‘Overwhelming Evidence’ Former NY Gov. Andrew Cuomo Sexually Harassed Women

In Summary

An investigation from the New York Assembly revealed that the allegations could’ve been the groundwork for an impeachment proceeding against Cuomo.

Andrew Cuomo, who used to be Governor of New York, sexually harassed at least 12 women, wasn’t forthcoming relating to the number of nursing home residents who died of COVID-19 and used taxpayer dollars to write and promote his book on leadership during the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, according to CNN

45-page report from the New York Assembly was commissioned in March to investigate the allegations against Cuomo which could’ve been the groundwork for an impeachment proceeding if he did not resign. According to CNN, it follows a separate probe that also found Cuomo sexually harassing multiple women. 

“We conclude that there is overwhelming evidence that the former Governor engaged in sexual harassment,” the assembly report, which was conducted by attorneys from Davis Polk & Wardell, states

This report is similar to the findings of New York Attorney General Letita James’ probe into the former governor’s sexual harassment allegations.

Cuomo has stated that these multiple allegations are not true, and has said he did not deliberately lie about the nursing home deaths. He believed the writing and promotion of his book lived up to ethical standards, according to CNN.  

“The Assembly’s report simply parrots the Attorney General’s flawed report, failing to engage with the many errors and omissions in the AG’s report and her one-sided, biased investigation,” Cuomo’s lawyer Rita Galvin said in a statement

This newly released probe widens the scope of alleged misconduct against Cuomo. 

“The former governor’s conduct—as shown in this report—is extremely disturbing and is indicative of someone who is not fit for office,” said Assembly Judiciary Chairman Charles Lavine in a statement. “I hope this report helps New Yorkers further understand the seriousness of the allegations that have been made and serves to guide us to a more ethical and responsible government.”
