At least seven women, including several who used to work with Cuomo's administration, have accused the governor of inappropriate behavior, unwanted advances and other misconduct.

Sherry Vill, 55, said she was left rattled and afraid to come forward after the encounter in which Cuomo called her attractive and twice kissed her aggressively on the cheeks during a visit to her home in Greece, a suburb of Rochester.

Sherry Vill now joins nine other women who has accused Governor Andrew Cuomo of sexual misconduct.

"Women have the right to come forward and be heard, and I encourage that", Cuomo said in a press conference earlier this month.

Someone from Cuomo's office left Vill a voicemail days after the encounter asking if she would attend an upcoming event in the area.

"I never harassed anyone, I never assaulted anyone, I never abused anyone", Cuomo has said.

Min Aung Hlaing referred to "terrorism which can be harmful to state tranquility and social security", and called it unacceptable. The United Nations special envoy on Myanmar , Christine Schraner Burgener, said the military had turned against its own citizens.

"Only specifically me", she said.

She is said to be fiercely loyal to Mr Cuomo and is alleged to have berated journalists, officials, and lawmakers who have crossed the governor in the past.

In addition to James' investigation, Cuomo also faces an FBI probe into whether his administration provided false data regarding the number of nursing home deaths during the coronavirus pandemic, reported the New York Times. The governor has repeatedly denied claims that he has ever "touched anyone inappropriately". One, who has yet to speak publicly, reportedly said the governor groped her at the executive mansion last summer. Later, he came back and grabbed her face and kissed her cheek. "Due to the multiple, credible sexual harassment and misconduct allegations, it is clear that Governor Cuomo has lost the confidence of his governing partners and the people of NY".

Cuomo's office has not issued a statement addressing the latest round of allegations.

Since then, the governor has refused to take questions about the allegations against him, citing the multiple ongoing probes.
