New York Democrat Says Party ‘Building Consensus’ on Cuomo Ouster
(Bloomberg) -- New York Assemblyman Ron Kim said fellow Democrats are “building consensus” on an ouster of Governor Andrew Cuomo after three women accused him of inappropriate behavior.
“We don’t have an agenda yet but there are a few of us, we’re pushing for impeachment, and there are more people every day who ask him to step down and resign,” Kim said Tuesday during an interview on Bloomberg Quicktake.
Kim, who has accused Cuomo of bullying him and has called for the third-term governor, to resign, said Cuomo should step down “while we investigate his wrongdoings.”
“I don’t think he deserves the privilege of governing in New York State,” Kim said. “Woman after woman is coming out accusing him of abusive behavior.”
