Probe Finds New York Governor Cuomo Sexually Harassed Multiple Women

Cuomo, senior officials sought to retaliate against at least 1 former employee who came forward, report says.

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo sexually harassed multiple women from 2013 through 2020, an independent investigation said Tuesday in a bombshell report.
The finding comes five months after New York Attorney General Letitia James tasked an independent commission led by two outside attorneys with investigating widespread claims from former and current New York state employees. The allegations included unwanted kissing, hugging and groping, as well as inappropriate comments.
The probe determined Cuomo and senior officials retaliated against at least one former employee for coming forward with her claims, according to a statement from James' office.
Cuomo's administration fostered a "toxic" and "hostile" work environment that was "rife with fear and intimidation and accompanied by a consistent overlooking of inappropriate flirtations and other sexually suggestive and gender-based comments by the Governor," the report says.
Those conditions "allowed the sexual harassment to occur and persist," and further "influenced the improper and inadequate ways in which the Executive Chamber has responded to allegations of harassment," investigators Joon Kim and Anne Clark wrote in their 168-page report, using the state's name to refer to the governor's administration.
"This is a sad day for New York because independent investigators have concluded that Governor Cuomo sexually harassed multiple women and, in doing so, broke the law," James said in a statement.
"I am grateful to all the women who came forward to tell their stories in painstaking detail, enabling investigators to get to the truth. No man — no matter how powerful — can be allowed to harass women or violate our human rights laws, period," she added.
The findings will likely play into an ongoing investigation within the state legislature to determine whether there are grounds for Cuomo to be impeached. -
