Gloria Allred Says Gov. Cuomo Committed ‘Potentially Criminal’ Act Against Ninth Woman, Calls Critics of Accusers’ Allegations ‘Insulting’

"The whole thing was so odd and inappropriate and still makes me nervous and afraid because of his power and position", said Sherry Vill, a 55-year-old married mother of three, as she spoke out in an afternoon briefing alongside lawyer Gloria Allred.
Vill alleged Cuomo grabbed her face and forcibly kissed her in front of her home. When she met the governor inside her home, Vill says he forcibly kissed her on each cheek and said "you are lovely". "But instead he went to squeeze between the dog and mine and kiss me on the other cheek in what I felt was a highly sexual manner".
He then inspected the damage with his staff and kissed her cheek again outside her home in a "very aggressive manner", Vill said.
Vill said Cuomo described the kiss "as a cultural norm", which is how he explained the other kissing accusations.
"I felt like I was being manhandled", said Vill, now 55. But unlike other accusers, Vill says it happened in her own home.
"The allegations against the governor connect to a pattern throughout his entire tenure of abusing power", she said. His actions were overtly sexual, highly inappropriate, and disrespectful to me and to my family.
Sherry Vill says Gov. Andrew Cuomo kissed her inappropriately during a visit to her home in 2017 to survey flood damage.
"It was a pleasure to meet you recently", he wrote.
Vill also later received a signed letter from the governor, sent along with two photographs of him shaking her hand inside the home.
According to Vill, days later she was contacted by a member of the governor's staff by voicemail asking if she would like to attend an upcoming event with the governor.
"Only specifically me", she said.
As reported by CBS News, McGrath continued to explain what the environment around him was like, stating "He has a way of making you feel very comfortable around him, nearly like you're his friend..."
Although Cuomo's own party and fellow politicians are telling him to resign, he is refusing to resign.
Spokespersons for Cuomo did not immediately respond to Reuters request for comments.
Andrew Cuomo is facing allegations that he sexually harassed or behaved inappropriately toward women who worked with him or met him elsewhere - now including one he encountered while on official business.
"No one should be surprised that the AG's office is issuing requests for documents and interviewing witnesses, including many who work for the governor". One, who has yet to speak publicly, reportedly said the governor groped her at the Executive Mansion last summer.
Vill said she found Cuomo's behavior flirtatious and inappropriate, his body language made her uncomfortable and the episode embarrassed her in front of her family and neighbors.
Following the press briefing, Allred and Vill will reach out to state Attorney General Letitia James to inform her that Vill is willing to cooperate with an investigation. The state's Assembly has started an impeachment investigation into the allegations.
According to The Hill, Vill spoke at a news conference alongside her Attorney Gloria Allred. She said she tried to pull away from Cuomo when he pulled her back and held her before she managed to escape the room. "This is not easy for Sherry". At a reception, the governor hugged her then put his arm around her lower back and waist as they posed for photo, Liss said. "She's never been involved in a situation like this before".
