Investigator says Cuomo crossed the line
One of the attorneys appointed by the attorney general spoke about Gov. Cuomo’s interactions with women, including a state trooper assigned to his detail.
Attorney Anne Clark identified one current employee as "Executive Assistant Number 1."
"On November 16, 2020, in the Executive Mansion, the governor hugged Executive Assistant Number One, and reached under her blouse to grab her breast," said Clark.
Clark said several times the governor inappropriately touched a state trooper assigned to his protection unit.
"In an elevator, while standing behind the trooper, he ran his finger from her neck down her spine and said, ‘Hey, you.’ Another time, she was standing holding the door open for the governor, as he passed, he took his open hand and ran it across her stomach, from her belly button, to her hip where she keeps her gun," said Clark.
Clark said the trooper told them she felt completely violated.
The investigator detailed inappropriate touching and a widespread pattern of unwanted hugs and kisses, and touching.
"Conduct that is not just old-fashioned affectionate behavior as he and some of his staff members would have it, but unlawful, sex based harassment," said Clark.
Clark also said there were comments that crossed the line.
Now that the attorney general has concluded her investigation, could this lead to criminal charges? Hear what the investigators think, and if Albany police say any complaint was ever filed by watching the video of Kumi Tucker’s story.
