On Tuesday, New York Attorney General Letitia James released information that an independent investigation found Democrat Gov. Andrew Cuomo had sexually harassed eleven women.
Life News reports:
James, also a Democrat, gave a press conference to conclude the investigation, saying that after speaking to dozens of witnesses and reviewing evidence from multiple sources, investigators determined that Cuomo had subjected employees to offensive and sexually charged comments or unwanted touching as well as pressure campaigns to keep them quiet. She concluded that in so doing, the governor had violated both state and federal law.
“The independent investigation has concluded that Gov. Andrew Cuomo sexually arrested multiple women and violated federal and state law,” James began. “The investigation found that Gov. Andrew 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 and sexual nature that created a hostile work environment for women.”
James went on to say that the independent investigators had spoken to the alleged victims as well as dozens of other witnesses — and had reviewed hundreds of emails and text messages as well.
“The investigators corroborated and substantiated these facts through interviews and evidence, including contemporaneous notes and communications. This evidence will be made available to the public along with the report,” James added. “This investigation was started after a number of women publicly alleged that they had been sexually harassed by Gov. Cuomo.”
“The investigators found that Cuomo’s actions and those of the executive chamber violated multiple state and federal laws as well as the executive chamber’s own written policies,” James continued. “This investigation has revealed conduct that corrodes the very fabric and character of our state government and shines light on injustice that can be present at the highest levels of government.”
