Below is the mayor’s statement:
SYRACUSE MAYOR BEN WALSH STATEMENT ON INVESTIGATION BY
NEW YORK STATE ATTORNEY GENERAL LETITIA JAMES OF ALLEGATIONS OF
SEXUAL HARASSMENT BY GOVERNOR CUOMO
Statement by Syracuse Mayor Ben Walsh:
“The bravery of the eleven women who came forward to participate in this investigation is inspiring. Their statements, including from a member of our own local community, are deeply disturbing. Given their allegations and the findings of the Attorney General after a thorough investigation, the Governor’s ability to lead New York is fundamentally impaired. In the interest of the people of the state, he should resign as Governor.”
