Washington, D.C. – Congresswoman Elise Stefanik today released the following statement on Governor Cuomo’s last day in office:
“Good riddance to the Worst Governor in America. Under Andrew Cuomo’s failed leadership, New Yorkers suffered corruption scandal after corruption scandal, illegal criminal acts committed on the taxpayers' dime, and unhinged political vengeance and retaliation creating a toxic political culture systemic in Albany.
“If New Yorkers are to believe there is equal justice under the law, there should be no more delay in criminal prosecutions and impeachment proceedings.
“It is a disgrace that Albany Democrats dropped their impeachment investigation against Corrupt Cuomo, and our Lieutenant Governor and soon-to-be Governor has publicly stated she agreed with that action.
“I was the first federal elected official to call for an investigation into the charges of sexual harassment and abuse in December and was the first to call for his arrest following the release of the facts. It has been a long road, and I will not stop advocating for the sake of every New Yorker until justice is served for his victims.
“Justice must be served. Prosecute and arrest Andrew Cuomo and fire all of his political appointees. New Yorkers deserve a clean house and a clean slate."
