Statement by Assembly Member Rebecca Seawright

As I stated last week following Governor Cuomo’s announcement of his intention to resign, there must be a comprehensive and publicly available report prepared by the Assembly Judiciary Committee detailing its findings, recommendations as well as referrals to appropriate law enforcement agencies. We owe this to the eleven brave women whose stories of gubernatorial misconduct were detailed in the devastating report of the NYS Attorney General. We owe this to the taxpayers of New York who are entitled to restitution of improperly utilized state resources. We owe a full accounting to the people of New York, to help serve as the basis for assuring that new safeguards going forward are subsequently adopted. There are far too many unanswered questions that need addressing in the public record.
