Investigation finds Cuomo sexually harassed several women, violated laws
An investigation found that New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) sexually harassed several women, including some who worked in his office, and violated state and federal laws, state Attorney General Letitia James (D) announced Tuesday.
Beyond the harassment, the independent inquiry launched by James found that Cuomo and his aides retaliated against a former employee who was vocal about her story.
“The independent investigation has concluded that Gov. Andrew Cuomo sexually harassed multiple women, and in doing so violated federal and state law,” James said at a press conference.
“Specifically, the investigation found that Gov. Andrew Cuomo sexually harassed current and former New York state employees by engaging in unwelcome and nonconsensual touching and making numerous offensive comments of a suggestive and sexual nature that created a hostile work environment for women.”
