New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo appears to be facing "inevitable impeachment" as claims mount against him concerning sexual harassment and over his actions concerning COVID-19 patients in his state's nursing homes, and it is "time for him to resign," Rep. Claudia Tenney said Monday.
"It looks like the governor is trying to cling to his royal position of king of New York while Meghan Markle and (Prince) Harry are trying to leave the royalty," the New York Republican said on Fox Business' "Mornings With Maria. "Too many people have now called for Gov. Cuomo's resignation in the highest levels of government in New York.
"Gov. Cuomo has to face the federal problems that he has where he's lying to the federal government about the documents and the number of deaths," said Tenney. "I called for an investigation to the Department of Justice and through the inspector general just to find out why he did this, what the nursing home policy was about, and was there a money trail in this. There's so many questions that remain unanswered."
Cuomo on Sunday said he will not resign as governor after two more women, for a total of five, came forward to accuse him of sexual harassment.
Meanwhile, the House is set to hold its final vote on the $1.9 trillion COVID-19 package Tuesday, and Tenney blasted it as a "totally partisan" piece of legislation. She also said the money in the last stimulus package, a bipartisan matter under the Trump administration, has not yet been spent.
"This is going to cause inflation," she said. "We are not getting the aid we need but the Democrats are getting a wish list that will hurt our economy in the long run."
Tenney also spoke out against House Resolution 1, which calls for a wide slate of voting regulations, saying that after her own election, she is the "poster child" for election integrity.
"Voter ID is the single most important thing that we can do on a national level to make sure that the right votes and each person is limited to one vote," she said. "That's the American way."
