Congressman Brian Higgins provided this statement on Friday:
“Over the past several weeks, we have heard the stories of strong and brave women. I previously issued a statement supporting ongoing, independent investigations into early accusations, but given continuing new accounts, it is clearly time for the governor to resign.
“This a challenging time for New York. There is too much important work to be done. We need to move forward.”
Also on Friday, U.S. Sens. Chuck Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand called on the governor to resign.
