Lots of people are now calling for New York Governor Andrew Cuomo to resign, even the far left mayor of New York City, Bill de Blasio.
Most of the Democrats calling for Cuomo’s ouster are doing so on the basis of his sexual harassment scandal, but there is a much bigger issue and that’s what happened in New York nursing homes.
Thousands of people died because of e policy decision by Cuomo. That’s a much bigger deal.
Politico has details on de Blasio:
De Blasio: Cuomo ‘can no longer serve as governor’
Mayor Bill de Blasio on Thursday joined the call for Gov. Andrew Cuomo to step down in light of the most recent allegations against the embattled governor.
A sixth woman emerged this week accusing Cuomo of sexual misconduct. According to a report in the Times Union, the woman, a staffer whose identity has not been made public, said Cuomo last year called her to the Executive Mansion, and once she was there he reached under her blouse and fondled her.
“The specific allegation that the governor called an employee of his, someone who he had power over, called her to a private place and then sexually assaulted her is absolutely unacceptable. It is disgusting to me,” de Blasio told reporters Thursday during a press conference at City Hall. “He can no longer serve as governor. It’s as simple as that.”
It marks the first time that de Blasio has called for Cuomo to resign over the multiple scandals that have emerged in recent weeks. The governor is also facing accusations of covering up the amount of nursing home deaths in New York.
This is a fair assessment:
When Bill DeBlasio, the worst mayor to ever serve in the United States of America, calls on you to step down – there's no coming back from that.
Cuomo, it's over.

Cuomo needs to resign. He is not going to be able to govern effectively anymore.
