US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has called on New York Governor Andrew Cuomo to seriously consider whether he can continue to govern effectively after the sexual harassment charges against him.
She said on the program “This Week” on the “ABC” channel: “The ruler must look inside his heart … he loves New York … to see if he can govern effectively.” he have”.
Pelosi repeated her initial statement two weeks ago, that there should be an independent investigation into the “serious and credible” charges against Cuomo, expressing her confidence in New York Attorney General Letitia James, who is leading the investigation into the allegations against him.
She added, “I believe, she called for a speedy investigation, and with all respect in the world for what these women said, this is a very close and dear topic to my heart. There is no tolerance for sexual harassment.”
On the other hand, New York Senators Charles E. Schumer and Kirsten Gillebrand recently called on Cuomo to resign, becoming the newest and most powerful Democrats in the state to join the growing group of politicians who have said publicly that “Cuomo should step down.”
In addition to the allegations of sexual harassment, several former aides said to Komo that he had “created a hostile and toxic work environment for decades through his bullying behavior”, and the Como administration was accused of covering up deaths in nursing homes with the Coronavirus.
