Rep. Elise Stefanik is continuing her efforts in taking down Gov. Andrew Cuomo after the recent independent investigation found him clearly violating his own sexual harassment policy.
Elise has been a leading voice not only for the recent actions of the governor, but also throughout the past year, with Gov. Cuomo’s failed nursing home policies that have only brought hardship to many North Country families.
Recently, Gov. Cuomo had been accused of sexual harassment towards female members of his own staff, members of the public and other state employees, including a state trooper, according to a report from state Attorney General Letitia James.
As Elise’s statement said, “No one is above the law and today justice must be served. Gov. Cuomo must resign and be arrested immediately.”
She was also the first lawmaker to call for an independent investigation into the governor’s sexual harassment, abuse and assault.
Elise is now calling for every voter to hold their elected official accountable moving forward in the investigation, as well as calling for the Democratic-led state Assembly to stop “slow walking” the impeachment process. Our congresswoman has been the only representative that continues to fight the disturbing actions of our governor and seek truth for the people of the North Country.
We applaud Elise in her efforts to hold Gov. Cuomo accountable for his actions and bring justice to the victims of his abuse and to New York state.
