De Blasio wants independent investigation into Cuomo sex harassment claims

Mayor Bill de Blasio called Thursday for an investigation into allegations of sexual misconduct against Governor Andrew Cuomo, emphasizing that the only worthy investigation will be an independent one. 

Reacting to a lengthy essay published by former Cuomo aide Lindsey Boylan that detailed multiple alleged instances of sexual harassment from the governor, the mayor said the accusations deserve to be taken seriously.
