Governor Andrew Cuomo, in his first public appearance since being questioned by the state Attorney General’s office on allegations of sexual harassment, cast doubt on the motives of the investigators, saying it’s likely that “politics” are involved.
The New York state Senate approved a measure this week to allow adult survivors of sexual harassment and assault to bring their abusers to court. Advocates hailed the action, but said they are increasingly frustrated and “alarmed” over the state Assembly's failure to act on the bill and on other anti-sexual harassment measures.
A new poll finds that while Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s popularity has waned since he’s been embroiled in a number of scandals, including allegations of sexual harassment, more New Yorkers believe the embattled governor should hang on than think he should resign.
