New York Democratic Governor Andrew Cuomo is also being accused of sexual misconduct by a current aide in his office. The New York Times writes that he looked at his body and commented on his appearance. He also said inappropriate and suggestive things to Alyssa McGrath, 33, and other female colleagues.
Cuomo has been under attack for weeks and is accused of sexual misconduct by more and more women. Cuomo reportedly asked McGrath about the state of his relationship, around his divorce, and he allegedly looked inside her blouse and then said something about a necklace hanging there. Such comments were frequent, according to the assistant to the governor’s office.
The governor is also said to have asked McGrath not to say anything publicly about the allegations made by a former Cuomo employee with whom McGrath is friends. Cuomo reportedly grabbed her breasts. McGrath says Cuomo has never done anything like this to him, but all the looks and comments are sexual harassment.
“I didn’t understand what he was doing until I saw all these other women talking about the behavior of the New York governor,” McGrath told The New York Times.
Cuomo’s attorney dismisses the new charges as “friendly behavior.” “He greets men and women with kisses on the cheeks or forehead and uses Italian terms like ‘ciao bella’ in a friendly manner. He doesn’t mean anything by that.
The last few weeks have been regular asked for Cuomo’s resignation, also by other party members. For the moment, Cuomo refuses to resign himself.
