Statement from Senator O'Mara on the findings of NYS Attorney General Letitia James’ investigation of Governor Cuomo

He and his inner circle, who have been complicit in Cuomo’s lies and covering up his unlawful behavior, need to be held accountable to the fullest extent of the law. 

"He and his inner circle, who have been complicit in Cuomo’s lies and covering up his unlawful behavior, need to be held accountable to the fullest extent of the law," said Senator O'Mara.

The Attorney General’s investigation should mark the end of the Cuomo administration and a disgusting chapter in New York State government. 

 

Elmira, N.Y., August 3—State Senator Tom O’Mara (R,C,I-Big Flats), Ranking Member on the Senate Investigations and Government Operations Committee, released the following statement on the findings by New York State Attorney General that Governor Andrew Cuomo has violated state and federal sexual harassment laws:

“The Attorney General’s investigation should mark the end of the Cuomo administration and a disgusting chapter in New York State government.  This thorough, independent investigation makes it clear that Andrew Cuomo is not fit to hold public office.  It leaves him standing, no matter how he will try to lie about it now, without a shred of credibility, honesty, integrity, or trust.  Governor Cuomo needs to resign.  He and his inner circle, who have been complicit in Cuomo’s lies and covering up his unlawful behavior, need to be held accountable to the fullest extent of the law.  As Governor Cuomo continues desperately trying to remain in office, he clearly is living in an alternate universe fabricated upon his sociopathic lying that only he believes to be reality.  If Cuomo were CEO of a public company, he would have been removed long ago for far less egregious conduct. The state Assembly Democrat super-majority must immediately move articles of impeachment on to the Senate.”
