Cohoes' mayor Shawn Morse.

As evidence continues to mount that Brenda Morse, the wife of Cohoes, New York, mayor Shawn Morse, reported last year to police that her husband assaulted her, Governor Andrew Cuomo has called for his resignation.

"The frightening and egregious evidence of domestic violence against Mayor Morse, as documented in recent media reports, cannot be ignored," Cuomo said. "Given the documented evidence presented in these reports, it is clear he cannot continue to serve and must resign. The New York State Police have reopened their investigation based on new reported evidence."

Morse was elected mayor in 2016.
