NY governor Andrew Cuomo did sexually harass women who worked for him, New York’s Attorney General has found after a five-month-long investigation.
According to AG Letitia James report that was released on Tuesday, Cuomo sexually harassed ‘young women’ who worked for him with ‘unwanted groping, sexualized comments and hugging’.
The investigation also found that he fostered a ‘toxic work environment’.
The investigators say he groped the breast of an executive assistant, one of multiple occasions where he allegedly touched her ‘intimately’ without her consent.
The 168-page report was released on Tuesday but it’s unclear if the Governor now faces any criminal charges.
The Governor, who has always denied the allegations, is yet to respond to the report’s findings.

Among the allegations which the report says are true is that he sexually harassed a state trooper by running his ‘finger from her neck down her spine’ while they were sharing an elevator and saying ‘hey you’.
He is also said to have rubbed a state employee’s stomach, ran his finger across the chest of another woman, and engaged in ‘widespread pattern’ of subjecting women to ‘unwanted hugs’.
The report concludes: ‘The Governor sexually harassed a number of State employees through unwelcome and unwanted touching, as well as by making numerous offensive and sexually suggestive comments.
‘We find that such conduct was part of a pattern of behavior that extended to his interactions with others outside of State government.’
Non-consensual touching, repeatedly made comments of a sexualized, gender based nature.
