ALBANY, NY (WRGB) — The wheels of New York State government turn slowly — and so it will be with the State Assembly impeachment investigation into Governor Andrew Cuomo.
Assemblywoman Mary Beth Walsh serves on the Assembly Judiciary Committee that is overseeing the investigation being led by outside counsel. She says the committee is taking things one step at a time, and cautions you shouldn’t expect to hear a lot of details or daily updates.
The focus publicly has been on the ten women who have made accusations of sexual misconduct on the part of the Governor.
Accusers Lindsey Boylan, Charlotte Bennett, Ana Liss and Sherry Vill have all said they will not cooperate with the Assembly investigation, Boylan calls it a sham investigation meant to help Cuomo and says she’ll take a “hard pass”.
Others have raised the same concern. Attorney Leslie Silva, a partner in the Tully Rinckey Law Firm says there is another reason the accusers may prefer to steer clear of the Assembly probe. She says they might prefer to be part of the Attorney General’s investigation, which will be gathering evidence that could potentially be used in civil litigation if any accuser decides to go forward with that.
