Cuomo sues NY state attorney general over refusal to pay legal fees
Former Gov. Andrew Cuomo is suing New York State Attorney General Letitia James.
This was first reported by The Times Union.
Cuomo says the attorney general’s office was wrong to refuse to pay for legal fees, after a state police investigator accused the now ex-governor of inappropriately touching her.
That investigator was one of nearly a dozen women who accused Cuomo of sexual misconduct.
In a statement released on Thursday, Cuomo spokesperson Rich Azzopardi said:
“The report has been reviewed by five separate district attorneys and every single one has declined to move forward based on it — it was nothing more than a political document and holds no legal weight. Their political games continue.”
