ALBANY (Politico): Gov. Andrew Cuomo committed several acts of sexual ha-rassment that violated federal and state law, including the very regulations he signed and promoted in the aftermath of the #MeToo movement, according to a long-awaited and devastating report issued Tuesday by state Attorney General Tish James.
The report, released after an investigation was launched in March, concluded that the accusations of multiple women, many of them former or current state employees, were credible.
“The investigation has concluded that Gov. Andrew Cuomo sexually harassed multiple women and, in doing so, violated federal and state law. Specifically, 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 said in her opening remarks.
“The investigators independently corroborated and substantiated these facts through interviews and evidence, including contemporaneous notes and communications.”
