Cuomo refers sexual misconduct investigation to state attorney general

Governor Andrew Cuomo has referred the investigation into his own conduct to state Attorney General Letitia James after two women have come forward with sexual harassment allegations in the past week.

The call for an independent investigation has picked up steam after Lindsey Boylan, former Chief of Staff for Empire State Development, and former aide Charlotte Bennett told their stories about alleged indecent proposals and pointed questions of a sexual nature in their interactions with Cuomo.
