The United States’ Governor Andrew Cuomo of New York State has been enmeshed in a sexual harassment scandal following the outcome of an investigation which indicted him for sexually harassing many women.

The report from the Attorney General’s office is the result of months of inquiry that saw investigators speak to nearly 200 people, including some of those who made complaints against the governor.

Letitia James, New York Attorney General, has in the damming report, concluded that Governor Andrew Cuomo “sexually harassed multiple women.”

The report says Cuomo “grabbed and kissed employees inappropriately. including employees at his office; and in doing so violated federal and state laws.”

“Governor Cuomo sexually harassed current and former New York State employees by engaging in unwelcome and non-consensual touching and making numerous offensive comments of a suggestive sexual nature that created a hostile work environment for women,” the report says.

It would be recalled that Cuomo  was accused of sexual misconduct by several women in December 2020.

Cuomo’s former aide, Boylan, was the first to accuse the governor of sexual harassment and kissing her against her will.

Boylan had followed up her scandalous allegations with a series of tweets sharing her experience for the first time.

“Yes, Cuomo sexually harassed me for years. Many saw it, and watched.

“I could never anticipate what to expect: would I be grilled on my work (which was very good) or harassed about my looks?

“Or would it be both in the same conversation? This was the way for years,” the ex-aide to the governor had tweeted.

The governor has however repeatedly denied the allegations and rejected calls from fellow Democrats to resign.

The report also reveals that the governor and his team threatened to retaliate against women who came out.
