Democratic Socialists Of America To Gov. Cuomo: Resign
Cuomo is getting plenty of heat over these accusations, with calls to resign even coming from his left.
The New York Post reported on Tuesday, “In light of the multiple allegations of sexual harassment by Governor Cuomo, the NYC Chapter of the Democratic Socialists of America is calling for the immediate resignation and impeachment of Governor Andrew Cuomo,” the socialist group said in a statement.
The statement continued, citing the three accusers, “We stand with Charlotte Bennet [sic], Lindsey Boylan, and Anna Ruch, who have spoken out about Governor Cuomo’s harassment.”
“Someone so comfortable with abusing his power should not be in leadership of our state,” the group said. “It is abundantly clear that Cuomo’s endemic pattern of abuse and bullying have disrupted and interfered with democratic processes in our state.”
“The people of New York deserve better” the socialist organization emphasized.

Far-left Working Families Party Wants Cuomo Gone Too
This statement comes mere days after New York’s Ocasio-Cortez said Boylan and Bennett’s accounts were “extremely serious and painful to read,” and called for an independent probe.
Not to be outdone on the far left, the Working Families Party also are calling for Cuomo to resign.
“Andrew Cuomo’s reign of fear, harassment, and intimidation cannot continue,” the group’s statement read. “We were horrified to learn of the Governor’s pattern of sexual harassment.”

“We have been equally disturbed by the Governor’s response: he did not deny any of Charlotte Bennett’s specific allegations, failed to take any personal responsibility for his actions, and instead blamed his victims,” it read.
“We are calling on Governor Cuomo to resign immediately because he is unfit to serve the people of New York,” the statement finished.
It’s interesting to note that the nursing home scandal did not elicit any calls for resignation or impeachment.
Cuomo continues to get heat, left and right. Is he already done and just doesn’t realize it yet?
