New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo sexually harassed multiple women with actions that included kissing, groping, hugging and inappropriate comments, consistent with a long-anticipated report from the state’s attorney General’s Office on Tuesday.
The bombshell finding comes months after the governor was initially accused by three women of harassment or unwanted sexual contact, accusations that have engulfed his already beleaguered administration. While lawmakers on each side of the aisle also as advocacy groups involved an investigation at the time and his resignation, others, including Cuomo himself, minimized the allegations.
The accusations range from unwanted kissing to asking an employee about her sex life to soliciting a former aide to play “strip poker.”
