BREAKING: Independent investigators find NY Gov. Andrew Cuomo sexually harassed several aides, broke the law
Josefa Velasquez, senior reporter for The City, tweets:
NY Gov. Andrew Cuomo sexually harassed several aides, a highly anticipated report released by Attorney General Tish James’ office has found. The outside investigators hired by James’ office found that Cuomo created a “hostile work environment” “rife with fear and intimidation.”
The findings of the report could fuel support for impeachment proceedings against Mr. Cuomo in the State Legislature, which Democrats overwhelmingly control, lead to additional calls for his resignation and influence public opinion as he considers running for a fourth term. Outside lawyers hired by the Assembly’s judiciary committee are currently looking at not only the sexual harassment claims, but a series of scandals with a common theme: whether or not Mr. Cuomo abused his power while in office.
