A group of more than 55 Democratic members of the New York State Assembly signed a letter on Thursday calling on New York Gov.

(D) to resign.

The letter cites the six women who have come forward to accuse Cuomo of unwanted sexual advances or groping, as well as the revelation that his administration altered data around COVID-19 nursing home deaths. 

State Attorney General Letitia James (D) is investigating both matters. 

“Attorney General James has made clear that her independent investigation will continue and has already made an excellent choice in those picked to lead the investigation,” the state lawmakers wrote. “We are fully confident in the Attorney General’s ability to investigate this matter thoroughly, and know that no change in state executive leadership will impede or affect her office’s important work.”
