11 Women Testified That Cuomo Committed Sexual Harassment

A months-long investigation conducted by the state Attorney General concluded this week. It said that Cuomo sexually harassed at least 11 former and current state employees.

New York State Attorney General Letitia James’ independent report came out with details. It said that Cuomo regularly engaged in “unwanted groping, kissing, and hugging”. He also made inappropriate remarks toward staffers. Also, he oversaw a workplace culture “rife with fear and intimidation.”

The State Attorney General’s report included specific allegations from 11 women. The report corroborated each of the women’s testimony and supplied additional evidence. Ultimately, the investigation concluded that Cuomo’s behavior showed a pattern. In addition, they found all 11 women’s testimonies credible.

Biden Stands By Earlier Statement That Cuomo Should Resign

Meanwhile, White House media asked Biden if he maintains his earlier stance last March. Earlier this year, the President said that Cuomo should resign if an investigation confirmed allegations of harassment.

Biden said he will stand by with his statement. Asked point-blank if Cuomo should resign, the President confirmed yes, he should.

However, Cuomo stopped short when asked if the governor should face impeachment if he refuses to resign. “Let’s take one thing at a time here. I think he should resign. I understand the state legislature may decide to impeach,” Biden added.

Many Are Calling For Cuomo To Step Down

With the release of the James report, a growing number of officials from both parties are putting pressure on Cuomo to resign over the sexual harassment charges. This includes a former stalwart ally, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

In addition, James said that while the investigation’s findings were “civil in nature,” authorities can pursue criminal charges against the embattled governor. Biden himself said he has yet to read the entire report. Because of this, he would not comment on whether Cuomo should face criminal prosecution.

Cuomo Remains Defiant, Denies Sexual Harassment

On the other hand, a defiant Andrew Cuomo denied wrongdoing despite the James report’s findings. He issued a video message following the report’s release and insisted he did nothing wrong. Specifically, Cuomo said he “never touched anyone inappropriately or made inappropriate sexual advances.”

The New York governor also said that ​​his accusers misunderstood his physical touches. He also insisted that the women “read into comments that I made and draw inferences that I never meant. They heard things I just didn’t say,” Cuomo declared.

Accusers Also Complained Of Hostile Workplace Environment

Most of Cuomo’s accusers chose to remain anonymous in the report. However, nine of the accusers were individuals employed by the State of New York. While the report did not state their names, it did disclose their positions within the administration. This included testimonies from an “executive assistant” who accused Cuomo of “aggressive” groping.

In addition, the accuser also said that the Governor maintained a hostile workplace environment. Cuomo fostered this environment to intimidate and silence them from speaking out.

“The complainants also described how the culture within the Executive Chamber—rife with fear and intimidation and accompanied by a consistent overlooking of inappropriate flirtations and other sexually suggestive and gender-based comments by the Governor—enabled the above-described instances of harassment to occur and created a hostile work environment overall,” the report said.

    Talk about a wolf telling the dog to get out of the henhouse!! Biden pointing his finger at Cuomo about sexual assault is past comical in the most pathetic kind of way!

    C’mon man. What’s all the outrage about, Joe? You’ve done your share of handy work with your staff, and basically any woman or child in the vicinity. Nothing like a little hair sniffing, while you move your hands over their soft body. And when you show the kids how your leg hair moves in the water and tell them they can touch it, it’s all in fun, man.

  • Mark Hiatt says:

    Biden and Cuomo both should resign, both should be tried and prosecuted. Makes you wonder why they want to remove Cuomo, maybe AOC wants the job

  • Helen says:

    He is due his time in court? where is the so called justice here. He is convicted without a trial. Whatever happened to innocent until proven guilty? He is already convicted. Like people don’t lie.

  • Huapakechi says:

    When ya feel heat and smell smoke, you’d better be thinking fire. coumo used his power like weinstein, and this is a common trait among the rich and powerful.
    If one of his victims had perhaps delivered a visible injury for his actions, he would have become more circumspect in his activities.
    The problem is that those women who flock to power are reluctant to raise objections, thinking that they must accept such treatment to benefit from proximity to power.

  • Matk says:
