Report Finds Governor Cuomo Sexually Assaulted Multiple Women

Report Finds Governor Cuomo Sexually Assaulted Multiple Women

After a month-long investigation, it was found that Governor Andrew Cuomo sexually assaulted multiple different women. The report released on Tuesday focused on the allegations made by 11 different women, 9 of who are current and former state employees. New York state attorney general, Letitia James, said that Governor Cuomo retaliated against one of the women who had spoken out.

The 165-page report stated that Cuomo and his aides cultivated a toxic work culture. They created a hostile work environment and allowed harassment to take place.

Ms. James shared with the press that Governor Cuomo sexually harassed current and former state employees, violating both state and federal laws. She stated the investigation found that Governor Cuomo harassed multiple women, by engaging in unwanted kisses, groping, hugging, and by many inappropriate comments.

Ms. James claims the report revealed “a deeply disturbing, yet clear picture” and “conduct that corrodes the very fabric and character of our state government and shines a light on the injustice that can be present at the highest levels of government.”

Cuomo responded to the report by reiterating that he never engaged in any inappropriate behavior.

In the past when responding to these allegations Governor Cuomo has expressed that he tends to hug and kiss people when greeting them in an attempt to convey warmth.“I do it with everyone,” Mr. Cuomo said, offering the pictures as evidence.

He also made a point to defend his workplace and assuring that it is not a toxic environment but rather high pressure and demanding.

The governor said there will be a document posted on his website to refute each of the women’s claims.

The findings of the report could fuel support for impeachment proceedings against Mr. Cuomo. As well as influence public opinion as he considers running for a fourth term or could serve as a reason for resignation.
