Souther Tier Perspective: Will the Assembly Still Impeach Cuomo?

Some Southern Tier lawmakers are in favor of continuing impeachment proceedings against Gov. Andrew Cuomo despite his announcement Tuesday that he would resign in two weeks. Meanwhile, another is more tepid.

Even with his resignation, the state legislature may pursue impeachment, which could prohibit Cuomo from seeking public office in New York again.

Assemblywoman Donna Lupardo (D-123), speaking at a press conference in Binghamton after Cuomo announced his resignation, would not say whether she thinks the assembly should continue its impeachment investigation to bar Cuomo from running for office in the future.

“I’m going to leave that to the judiciary committee to decide,” Lupardo said.
