Gov. Andrew Cuomo violated federal and state laws, finding he finding he “sexually harassed multiple women” and then retaliated against the victims when they came forward creating a “toxic” atmosphere in the executive chamber.
The blockbuster announcement Tuesday is the result of a probe that found Cuomo engaged in “unwanted groping, kissing, hugging and making inappropriate comments,” James said.
James alerted reporters to an 11 a.m. news conference in her Lower Manhattan office without revealing the subject but sources familiar with the matter said it will involve the investigation she launched in March.
The probe involved accusations that Cuomo, 63, sexually harassed several current and former female staffers, most of whom are in their 20s or 30s.
The most serious allegation made public to date came from a current aide who says Cuomo reached under her blouse and groped her inside his Executive Mansion office in Albany last year.
