Washington, D.C. – Congresswoman Elise Stefanik released the following statement in response to Lt. Governor Kathy Hochul’s press conference.

"Lt. Governor Kathy Hochul's press conference left New Yorkers asking some serious questions:

"Why won't she commit to NOT pardoning disgraced Governor Cuomo?

"Why won't she commit to supporting impeachment hearings to ensure accountability for the brave women victims who came forward and all New Yorkers?

"Why won't she commit to fully cleaning house of all Cuomo's political appointees?

"Will she commit to major ethics reform?

"Will she commit to reversing the dangerous and radical "bail reform" that is causing a crime crisis in our state?

"Will she address her massive conflict of interest given her family’s business interests with the state?

"Most importantly, why won't she agree to release ALL the nursing home data and call for the Department of Justice to restart its investigation into Governor Cuomo's corruption and criminal coverup?

"Failure to address any of these serious issues and questions will make clear to all New Yorkers that we will continue to be ruled by criminally corrupt Democrats in Albany, and that Lt. Governor Hochul is complicit in Cuomo's criminal actions and the coverup.

"The people of New York are watching closely.”
