The entire Republican conference in the State Senate is calling on Gov. Andrew Cuomo to resign.

“The Governor’s Office is under a cloud of multiple scandals and ongoing investigations,” according to the joint statement from the senators.

“New Yorkers need a leader to focus on the important work facing this state, but the ability of the Governor to be anything but a distraction is damaged beyond repair. He must resign for the good of all New Yorkers. If the Governor does not resign, the next step is impeachment.”

The statement was signed by the Republican conference that includes: Republican Leader Rob Ortt, Fred Akshar, George Borrello, Phil Boyle, Patrick Gallivan, Joseph Griffo, Pamela Helming, Daphne Jordan, Andrew Lanza, Mike Martucci, Mario Mattera, Thomas O’Mara, Peter Oberacker, Anthony Palumbo, Edward Rath III, Patty Richie, Sue Serino, Daniel Stec, James Tedisco and Alexis Weik.
