Another accuser, Charlotte Bennett called Gov. Cuomo a “textbook abuser.” She alleged that the Governor crossed a line on June 5 when he asked questions that made her feel uncomfortable. He allegedly asked her if she’d ever been with an older man. The question made her think that Gov. Cuomo was trying to sleep with me.
Meanwhile, Anna Ruch recalled that he met the Governor at a friend’s wedding reception in September 2019. She alleged that he touched her lower back, put his hands on her cheeks, and asked if he could kiss her. She did not respond. Gov. Cuomo went ahead and gave her a kiss on the cheek. The friend verified Ruch’s story about the incident to CNN.
During a press briefing last week, Gov. Cuomo apologized for “acting “in a way that made people feel uncomfortable.” However, he denied that he touched any woman inappropriately and said she will not resign from his position. He also reiterated that he will cooperate with the investigation into the sexual harassment allegations against him.
