According to the Times Union the woman alleges the governor inappropriately touched her late a year ago during an encounter at the governor's mansion where she was working.

Cuomo took the opportunity and then closed the door and allegedly reached under the woman's blouse and began to fondle her, according to the source. The newspaper's reporting is based on an unidentified source, who knows the aide and discussed the allegation with her.

Mayer said that the collective weight of the allegations of withholding information on the nursing home and the latest controversy, skirting construction safety on the Gov. Mario M. Cuomo Bridge makes his departure imperative, she said.

It comes a day after a former federal prosecutor and employment lawyer were appointed to investigate the allegations. "I am not going to speak to the specifics of this or any other allegation given the ongoing review, but I am confident in the result of the attorney general's report".

During a briefing on March 3, Cuomo said he would not resign.

In addition to the numerous allegations of sexual misconduct, Cuomo remains under intense scrutiny-including from lawmakers within his own party such as Kim-surrounding his handling of the Covid-19 pandemic and his decision to shield nursing homes from liability even as facilities were ordered to accept coronavirus patients despite soaring infections and death rates. I never made any inappropriate advances. "I remain deeply impressed with the talent and dedication of my legal team and will forever be grateful for having the opportunity to serve New Yorkers". 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. At least one female supervisor came to her aide and asked her why she was upset.

Boylan, the first of the governor's accusers to step forward, in recent days has criticized the politically powerful allies of Cuomo who have remained silent in the face of the numerous allegations.

Ms Ruch, 33, told the New York Times she was "so confused and shocked and embarrassed" by the encounter. Another, Anna Ruch, told The New York Times that she met Cuomo at a friend's wedding.

"Talking questions of abuses of power, questions of leadership, question of leadership style, now questions of sexual harassment, and what that means and what it says", Septimo said Monday on an online stream she posted on Twitter.

A woman named Karen Hinton is the fourth accuser, and was once one of Mr Cuomo's top aides. "Obviously, there are people who said after the fact they felt uncomfortable". A two-thirds majority vote would be required to convict Cuomo and remove him from office.

Ana Liss is another aide who has accused him of sexual harassment and said she felt reduced to "just a skirt" by his behaviour towards her. She has said Cuomo asked about her sex life and asked if she would be open to a relationship with an older man. Bennett did not allege that Cuomo tried to grope her.
