Another ex-aide calls Cuomo's office conduct inappropriate

NEW YORK NY- OCTOBER 24 New York Governor Andrew Cuomo speaks about a suspicious package situation at his office in Midtown Manhattan New York Governor Andrew Cuomo

As a top federal prosecutor in Manhattan, Kim played a role in its investigations of corruption in state government, including a case against one of Cuomo's closest friends and aides.

"Karen Hinton is a known antagonist of the Governor's who is attempting to take advantage of this moment to score cheap points with made up allegations from 21 years ago", Ajemian said. All women have the right to come forward and tell their story - however, it's also the responsibility of the press to consider self-motivation.

"There is no way I resign", Cuomo said Sunday. Almost 50 state lawmakers have pushed for either his resignation or impeachment, with State Senate Majority Leader Andrea Stewart-Cousins saying Sunday that the governor "must resign". "The Governor is direct with employees if their work is sub-par because the people of NY deserve nothing short of excellence".

Charlotte Bennett, a former aide of Andrew Cuomo who recently accused the Governor of sexual harassment in the workplace, revealed to CBS Evening News that he did not complete his sexual harassment training, instead, instructing a staffer to do it for him.

He said that other state lawmakers demanding his resignation or impeachment were politically motivated and that he planned to wait for the conclusion of an investigation by New York Attorney General Letitia James (D) into the claims against Cuomo. Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie stopped short of demanding that Cuomo quit, but said in a statement that "it is time for the Governor to seriously consider whether he can effectively meet the needs of the people of ny".

At least five staffers have resigned from Cuomo's office in recent days, according to the Post.

"Everyday there is another account that is drawing away from the business of government".

"New York is still in the midst of this pandemic and is still facing the societal, health and economic impacts of it", Stewart-Cousins wrote in a statement.

∙ The governor says he does not want to be distracted by the allegations.

"There are some legislators who suggest that I resign because of accusations that are made against me", Cuomo began. "I remain deeply impressed with the talent and dedication of my legal team and will forever be grateful for having the opportunity to serve New Yorkers". "I wasn't elected by politicians".

In a brief phone conversation Sunday prior to the news conference, Cuomo told Stewart-Cousins he wouldn't quit and lawmakers would have to impeach him if they wanted him out of office, according to a person who was briefed by someone on the call. "Among those who did, the majority spoke on the condition of anonymity, because they said they still fear his wrath and his power to destroy careers".

Bennett tweeted the story while Boylan wrote that she is "very proud of Ana Liss" as she called on Cuomo to "resign you disgusting monster".

"These are serious allegations that demand a rigorous and impartial investigation", Kim said.

Liss told the Journal she initially thought of Cuomo's behavior as harmless and never made a formal complaint about it, but it increasingly bothered her and she felt it was patronizing.

'It's not appropriate, really, in any setting, ' she said. She said she recoiled from Cuomo's embrace but he drew her back to his body and held her before she backed away and left.

"Beth Garvey is a true public servant and a brilliant legal mind who has been an integral member of this administration since she joined it", Cuomo said in a statement.
