NEW YORK – Gov. Andrew Cuomo has urged New Yorkers to “wait for the facts." Patience, though, has grown thin in the state legislature, where more than 120 lawmakers have called on the Democrat to quit.
Leaders in the state Assembly on Thursday announced an impeachment investigation, a first step toward potentially removing Cuomo from office.
Cuomo has rebuffed calls to resign and staked his political future on the outcome of an independent investigation by Attorney General Letitia James, who is examining allegations that the governor sexually harassed or inappropriately touched several female aides.
