Republicans in the state Assembly on Monday drafted a resolution to impeach Gov. Cuomo amid mounting allegations of inappropriate behavior with younger women and the scandal over nursing home deaths from COVID-19.
The resolution will be formally introduced on Tuesday, a spokesman for Assembly Minority Leader Will Barclay (R-Syracuse) said.
During a news conference earlier in the day, Barclay said, “We’re going to introduce this resolution because we believe the time has come.”
“There’s been one bombshell after another,” Barclay said.
“I don’t think I’ve used the term bombshell, especially this weekend, anytime more in my life.”
Barclay’s comments came after two more women — former aides Ana Liss and Karen Hinton — on Saturday brought the number of Cuomo’s accusers to five.
Hinton, the wife of lobbyist and former Cuomo administration official Howard Glaser, claims Cuomo twice pulled her into an “intimate embrace” in 2000, when he was the US housing secretary under then-President Bill Clinton.
