NY Senate Majority Leader: Cuomo Must Resign…. If One More Woman Comes Forward
“Three strikes you’re out” has undergone a slightly revision in the New York State Senate.
Following a third woman coming forward to accuse Governor Andrew Cuomo of sexual harassment, State Senate Majority Leader Andrew Stewart-Cousins spoke out to call on him to resign…. but only if a fourth woman comes forward.
As the New York Post reported:
State Senate Majority Leader Andrea Stewart-Cousins said Thursday that another woman would have to come forward with allegations of sexual harassment by Gov. Andrew Cuomo before she would call for him to resign.
Stewart-Cousins made the taped remarks on Albany public affairs television program, “Capital Tonight,” which were recorded just hours before CBS News broadcast a wrenching interview with one of Cuomo’s three accusers.
“Any further people coming forward, I think it would be time to resign,” she told Spectrum News’ Susan Arbetter in response to a question about what it would take for her to call for Cuomo’s ouster.
There was no attempt to explain why “four” is the magic number of people alleging sexual harassment required to be taken seriously, as opposed to the truth of their claims.
Accuser Charlotte Bennett’s interview with CBS was released last night. During the interview Bennett said that Cuomo began asking her about her love life on May 15th, and repeated her history as a sexual assault survivor. Bennet said that one June 5 she was called into his office, and Cuomo explained that he’s lonely and looking for a girlfriend. She also shared text messages that she sent to a friend immediately after the encounter that corroborate her statements.
