After a 2nd previous assistant stepped forward with sexual harassment claims versus New York Gov.
Andrew Cuomo, the governor acknowledged in a declaration Sunday night that some of his actions towards his staff might have been “insensitive” but stated his remarks had “been misinterpreted as an unwanted flirtation.”
Previously on Sunday, Cuomo asked New york city’s attorney general and also the state’s principal judge to choose an independent private investigator to assess the complaints against him.
“On Sunday evening, Mr. Cuomo issued an apology of sorts, saying, “I acknowledge some of the things I have said have been misinterpreted as an unwanted flirtation.
“To the extent anyone felt that way,” he said. “I am truly sorry about that.”
The deepening scandal marks one of the lowest points of Mr. Cuomo’s tenure and has thrust his political future into uncertainty, as he faces renewed scrutiny over his administration’s decision to withhold data on nursing home deaths during the pandemic.
Here’s what we know so far.”Source
