New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo broke days of silence amid allegations of sexual harassment by three women to apologize for any offence taken but saying he won’t resign and denying ever “touching anyone inappropriately.”
“I certainly never meant to offend anyone or cause anyone any pain. This is the last thing I would ever want to do. I ask the people of the state to wait for the facts from the Attorney General’s report before forming an opinion. Get the facts please,” Cuomo said of AG Leticia James’ probe. He spoke at his first press briefing in a week as calls for his resignation swirled.
Two former aides have accused him of sexual harassment over the past week. A guest at a wedding disclosed who did not work for him also alleged inappropriate behavior with a photo of the governor holding her face as she said he attempted a kiss.
