Cuomo Encounters New Claims of Sexual Harassment From Existing Assistant

Cuomo faces new allegation of sexual harassment from existing aide-pook

The aide, Alyssa McGrath, accused Gov. Andrew Cuomo of ogling her body, mentioning on her looks, and also making symptomatic remarks to her and also one more female in his office.

He called her as well as her associate “mingle mamas” He asked about her absence of a wedding event ring, she said, and the standing of her divorce. She recalled him telling her she was beautiful — in Italian– and, as she sat alone with him in his workplace waiting for dictation, he gazed down her shirt and also discussed her necklace hanging there.

In the most up to date allegation against Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo, Alyssa McGrath, a worker of the guv’s workplace, explained a series of distressing communications with the governor, informing The New York Times that Mr. Cuomo would certainly ogle her body, statement on her appearances, and make symptomatic remarks to her as well as one more exec aide.

The scandal that has engulfed the governor, leading most of the state’s Democratic leaders to call for his resignation, began with the accounts of two former employees, Lindsey Boylan, a former economic development official, and Charlotte Bennett, an executive assistant and senior briefer.

Although Ms. McGrath does not work directly for Mr. Cuomo, she said that she and her co-worker were commonly pulled from the pool of executive chamber assistants to work weekends and at the mansion. Many assistants in the chamber are women, often decades younger than Mr. Cuomo.

Emails reviewed by The Times showed that Mr. Cuomo’s surrogates would often ask Ms. McGrath — who has a young child — and her co-worker to work on weekends at the Capitol building and at the mansion, where the governor lives.

The calls for assistance came from a top scheduling official in the governor’s office, home to a large staff of administrative assistants, many of whom are women who earn a base salary between $40,000 and $60,000 a year, according to state payroll records.

“Hi gals,” read one email sent to the two women on Feb. 29, 2020. “Who can spend a little while with him when he gets back on the book signing project?”
