Cuomo accused of inappropriately touching aide at mansion in Albany

Cuomo continues to deny misconduct claims as sixth accuser comes forward Report: Another woman complains of Gov. Cuomo misconduct

Insider reported that the woman disclosed the incident in an internal complaint to her supervisors, and that complaint had been referred to the New York Attorney General Tish Jame's office, where an investigation into Cuomo's conduct is underway.

The allegation was first leveled against the governor on Tuesday evening-also via the Times Union-and initially contained a less-specific charge that Cuomo inappropriately touched her.

In it, he denied ever touching a woman inappropriately.

Once alone, the source said Cuomo closed the door, then reached under the unnamed aide's shirt and allegedly began to fondle her.

Cuomo claims all allegations are different. The aide subsequently became emotional, and told a female supervisor who approached her about her encounters with the governor.

Another former aide, Ana Liss, said Cuomo kissed her on the hand and cheek and made flirtatious comments that didn't initially bother her, but which she came later to see as patronizing and improper in a work environment.

Bennett's attorney Debra Katz addressed the latest allegations in a statement, calling the details "eerily similar to what Charlotte Bennett has alleged". Due to their enablement, another young woman was left in harm's way.

On Monday, New York Attorney General Letitia James (D) announced that former acting U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York (SDNY) Joon H. Kim and famed sexual harassment attorney Anne L. Clark would oversee an independent investigation of the numerous misconduct claims made against Cuomo.

"As I said yesterday, I have never done anything like this".

Prior to the sexual harassment claims, Cuomo was already under fire and facing calls to resign from Republicans and Democrats alike for allegedly underreporting fatalities in nursing homes a year ago over fears of political fallout for his executive order forcing facilities to take in COVID-19 patients.

It was unclear how much the latest allegation would further erode Cuomo's support in the Legislature.

"I'm not aware of any other claim".

"I don't think he's going to resign", the Democrat said.

Republican Assembly member Mike Lawler on Twitter called Cuomo "a sexual predator" who should be charged.
