Rep. Nancy Mace has joined the chorus of other voices, on both sides of the political spectrum, who are now calling for New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo to resign after investigation findings say he harassed a number of women sexually and created a hostile work environment.
President Joe Biden recently suggested Cuomo resign as well.
Conducting an interview on “The Chris Salcedo Show, Mace said, “I called for Gov. Cuomo’s resignation  days ago. And the fact that this guy is still in office, making millions of dollars off a pandemic that he botched off his book, and now all of these allegations [are] coming forward, he needs to step aside, be charged with a crime, and resign.”
Cuomo responded to all of this by saying, “I never touched anyone inappropriately or made inappropriate sexual advances. That is just not who I am or who I have ever been.”
And when Biden was later pressed on the subject he said, “I’m not going to flyspeck this. I am sure there were some embraces that were totally innocent.”
New York Attorney General Letitia James on Tuesday held a press conference to discuss the uncoverings of a 168-page probe into Cuomo’s alleged sexual misconduct. The report included interviews from 179 witnesses.
Mace believes that Cuomo’s ties to CNN, which his brother Chris Cuomo is an anchor on, would hurt the network’s credibility.
But CNN already has a credibility issue, Mace says, “with how they cover the [Biden] administration or anything going on in congress.”
“If you have an ‘R’ by your name, good luck, either getting on the network or getting a fair shake. Having been on…CNN multiple times, I can tell you; they go after Republicans, and they don’t want a fair shake. They don’t want to tell both sides of the story from what I can tell, and especially in their coverage, and that’s one of the frustrations with people in mainstream media,” she said.
“Look at what happened last week with Nancy Pelosi telling the Capitol Hill police that you’re going to be arrested, if you don’t wear a mask,” Mace goes on to point out. “You then had mainstream media calling for people to be arrested if they weren’t vaccinated.”
With all of the nursing home controversy and the long list of sexual harassment accusation against him, it seems only logical that Cuomo step down from the governor’s chair. Lots of people on both sides of the aisle want it to happen.
