed legislators to combat the pandemic. Some 15,000 people died in New York nursing...

    The corporate media are so feckless that, even in left-wing New York, only 35 percent of those polled believe Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D-NY) should resign. This, at least to me, is just more proof of just how badly the establishment media have squandered their credibility and by extension, their ability to affect public opinion. The media jihad against Cuomo has been pretty intense over the last week or so, and the pressure on him to resign just as intense, not only in the media but among some of the top names in the Democrat Party. Last week closed with what looked to me like the final push. Dozens of misconduct allegations surfaced against Cuomo while big names like Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) called for Cuomo to step down. As a longtime media-watcher, I know a coordinated Dem/media assault when I see one, and I can tell you this...
    President Joe Biden on Sunday passed up an opportunity to join other Democrats calling for the resignation of New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, who is under investigation after multiple allegations of sexual harassment. Asked by a reporter if Cuomo should resign, Biden responded, “I think the investigation is underway and we should see what it brings us.” Biden, who made the comments upon returning to the White House from a weekend at his home in Delaware, had not previously spoken publicly about the allegations against Cuomo. However, his comments reflect the wait-and-see position the White House has taken regarding Cuomo’s future.
    The chairman of the New York Democratic Party said that since many leaders have called on Gov. Andrew Cuomo to resign and he has refused to do so, officials should now “focus” on getting government work accomplished. “Now that virtually every Democratic elected official has made their views known, and the Governor has made clear that he has no intention of resigning until the results of the independent investigations into the allegations against him have been completed, it is incumbent upon everyone to focus on getting the work of government done,” Jay Jacobs said in a statement released on Monday. “Over the next two weeks, the state must complete a budget, ramp up its already extensive vaccination program and tend to the many other responsibilities that require the full attention of state government,” he continued. Jacobs highlighted that the allegations leveled against Cuomo are “serious and disturbing and...
    Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D-NY) is facing mounting calls for him to resign for the alleged misreporting of Covid-19 deaths in nursing homes and the accusations of sexual harassment — both Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY), plus many state legislators, have publicly called for him to go — but New York voters haven’t yet completely given up on him. A new poll by Siena College, a private college in the Albany area, showed that 50 percent of New York voters did not think Cuomo should resign immediately, 35 percent said he should, and 15 percent were unsure. The poll was conducted from March 8 through 12 and has a margin of error of +/- 4.1 percent. “It’s a mix of good news and bad news for embattled Governor Cuomo,” politics reporter Dan Merica told CNN Newsroom anchor Briana Keilar, explaining that the 50 percent who didn’t think...

Andrew Cuomo to resign. “Let me first say that like everyone who continues to read stories, and new developments seem to happen every day, we find them troubling,” Psaki said. “The president finds them troubling, hard to read and every woman who steps forward needs to be treated with dignity and respect,” Psaki said.

Each host in turn offered their view, with Sunny Hostin choosing “but what about” for the context of her remarks. Whoopi Goldberg introduced the story at the top of the show, pointing out that a seventh accuser has come forward, and that some Democrats, including most of his fellow New York politicians, have called for his resignation. She then went to each co-host in turn for their commentary, getting to Hostin last. “You know, I just think it’s interesting that we’re talking every week, feels like practically every day, about Cuomo, and asking him to step down and asking him to resign without truly due process, without investigations, which are ongoing, having been held,” Hostin began, setting...

    President Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris are not calling for New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo to resign even as a growing number of New York and national Democrats say it's time for the scandal-ridden governor to step down.  The president and vice president are not even going as far as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and House Democratic Caucus Chair Hakeem Jeffries, D-N.Y. In recent days the two high-ranking House members didn't explicitly say Cuomo should resign but did imply that he should seriously consider it.  This comes as Cuomo's support evaporates among other Democrats, including Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., the highest-ranking New Yorker in Congress, and among traditional allies in the New York state legislature.  President Biden and Vice President Harris, then candidates, arrive to speak during a news conference at Alexis Dupont High School in Wilmington, Del., Wednesday, Aug. 12, 2020.

    Reuters March 15, 2021 0 Comments President Joe Biden declined on Sunday to call on New York Governor Andrew Cuomo to resign over sexual misconduct allegations, saying he wanted to await the outcome of an investigation into the matter. Asked on returning from Delaware if Cuomo, a fellow Democrat, should step down, Biden told reporters: “I think the investigation is under way and we should see what it brings us.” Cuomo faces accusations of sexual harassment and misconduct leveled by at least seven women, including former aides, and has come under pressure from disclosures that his administration withheld the number of nursing home residents killed in the state by COVID-19. On Friday, New York’s two Democratic U.S. senators, Chuck Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand, and most of the state’s congressional delegation, including leading progressive Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, urged Cuomo, now in his third term as governor, to resign. Cuomo, 63,...
    New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio tied Gov. Andrew Cuomo's alleged cover-up of nursing home deaths to campaign contributions, saying on Sunday that hospitals, health systems and other donors were the reason the governor hid the numbers. The mayor also continued to take aim at Cuomo amid a growing sexual harassment scandal, accusing him of being 'in the way' when it comes to saving lives during the fight against the coronavirus and again calling for him to resign. De Blasio has been at the forefront of the crowd calling for Cuomo's resignation in recent weeks, seemingly unafraid of battling a now-weakened frequent adversary.  De Blasio appeared on CBS' Face the Nation, where he was asked about the possibility of Cuomo resigning in the face of controversy. 'I think he'll try to hold out,' De Blasio said to host Margaret Brennan. 'I think he is used to getting things his way...
    President Joe Biden said Sunday he wants to see what comes of an investigation into allegations of sexual harassment against New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo when asked if the Democratic governor should resign. “I think the investigation is underway and we should see what it brings us,” Biden told reporters on the White House South Lawn, explicitly weighing in on the allegations against the governor for the first time. His comments come as most of the New York congressional delegation, including Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, have called for Cuomo to step down. White House press secretary Jen Psaki has previously pointed to New York Attorney General Letitia James’ independent investigation in briefings. White House deputy press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre told MSNBC earlier Sunday that “Every woman that comes forward … they should be heard, they should be listened to and they should be respected.
