Yet another woman came forward accusing New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) of sexual harassment, and is reportedly a current staffer.

The woman, the sixth to accuse Cuomo of inappropriate behavior, is now not being identified. In the news conference, the governor denied ever touching any women "inappropriately".

"All allegations that we learn of directly or indirectly are going promptly to the investigators appointed by the attorney general", his acting counsel says.

According to the Times Union the woman alleges the governor inappropriately touched her late a year ago during an encounter at the governor's mansion where she was working.

The new allegations came at a time when Cuomo is already under investigation over all the other sexual misconduct accusations aimed at him over the past couple of months. The aide subsequently became emotional, and told a female supervisor who approached her about her encounters with the governor.

Bennett's attorney, Debra Katz, said in a statement released Wednesday evening that the latest allegations are "eerily similar" to the former aide's own story.

A former economic development director, Lindsey Boylan, said Cuomo commented on her looks, summoned her to unnecessary meetings, joked that they should play strip poker and once kissed her on the lips at the end of a meeting.

Charlotte Bennett a second former aide to Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo is accusing him of sexual harassment, saying that he asked her questions about her sex life, whether she was monogamous in her relationships and if she had sex with older men. I never made any inappropriate advances. "Because of their enablement, another young woman was left in harm's way". "No one ever told me at the time that I made them feel uncomfortable".

"I just don't see how he could govern effectively when fewer and fewer people believe him", de Blasio said Monday.

The mayor so far has not outright called on Cuomo to resign, but took one step closer to doing just that Tuesday after being asked if he favored state Senate Majority Leader Andrea Stewart-Cousins' demand for Cuomo to step down, or a call from 23 other Democratic state legislators who want to tamp down the resignation rhetoric until a probe overseen by Attorney General Letitia James reaches completion.
