AOC, Nadler call for Cuomo’s resignation

New York Democratic Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Jerry Nadler released a statement Friday calling for New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo to resign amid ongoing sexual misconduct allegations.

“This week, the second sexual assault allegation and the sixth harassment allegation was leveled against Governor Cuomo. The fact that this latest report was so recent is alarming, and it raises concerns about the present safety and well-being of the administration’s staff. These allegations have all been consistent and highly-detailed, and there are also credible media reports substantiating their accounts,” the statement begins.

The Albany Times Union released a report earlier this week alleging that Cuomo aggressively groped a woman at the Governor’s mansion last year.

Cuomo, however, denied the accusation on Wednesday saying, “I have never done anything like this,” despite six women coming forward with allegations against him.

Additionally, Cuomo is under fire for the reported cover-up of the total nursing home COVID-19 death toll in his state.

The state attorney general announced an investigation into Cuomo’s conduct on Monday.

“Unfortunately, the Governor is not only facing the accusation that he engaged in a pattern of sexual harassment and assault. There is also the extensive report from the Attorney General that found the Cuomo administration hid data on COVID-19 nursing home deaths from both the public and the state legislature,” the statement continued.

“As members of the New York delegation to the U.S. House of Representatives, we believe these women, we believe the reporting, we believe the Attorney General, and we believe the fifty-five members of the New York State legislature, including the State Senate Majority Leader, who have concluded that Governor Cuomo can no longer effectively lead in the face of so many challenges,” the statement concluded.

On Thursday, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, assemblywoman Jessica González-Rojas (D-NY) and over 55 additional New York legislatures also called for the resignation of Cuomo.

“This is what’s best of our state. Governor Cuomo, resign now,” González-Rojas wrote yesterday.

Under the New York Constitution, an impeachment of Cuomo would require a simple majority vote of the 150-member state Assembly, which is currently composed of 106 Democrats, 43 Republicans and one independent.

Run Gen Z founder: Conservatives must win back America’s youth

Published

Run GenZ founder Joe Mitchell joined The Sara Carter Show podcast to discuss how America’s youth have been hijacked by the radical left and what can be done to win them back.

Mitchell, who was the youngest person to be elected to the Iowa House at 21, admitted that many of the people he attended college with considered themselves to be radically progressive socialists. He added that for many of those students the radicalization didn’t occur at home but on campus.  If parents aren’t teaching their children, most of that conversion for the Gen Z generation (known as Zoomers) will then take place on college campuses, and in many cases as far back as elementary school.

“I believe that has happened within our school systems and universities, we’ve seen this progression toward Marxism,” Carter agreed, but noted that like Mitchell, there is a growing movement of young conservative activists as well.

However, it won’t be easy. A recent Morning Consult poll found that only 16% of Gen Z were proud to live in America. It’s an abysmal number, said Mitchell.

Mitchell found that post-college he was able to connect with many young professionals who are a part of  a small but growing Gen Z generation. Moreover, he said groups such as Turning Point USA and CPAC, allow younger conservative adults the ability to make connections and network with similar people. It was part of the reason why he founded Run Gen Z, which is an organization that “empowers and mentors young conservatives to run for office.

In fact, Mitchell , was elected at the age of 21, when he first Iowa’s 84th House
District which is located in the southeast region of the state.

The biggest battle for Mitchell is how radicalization of the youth and young adults, he said.

“Even just trying to get them to the middle of the aisle” is difficult, he told Carter.

The issues confronted by the youth in current American culture is that they have -for the most part – been  radicalized by the left, he said.  There are exceptions to this but it’s a rarity, Mitchell said.  He described  of his good friends is a leftist and easy to have discussions with.

Mitchell was asked by his friend about the bans on CRT and LGBTQ+ in the school systems and said, “Don’t you think its crazy that you guys voted for that?”

Mitchell responded with, “Think about when you were in elementary, when you were in middle and high school. I went to school in a small town with maybe two people of color in a small class of 30.” Mitchell continued to say, “We learned about the terrible things of what we did to folks that were in slavery, the reconstruction era and the Jim Crow era.”

Mitchell goes on to tell his friend that that wasn’t what they were banning in Iowa in regards to CRT they are banning the “radicalized agenda” that CRT has.  Mitchell stated that the curriculum in the USA is “written by people who hate America.”

Sara responded with, “It’s normalizing systemic racism… It driving a wedge between our children, between our family. Its almost as if there is an effort to break down our culture, our nation and our principles.”
