The New York State Assembly is proceeding with an impeachment inquiry into Governor Andrew Cuomo, following last week’s report concluding he sexually harassed eleven women.

A number of prominent New York Democrats have called on Cuomo to resign, but he is unlikely to step down. The state assembly is pursuing impeachment and it has the backing of a majority of members.

The Assembly Judiciary Committee met on Monday to discuss the matter. During the press conference after that meeting, Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie said, “The governor’s clearly lost the confidence of the majority members of the New York State Assembly.”
