Democrats unite against Cuomo
Immediately after the release of the results of the investigation conducted by New York Attorney General Letitia James, Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf, New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy, Connecticut Governor Ned Lamont, and Rhode Island Governor Dan McKee announced the end of support for Cuomo and demanded that he resign.
"We are appalled at the findings of the independent investigation by the New York Attorney General. Governor Cuomo should resign from office," the statement said.
Letitia James stated bluntly that Andrew Cuomo harassed women working for him.
"The independent investigation has concluded that Governor Andrew Cuomo sexually harassed multiple women and in doing so violated federal and state law," she said Tuesday at a press conference. "Specifically, the investigation found that Governor Andrew Cuomo sexually harassed current and former New York State employees by engaging in unwelcome and nonconsensual touching and making numerous offensive comments of a suggestive and sexual nature that created a hostile work environment for women."
Later, President Bident joined the ranks of those dissatisfied with the actions of the Democratic Governor of New York and also expressed his solidarity with Cuomo's resignation.

Immediately after Cuomo's reputation was destroyed, the Governor denied the allegations.
"The facts are much different than what has been portrayed," Cuomo said.
