New York governor Andrew Cuomo should resign if an independent investigation confirms allegations of sexual harassment, President Biden said in a Tuesday interview on ABC.

“If the investigation confirms the claims of the women, should [Cuomo] resign?” anchor George Stephanopoulos asked the president.

“Yes,” Biden answered. “I think he’ll probably end up being prosecuted, too.”

Seven women have accused Cuomo of sexual harassment, including an incident in which the governor allegedly groped a staffer under her blouse and another in which he reportedly kissed a former aide on the lips without consent. Cuomo has denied inappropriately touching the women, but apologized for “insensitive” remarks to staffers.
