New York Governor Andrew Cuomo is coming under increasing pressure in the face of new harassment allegations. Two other ex-employees made allegations against the politician in the US media. Previously, three women had accused Cuomo, who was elected for a third term in 2018, of having inappropriately touched or verbally harassed them in the past.
Quoted to the hotel room
Cuomo called her after an event in 2000 in his dimly lit hotel room and hugged her, Karen Hinton told the Washington Post. When she backed away, Cuomo pulled her back to himself, the woman was quoted as saying, who was an advisor to Cuomo, who was then active in the building ministry. You have loosened and left the room. Cuomo’s spokesman, Peter Ajemian, vehemently denied their allegations: “That didn’t happen,” he told the Washington Post. Hinton was an opponent of the governor and her claims from 21 years ago were fabricated, he was quoted as saying.
“Do you have a Friend?”
Meanwhile, another ex-employee brought Cuomo’s allegations of inappropriate workplace behavior against him. Ana Liss told the Wall Street Journal that he asked if she had a boyfriend and kissed her hand. He also hugged her at a reception in 2014, kissed her on both cheeks and put his arm around her lower back. Then they turned to a photographer who took a picture of Cuomo’s hand on the woman’s waist.
