About a dozen protesters gathered outside the NYS Office Building, in downtown Utica, today, to keep the pressure on the NYS Assembly to impeach Governor Cuomo, in the wake of the Attorney General's report that he sexually harassed multiple women.
Barbara Ames, of Deansboro, held a sign saying, "Cuomo need help packing?"
"Absolutely. I'm a farm girl. I've got the trucks and equipment. He can go!"
The protesters, with Mohawk Valley Main Street Patriots and Right Way USA, don't believe the governor is going anywhere on his own.
"We were here, you guys covered us in March, we were here saying the same thing. "He's gonna leave, he's gonna leave, he's gonna leave.' He's still here," said organizer, James Zecca.
Their patriotic music the protesters played was interrupted by frequent honks of support, from downtown traffic.
The protesters had a little something for Assemblywoman Marianne Buttenschon.
"We have right now about 70 signatures that we're gonna bring up to her office and present to her but we've been presenting her every week, mailing her petitions, so she's got well over, I would say by now, about 700 signatures in hand in her office and that's gonna help her," said Zecca.
The founder of The Zogby Poll, John Zogby, believes impeachment proceedings will begin, but that the governor will likely resign before they conclude.
