State lawmakers are launching an impeachment investigation into both harassment allegations against Gov. Andrew Cuomo and his handling of COVID-19 nursing home deaths.
Many of the 213-member Legislature are demanding Cuomo resign - something he’s been refusing to do.
Right now, six women are claiming the governor acted or touched them inappropriately, including one aide who alleges that he groped her.
Cuomo denies the allegations. His office referred the claims to Albany police yesterday.
Cuomo is also being targeted for the way he handled nursing homes during the height of the pandemic.
Questions remain about whether he manipulated or withheld data from the federal government and the state about COVID-19 nursing home fatalities.
One of the lawmakers leading this investigation is Rockland Assemblyman Ken Zebrowski (D - 96th District) "This is the Legislature's formal, constitutional authority to deal with allegations against the governor," says Zebrowski.
State Attorney General Letitia James is overseeing the independent sexual harassment investigation into the governor. She says the Assembly probe will not affect her own findings.
