Sexual Harassment: Cuomo’s Ex-aide Files Criminal Complaint

Pressure Mounts On Cuomo As Judiciary Meets

Former employee who accused New York Governor, Andrew Cuomo of groping her breast in the Executive Mansion in Albany, has filed a criminal complaint against him.

Gatekeepers News reports that the Albany County Sheriff’s office on Friday said the woman, whose name has not been made public, an official report with a law enforcement agency on Thursday.

The woman was one of at least 11 women who state investigators this week said were sexually harassed by Cuomo.

Earlier this week, Gatekeepers News reported that the New York Attorney General’s office found that the Governor sexually harassed multiple women.

New York Attorney General, Letitia James on Tuesday, during a press conference, said: “The investigation found that Governor Andrew Cuomo sexually harassed current and former New York State employees by engaging in unwelcome and non-consensual touching and making numerous offensive comments of a suggestive and sexual nature that created a hostile work environment for women.

“The independent investigation found that Governor Cuomo sexually harassed multiple women, many of whom were young women, by engaging in unwanted groping, kisses, hugging and by making inappropriate comments.”

James’ report also concluded that Cuomo and his staff retaliated against at least one woman who complained about him by leaking her confidential employment records to the press.

The Attorney General said the governor had broken both federal and state laws forbidding sexual harassment in the workplace but that the investigation she oversaw was a civil one and that she would not be prosecuting.

According to the investigators’ report, the executive assistant narrated how Cuomo called her to the mansion in November 2020, led her into a room, closed the door, slid his hand under her blouse and cupped her breast over her bra.

Cuomo has since been resisting widespread calls to resign, including from U.S. President Joe Biden, and faces impeachment by state lawmakers.

On Friday, lawyers defending Cuomo and his office argued that the investigation was biased from the start.

“There has been no open-minded fact-finding in this case,” said Rita Glavin, a lawyer representing Cuomo said at a news conference.

“The investigation was conducted to support a predetermined narrative.”
