CARLE PLACE, NY (AUGUST 3, 2021) - State Senator Anna M. Kaplan (D-North Hills) issued the following statement today following the release of the Attorney General’s report on investigations into the conduct of Governor Cuomo:
Senator Anna M. Kaplan said “As I stated previously, the results of the Attorney General’s investigation should dictate whether or not the Governor continues to serve in a position of honor as the leader of the Empire State, and the stunning conclusions of the investigation, that the Governor engaged in a pattern of unlawful, sex-based harassment, leaves absolutely no room for the Governor to continue to lead our State. The Governor must resign immediately, and if he does not, the legislature must aggressively pursue impeachment.
The experiences of the women detailed in the Attorney General’s report are nothing short of heartbreaking, and I commend each and every one of them for summoning the strength to speak truth to power, even in the face of documented retaliation for doing so. I believe them, I’m grateful for their courage, and they deserve justice.”
