BEASTMODE: Morgan Ortagus Says Dems Can Do More Than Call on Cuomo To Resign

Former State Department spokeswoman Morgan Ortagus said the Democratic Party should do more than just call on New York governor Andrew Cuomo (D.) to resign after the state's attorney general said he sexually harassed 11 women.

"I think the Democratic Party should do more than just calling for him to resign," Ortagus said on Tuesday night. "As I checked, going into this program, he’s still on ActBlue’s platform. ActBlue is the major fundraising apparatus of most Democrat candidates in the United States."

Ortagus said Democrats should "stop doing fundraisers" and "shame anyone who supports him" if they really want Cuomo to face consequences.

While President Joe Biden, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, and other Democrats have called on Cuomo to resign in light of his sexual harassment accusations, the Washington Free Beacon reported on Tuesday that ActBlue has not cut ties with Cuomo. The organization's inaction defies a precedent it set last August when it removed a Kansas state Democrat who in middle school circulated revenge porn of an ex-girlfriend.
