Another of the criminal cases against former Governor Andrew Cuomo is being dropped.
The Albany Times-Union reports the Albany County District Attorney will drop a forcible touching complaint against the former Governor. Cuomo is scheduled to appear in Albany City Court Friday on another charge. He’s accused of groping a female aide in the Executive Mansion in 2020. There’s no word on whether the DA will move forward with that case.
Two other DA’s have dropped charges against Cuomo. On Monday, the Manhattan County DA said his office has closed its investigation into Cuomo’s reporting of nursing home deaths during the COVID-19 pandemic. Last week, Westchester County DA Miriam E. Rocah said her office would not file charges in case in which Cuomo inappropriately kissed two women, including a State Trooper working on his detail. The Nassau County DA dropped charges in a similar case, saying the allegations did not rise to the level of a crime.
Cuomo has mostly dismissed the accusations against him as political in nature.
