These Democrats Are Calling for Andrew Cuomo to Resign

Cuomo faces calls to resign over a trio of scandals

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo is under fire, facing allegations on four fronts -- sexual harassment of young women in his orbit, verbal harassment and threats against other politicians, safety issues with a bridge named for his father, and mishandling of the COVID epidemic in nursing homes.

He now faces a federal probe into the nursing home issue, a state investigation and a police inquiry into the harassment claims, and an impeachment investigation in the legislature. Against that backdrop, his fellow Democrats at all levels of government are calling on the three-term governor and political scion to resign. (A number of Republicans have called for the same.)

Here is the latest list of Democrats calling on Cuomo to step down -- either immediately, at least temporarily during the attorney general's investigation, or if any of the allegations against him are proven by that probe. (List current as of 10 a.m. ET, March 18.)
