The process – started in March due to several issues in Cuomo´s administration – was nearing completion and the Assembly will soon consider potential articles of impeachment against Cuomo, Levine wrote to Cuomo´s attorney.

The development comes two days after the release of a report by New York’s attorney general that said Cuomo sexually harassed at least 11 women, including members of his own staff and a state trooper, and that ‘such conduct was part of a pattern of behavior that extended to his interactions with others outside of State government.’

After several months, conclusions showed that, with his behavior, Cuomo also created a hostile working environment.

If approved in the Assembly by simple majority of votes, the state Senate would be in charge of conducting a process to remove Cuomo. If he was found guilty, he would be forced to resign.
