BREAKING: Rep. Stefanik issues new statement calling for Cuomo to resign over sexual harassment allegation

Rep. Elise Stefanik is calling on NY Governor Cuomo to resign amid a sexual harassment allegation from former aide Lindsey Boylan.

Stefanik writes in a new statement “on December 14th, I was one of the first and one of the only elected officials in New York State to call for an investigation into Governor Cuomo’s sexual harassment of Ms. Boylan. It is an inexcusable disgrace that almost every other elected official in New York State quietly brushed this serious and credible allegation under the rug.”

“Sadly, much of the media in the state either ignored this matter or chose to report the sexist character and professional smears of Ms. Boylan by Governor Cuomo’s taxpayer-funded staff,” she continues.

“Sexual harassment and sexual abuse in the workplace is not a political issue, it is about right and wrong,” Stefanik adds. “Governor Cuomo must immediately resign. And any elected official who does not immediately call for his resignation is complicit in allowing a sexual predator to continue leading the great state of New York.”
