Mayor Bill de Blasio again called on Gov. Andrew Cuomo to step down Tuesday, following the bombshell findings of Attorney General Tish James’ probe, which he called “disqualifying,” and “painful to hear.”

“The summary you just gave represents behavior that is unacceptable, unacceptable to anyone, especially in a public servant,” de Blasio said during a remote press conference, after a Post reporter read the summary of the Attorney General’s report.

“I’ve been very clear about the fact that what we’ve seen is disqualifying,” he added. “It’s very, very troubling and painful to hear that accounting of a powerful person treating people that way.”

The results of James’ investigation — released Tuesday morning during the mayor’s regularly scheduled press briefing — found Cuomo violated federal and state laws by sexually harassing multiple women and retaliated against the victims when they came forward.

While he cautioned that he had not yet read the report, de Blasio said he trusted James’ investigation.

“I definitely have faith in the Attorney General, that she and her team have conducted a thorough, objective investigation,” de Blasio said, “and from what you’re telling me, those are troubling findings.”

The mayor has in the past called on Cuomo to resign after the allegations of sexual misconduct first surfaced.
