AG Report: HRC President Alphonso David Helped Cuomo After Accusations


Human Rights Campaign (HRC) President Alphonso David, who previously served as top counsel to Governor Andrew Cuomo, worked behind the scenes to protect the governor after multiple accusers came forward with numerous sexual harassment allegations, according to the explosive report detailed by the office of New York Attorney General Letitia James.

David handed over an accuser’s personnel file to the governor’s team, sought to convince women to sign a statement praising the governor, participated in discussions to secretly record another accuser, and was among those who Cuomo “actively consulted” in the aftermath of the allegations, according to the report.
