Washingtonville, NY — Assemblyman Colin J. Schmitt (R,C,I,LBT,SAM – New Windsor) released the following statement regarding continued efforts to hold Governor Cuomo accountable for any and all crimes committed while in office:
Assemblyman Colin Schmitt stated, “Andrew Cuomo’s resignation does not absolve him of any of the crimes he may have committed while in office. We must continue to seek justice for the victims of his sexual misconduct, the more than 15,000 families impacted by his role and cover up of the nursing home death scandal, the misuse of state resources for personal profit, and any additional crimes and corruption that has yet to be discovered.
“The Assembly Judiciary Impeachment investigation should continue to investigate all alleged crimes and the legislature should use all mechanisms at its disposal to ensure justice through the continuation of said investigation – including barring Cuomo from seeking state elected office ever again. Local, state, and federal prosecutors and agencies must continue all civil and criminal investigations against Andrew Cuomo and he must be held accountable to the fullest extent of the law in every instance.
“New Yorker’s and Andrew Cuomo’s victims deserve the truth and justice. In my official role, in the State Assembly, I will continue to push for the justice that is deserved in the legislature.”
Colin Schmitt is committed to public service. Colin is a member of the U.S. Army National Guard and Assemblyman for the 99th NYS Assembly District which includes the Town of Stony Point in Rockland County and The Towns of Wawayanda, Goshen, Hamptonburgh, Chester, Blooming Grove, New Windsor, Cornwall, Highlands, and Woodbury in Orange County. Colin lives in the Town of New Windsor with his wife Nikki and their beloved adopted Catahoula Quincy!
