A Statement from Senator Rob Ortt

Governor Cuomo’s nonsensical “definition” of harassment today solidifies what my colleagues and I have been saying for months -- he is not fit to lead the state. Regardless, as an attorney, he should be first to know that ignorance of the law is not an excuse.

If this is truly his understanding of the law, then he may be in far more legal trouble than anyone has imagined up to this point.

The more Democratic lawmakers continue to appear alongside him in public, the more they continue to normalize the toxic and egregious behavior by the Governor. It’s time they step up, do their jobs, and hold the Governor accountable.
