Andrew Cuomo trembles: The state parliament, controlled by his own party, has launched an indictment against New York’s powerful democratic governor. After a three-hour emergency meeting, the judiciary was given sufficient authority to investigate the allegations against him: sexual harassment and manipulation of data on Kovit’s death in retirement homes. This decision sets the stage for what the New York governor’s first indictment attempt for more than a century.
“The news of the allegations against the governor is serious,” said Dem Carl E., speaker of the House of Representatives. Hesti commented that the investigation would include questioning witnesses, acquiring documents and evaluating evidence.

The announcement came as 59 Democrats in the state parliament — about 40 percent of party members in the House and Senate — signed a document demanding Cumo’s immediate resignation. Hours later, police in the capital, Albany, confirmed that they had received a report from one of their colleagues in New York about one of the allegations of harassment at the governor’s residence, which could escalate into a criminal offense.
So far, six women have come forward to complain about the Dem leader’s abuse or inappropriate behavior. Five are his former collaborators. The governor apologized, but denied the harassment and refused to resign, explaining that he wanted to wait for the end of an independent investigation initiated by the New York Attorney’s Office. But now it may be his own party.
