ALBANY, N.Y. (WIVB) — A sixth person has come forward accusing Governor Andrew Cuomo of inappropriate conduct.
According to the Albany Times Union, the woman told a supervisor that Cuomo inappropriately touched her while she was at the governor’s mansion for work.
Her identity is being withheld but the paper reports she is a member of the executive chamber staff.
The newspaper says the governor’s office learned of the allegation over the weekend.
Acting Counsel Beth Garvey told the Times Union all allegations are “going promptly to the investigators appointed by the attorney general.”
Five other women have come forward in recent weeks to accuse the governor of sexual harassment or inappropriate conduct.
Greater Rochester Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Bob Duffy issued the following statement in response to the recent allegations against Governor Cuomo.
Duffy, who previously served as Gov. Cuomo’s lieutenant governor, said Tuesday, “Those coming forward deserve to be heard and to have their allegations be thoroughly and independently investigated. I have confidence that the Attorney General’s office and designated attorneys will do just that.”
