The latest allegation of sexual misconduct against Gov. Andrew Cuomo became public on Tuesday, with a sixth woman sharing her story working as an aide at the Executive Mansion.
The alleged incident took place late in 2020 when an unnamed aide reported to her supervisor that the governor inappropriately touched her during an encounter at the governor’s mansion.
“All allegations that we learn of directly or indirectly are going promptly to the investigators appointed by the attorney general,” Beth Garvey, attorney for Gov. Cuomo said after the allegation became public knowledge.
“First, I’m not aware of any other claim,” Cuomo said Tuesday. “As I said last week, this is very simple, I never touched anyone inappropriately. I never made any inappropriate advances. [And] no one ever told me at the time that I made them feel uncomfortable. Obviously, there are people who said after the fact they felt uncomfortable.”
Legislators who had been calling for Gov. Cuomo’s resignation continued to do so after the new allegations came out.
