Cuomo pledges ‘full and thorough’ review after shocking new sex harassment claim reported


After another former aide to Governor Andrew Cuomo publicly accused him of sexually harassing her in a bombshell New York Times report Saturday night, the governor has agreed to allow an independent review of his actions.

The report led some state legislators to either call for the governor’s resignation, or to commit to a truly independent investigation by someone not linked to his office.

Charlotte Bennett, who previously served as an executive assistant and health policy adviser during the COVID-19 pandemic, told the Times that Cuomo had previously asked about her sex life on a number of occasions, including during a one-on-one meeting with him last June.
