Democrats signal start of impeachment investigation as new Cuomo allegations arise

Democrats in Albany are leading an impeachment inquiry into the allegations of sexual harassment and more against Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

The stage was set late in the week, as lawmakers opened an inquiry into the allegations against Cuomo.

The New York State Assembly, led by Democrats, announced Thursday that it would give the judiciary committee jurisdiction to investigation allegations of misconduct, as well as handling of nursing home deaths.


“The reports of accusations concerning the governor are serious,” the Assembly speaker, Carl E. Heastie said. For Democrats, the biggest trouble seems to be the constant threat of new, or additional allegations.

“I think it’s hard to be having serious conversations about moving the state in a progressive direction when you don’t know when the next shoe is going to drop,” said Liz Krueger, a Democrat, who spoke with the New York Times.

There are questions about whether the move to investigate is a delay tactic, as some Democrats do not want to move forward with impeachment.
