BREAKING: Governor Murphy Calls on NY Gov Cuomo to Resign

Governor Phil Murphy has joined the chorus of influential voices demanding the resignation of New York Governor Andrew Cuomo after an investigation found that he harassed 11 women over the course of seven years. 

In a short joint statement, Governor Murphy along with Rhode Island Governor Dan McKee, Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf, and Connecticut Governor Ned Lamont said the investigation’s finding warrants Cuomo’s resignation.

“We are appalled at the findings of the independent investigation by the New York Attorney General. Governor Cuomo should resign from office,” the trio said in the statement.

Numerous others, including President Joe Biden, New York Senators Chuck Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand, and New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio have called on Cuomo to resign.

For his part, Governor Cuomo says he did nothing wrong and that he was simply doing things “meant to convey warmth” to the women who he allegedly harassed.

Cuomo has defiantly said he will not resign as governor, but the rising number of top Democrats calling on him to get out could change that. Even if Cuomo does not resign, he could still lose the governorship, as New York legislators prepare to impeach him for the reported incidents.

    We shall wait and see the allegations which will inevitably surface about Murphey.

    Careful what you wish for.
    Whoever takes over can be worse.

  • Ploni Almoni says:

    Why do they think his successor will be any better?

  • Concerned says:

    What is this doing in the Lakewood scoop. This is not appropriate to publish. Keep it out of frum publishing.

  • Black Libs Natter says:

    Cuomo is a relative moderate compared to all these left-wingers and they are dying to get a real commie in there.

  • Chachom says:

    A word to the wise:

    • LOMED says:

      that is what Haman said to Mordechai but Mordechai responded and told him that this does not always apply

  • lkwder says:

    I call on Phil Murphy to resign

  • L'Kosher Nostra says:

    Cuomo would have been better off in the Mafia. The Mafia has an ethics code about this type of thing. Always be a gentleman. Women are revered and respected. The Mafia hates Communists. If Portland had “protekztia” by the real Mafia, Antifa would cower in fear of their lives and not break a single window or “protest”. Antifa mocks cops to their face but try that with the Mafia.

    as others have commented, this news item is irrelevant to your readership, for many reasons. firstly because of the salacious content. secondly, because there are many ppl out there happy at Cuom’s downfall. But remember, you can’t know who his successor will be and there is no guarantee that he will be better. He could be worse.
