New Accuser says Cuomo Kissed Her in Front of Her Family

Activists gather outside of Gov. Andrew Cuomo's New York office on Saturday March 27 demanding that he be impeached amid sexual harassment allegations. Tiffany Cabán a progressive activist and candidate for New York City Council said

The attorney general's office reportedly sent out subpoenas to top aides, including Secretary to the Governor Melissa DeRosa, as part of the investigation of sexual harassment allegations made against the governor.

An upstate New York woman said New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo grabbed her face and kissed her cheek at her home during a visit to inspect area flood damage, becoming the latest woman to accuse the embattled governor of inappropriate behavior.

They spoke before a big picture of Cuomo that was infused with an image of Trump, who was accused by more than two dozen women of sexual misconduct in the past.

"I felt like I was being manhandled", she recounted.

"That happens in every investigation, and it's wildly premature to speculate what it means", he added. "Good, thorough, and fair investigations take time", Fishman said to the Journal.

It is unclear which other members of the administration have been subpoenaed by the attorney general's office.


The demonstration was organized on behalf of women workers who say they are fed up with having to deal with harassment on the job, and the culture of tolerance trickles down from Albany.

"It is time for Speaker Heastie to use his authority to impeach Governor Cuomo and send a message that workers matter". She has been at the centre of the state's pandemic response.

The Cuomo administration has not issued a statement addressing Vill's claims.

As the accusations mount, the governor has denied any wrongdoing.

Since Cuomo has refused to resign amid sexual harassment allegations from at least eight women, the protesters called on state Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie to impeach the governor if he continues to hold onto power. Attorney Gloria Allred showed photos of Cuomo kissing Vill's cheek and the alleged victim says she was afraid of retribution if she came forward. "I did not do what has been alleged".

He's now under two investigations for his alleged misconduct with women - one led by the state assembly and the other by the Attorney General's office.
