Sixth person accuses Governor Cuomo of inappropriate conduct

Sixth person accuses Governor Cuomo of inappropriate conduct

Although the woman has not filed a formal complaint herself, fellow staffers reported the incident to a supervisor and the allegations were reported to the governor's office and the NY attorney general's office over the weekend.

The woman, the sixth to accuse Cuomo of inappropriate behavior, is now not being identified.

Moments later, WSYR reporter Andrew Donovan followed up, asking Cuomo how he explained the bombshell claims against him to his three, 20-something-year-old daughters. In the news conference, the governor denied ever touching any women "inappropriately".

Once alone, the source said Cuomo closed the door, then reached under the unnamed aide's shirt and allegedly began to fondle her. "All allegations that we learn of directly or indirectly are going promptly to the investigators appointed by the attorney general", his acting counsel says.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D-NY) was pressed again on the growing number of claims of sexual harassment being leveled at him.

Hearing those remarks, the female aide became emotional.

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.

More than 1,000 people a day are receiving vaccines at the site, dependent on the number of doses sent to the Health Department. The government is seeking to get 3.5 million doses of vaccines which will be used to inoculate 65% of the population.

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. As I said last week I never made any inappropriate advances.

Cuomo has been under fire for weeks, beginning with revelations that his administration withheld details from the public about the pandemic's death toll among residents in state nursing homes.

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

With the flow of COVID-19 vaccine doses from the federal government to NY ramping up, the state continues to work to get as many "shots in arms" as quickly as possible.

Assembly member Pat Fahy, who had joined a group of female lawmakers urging NY to wait for the investigation to pass judgment on Cuomo, said she's now "torn" and plans to decide in the morning whether she'll call on him to resign.

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