Hot on the heels of an egregious COVID-19 coverup scandal, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has more trouble coming.
Cuomo’s controversial decision to utilize some of the Empire State’s nursing homes to handle overflow COVID-19 patients was already troubling enough, but reports that he and his associates worked to cover up the true extent of the damage done by that decision have some folks unable to forgive him.
This week, his trouble compounded after a former aide accused Cuomo of persist and degrading bouts of sexual harassment spanning over several years.
Despite a muted response from the mainstream media, the New York State Attorney General is now taking a look at the situation.
New York Attorney General Letitia James is reviewing a letter from state senators asking her office to investigate the sexual harassment allegations against New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, Fox News has learned.
Republican state Sens. Patricia Richie, Susan Serino, Pamela Helming, Daphne Jordan and Alexis Weik penned a letter to James’ office requesting a “formal investigation” into the allegations of “abusive, sexist and harassing behavior” of Cuomo toward his former aide, Lindsey Boylan.
The senators, in the letter, requested the “immediate appointment of a Special Prosecutor to conduct this investigation,” and called the allegations “potentially criminal in nature.”
“At a minimum, the seriousness of these allegations clearly warrant a comprehensive, immediate investigation by an independent special prosecutor,” they wrote.
Cuomo categorically denied Boylan’s claims, but the former staffer provided some circumstantial evidence that appears to back up her story.
