Five women accused Gov. Cuomo of sexual harassment
The governor’s office requested AG James’ office to appoint a legal expert to conduct an independent investigation into sexual harassment accusations by five women.
Ana Liss, a former policy and operations aide to Gov. Cuomo, claimed that he called her sweetheart, touched her on her lower back during a reception, and inquired if she had a boyfriend. She also claimed that the governor once kissed her hand.
Liss told the Wall Street Journal that she initially considered Gov. Cuomo’s unsolicited actions as harmless flirtations. However, her perception regarding the Governor’s actions changed over time as she felt diminished.
