Statement by Assemblymember Chris Burdick Following the Release of the Attorney General's Report

Assemblymember Chris Burdick issued the following statement regarding the release of the Attorney General's report, finding that Governor Cuomo had sexually harassed multiple women from 2013 through 2020:

"The Attorney General’s report, following a thorough and impartial review by independent investigators of the allegations against Governor Cuomo, determined that he sexually harassed multiple women, violating state and federal laws. These findings are both credible and disturbing. Such behavior would be inappropriate for anyone, but that it was committed by the state's Chief Executive makes it absolutely inexcusable. I commend all those who came forward to share their stories, and I applaud them for their bravery. No one should be subjected to a culture of harassment, toxicity and retaliation. The Governor must resign immediately.

If the Governor refuses to resign, as a member of the Assembly I call on the Assembly Judiciary Committee to immediately introduce articles of impeachment and for the full Assembly to adopt them."
