Cuomo responds to ‘gut-wrenching’ sexual harassment allegations by sixth accuser

Yet another woman has come forward to publicly accuse Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo of sexual harassment.

The embattled governor is continuing to plead his innocence in the wake of a sixth accusation, which represents the most serious claims yet against him.

“Going promptly to the investigators”

According to an aide to the governor, he reached under her blouse and “aggressively groped” her during an alleged interaction last year.

The Albany Times-Union initially reported on Tuesday that Cuomo called the woman, who worked on the executive chamber staff, to the governor’s mansion ostensibly to attend a work-related meeting.

Beth Garvey, who serves as Cuomo’s counsel, issued a statement in light of the most recent accusations, stating: “All allegations that we learn of directly or indirectly are going promptly to the investigators appointed by the attorney general.”

A second report from the Times-Union provided a more graphic account of the alleged harassment, including claims that the governor summoned the woman to help then closed the door and began fondling her.

The accuser’s name is being withheld by the newspaper.

“I have never done anything like this”

Although Cuomo called the woman’s account “gut-wrenching” in a subsequent statement, he is once again denying any wrongdoing.

“As I said yesterday, I have never done anything like this,” he said. “The details of this report are gut-wrenching. I am not going to speak to the specifics of this or any other allegation given the ongoing review, but I am confident in the result of the attorney general’s report.”

The latest report contains the gravest allegations of sexual misconduct yet against Cuomo, whose once-heralded stature has taken a serious hit in recent days amid accusations of unwanted sexual comments and advances.

Former aide Lindsey Boylan, for example, claimed that he forcibly kissed her and made comments about playing strip poker. As a result of the deepening scandal, the governor is facing bipartisan calls for him to resign, though he is refusing to do so.

Addressing the situation on Tuesday, Cuomo said: “I never touched anyone inappropriately. As I said last week, I never made any inappropriate advances. As I said last week, no one ever told me at the time that I made them feel uncomfortable.”
