Washington, D.C. – Congresswoman Elise Stefanik released the following statement following the New York State Assembly’s impeachment report on Andrew Cuomo.
”Today’s impeachment report against Corrupt Cuomo confirms what I have been saying all along. Former Governor Cuomo created a culture of illegal harassment and abuse, corruption and criminal coverup in New York. He lied, illegally covered up, and illegally profited at the taxpayers’ expense while his failed policies led to the deaths of thousands of New York seniors. There must be accountability.
“Former Governor Cuomo and his staff must be prosecuted for using state resources to negotiate a multimillion-dollar book deal illegally at the taxpayers’ expense.
“Former Governor Cuomo also needs to be arrested and prosecuted for his criminal acts covering up the tragic deaths of our most vulnerable seniors in nursing homes.
“I have been calling for accountability from the beginning, but this criminal corrupt behavior has been brushed under the rug years by Democrats and the cesspool of Albany.
“It is time for this disgraceful chapter of New York’s history to be over, and I have been fighting for the truth all along, but Albany Democrats delayed in the release of this report. Additionally, Governor Hochul has failed to support the impeachment efforts of our Criminal Former Governor, rehired many of the same staff, and has been silent on providing accountability for the nursing home crisis. This makes her complicit.
“But the proof is apparent for all New Yorkers to see. Governor Cuomo needs to be arrested and prosecuted for criminal corruption. New Yorkers deserve better.”
