Andrew Cuomo is already having a tough time convincing anyone that he’s a good guy, after six women have come forward to accuse him of highly inappropriate sexual behavior, ranging from off-color public remarks to groping incidents that are now being investigated by authorities.
Somehow, Cuomo hasn’t found it in himself to resign, despite an increasing number of calls for him to do so, coming from some of the most prominent figures in the Democratic Party. As far as the governor is concerned, these women are all telling lies.
After Cuomo categorically denied any and all allegations against him, the women involved have been revealing some embarrassing details of their interactions with the grabby governor, and the details in their tales certainly appear to lend credibility to their claims.
Charlotte Bennett, who has accused Cuomo of sexual harassment, spoke with outside lawyers hired by Attorney General Letitia James for more than four hours on Monday by Zoom, lawyer Debra Katz said.
Bennett, 25, also turned over more than 120 pages of “contemporaneous records, as well as other examples of documentary evidence” against the 63-year-old governor and his staff, Katz said.
In a prepared statement, Katz said a new piece of information that came to light was Cuomo’s “preoccupation with his hand size and what the large size of his hands indicated to Charlotte and other members of his staff.”
These details not only add another, more personal element to these claims, but they could act to corroborate the experiences that other women had in Cuomo’s presence or bring more accusers forward.
