(RepublicanPress.org) – Political futures can turn on a dime, and it appears that New York’s Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo could be entering the final days of his time in office. Federal authorities are investigating him for his alleged mishandling of the COVID-19 pandemic. In addition, the New York Attorney General’s office is investigating him for numerous allegations of sexual harassment.
So far, 10 women have come forward with accusations of sexual harassment against Cuomo. However, the hits keep coming, and the latest revelations about his misconduct regarding his sixth accuser could be a defining moment in his self-inflicted political death spiral.
Her allegations are by far the worst ones lodged against him, and the Albany police are reportedly investigating her claims.
Cuomo Aide Describes Alleged Groping Incident
Cuomo’s sixth accuser prefers to remain anonymous, but supposedly people in Cuomo’s inner circle know exactly who she is and what she claimed happened to her.
She discussed her allegations with the Albany Times Union in a comprehensive interview published on April 7. As she explained, she met with Cuomo at his second-story office in the governor’s mansion sometime last year. He supposedly came around from behind his desk and groped her in an aggressively sexual manner. It wasn’t “just a hug,” she recounted. “He went for it.”
Continuing her account, she said she told Cuomo, “You’re going to get us [into] trouble.” She didn’t know what else to say at the time, she recalled. According to her, he slammed the door shut to his office and told her he didn’t care. At that point, he reached up under her blouse and groped her over her bra.
She said she was hit with a whirlwind of emotion. She walked out of his office and went back to her car, where she sat for a moment contemplating what just happened before returning to her desk at the State Capitol Building.
As one might expect, Cuomo continues to profess his innocence. So far, he’s refused to step down despite numerous calls for his resignation made by Democrats and Republicans alike.
