"All allegations that we learn of directly or indirectly are going promptly to the investigators appointed by the attorney general", Beth Garvey, attorney for Gov. Cuomo said after the allegation became public knowledge.

Cuomo is accusing him of sexual harassment, saying that he asked her questions about her sex life, whether she was monogamous in her relationships and if she had sex with older men. I never made any inappropriate advances.

Cuomo's latest accuser has remained anonymous so far, as she has not filed a formal complaint with the office of the governor.

Meanwhile, the Crown Publishing Group told The New York Times Monday it will stop promoting and printing Governor Cuomo's book about New York's coronavirus outbreak. "I said last week no one ever told me at the time that I made them feel uncomfortable", said Cuomo.

The woman, a member of the governor's Executive Chamber staff, says she was called to the governor's mansion to help Cuomo late past year, and while there, he touched her inappropriately without her consent, the Albany Times-Union reports.

Five other women, including four who worked for the governor throughout his career, have publicly accused Cuomo of misconduct or inappropriate behavior. "In response, those aides failed to report Charlotte's claims to the Governor's Office of Employee Relations, as they were legally required", she said.

Asked Tuesday whether he will seek a fourth term, a feat that eluded his late father, Gov. Mario Cuomo, the governor said he's focused on COVID recovery and vaccinations.

In the meantime, GOP state legislators have taken steps to remove Cuomo from office amid growing calls for his resignation.

Prior to Wednesday's report, the allegations against Cuomo include a combination of claims that he made the workplace an uncomfortable place for young women, ranging from flirtatious comments to a nonconsensual kiss. "There's capital crimes, there's physical violence, down to more minor allegations". That the governor does not deny touching people, but insists he never did it inappropriately, shows he is committed to gaslighting victims and perpetuating these lies.
