De Blasio calls on Gov. Cuomo to resign, says “he can no longer serve as governor”

NY Mayor Bill de Blasio called on NY Governor Andrew Cuomo to resign during a press briefing Thursday.

Embattled Cuomo is facing sexual harassment charges from 6 different women including multiple women who were former aides.

“He can no longer serve as governor,” de Blasio said. “The latest report…That the governor called an employee in of his, someone who he had power over, called them to a private place and then sexually assaulted her, is absolutely unacceptable. It is disgusting to me,” he added.

Nearly 60 state legislators in NY have also called for the governor’s resignation.

Cuomo has thus far remained defiant and has publicly said he’s unwilling to resign.
