A five-month investigation found that New York Governor Andrew Cuomo sexually harassed multiple women and violated federal and state laws while creating a "climate of fear" in the workplace, New York state Attorney General Letitia James said on Tuesday.
The inquiry showed that Cuomo engaged in unwanted groping, kissing and hugging, and made inappropriate comments, James told a news briefing, adding that the Democratic governor’s office had become a "toxic" workplace that enabled "harassment to occur."
James said the governor and senior staff retaliated against at least one former employee for coming forward with her account.
"Specifically, the investigation found that Governor Andrew Cuomo sexually harassed current and former New York State employees by engaging in unwelcome and non-consensual touching and making numerous offensive comments," James said.
There was no immediate comment from Cuomo’s office.
Cuomo, 63, has denied wrongdoing. No criminal charges have been filed against Cuomo at this time.
