Joe Biden urges New York governor to step down if charges are upheld

Andrew Cuomo, the governor of New York has been accused of sexual harassment by several women since February.

US President Joe Biden said Tuesday that New York Governor Andrew Cuomo should resign if the sexual harassment charges against him were confirmed.

If the investigation confirms the women’s claims against him, should he resign? “Yes,” replied the tenant of the White House.

“I think he will then probably also be prosecuted,” he added.

Let’s remind that eight women have, since February, denounced the inappropriate gestures and words of Andrew Cuomo, including a former employee who accused him of putting his hand under his blouse in 2020.
