ALBANY, NY- The plot has thickened in one of the most serious inappropriate gesture allegations against Governor Cuomo.
The Associated Press is reporting the staffer who accused the Governor of groping her at the Executive Mansion claims that the Governor slammed the door to his office and said “I don’t care” when she protested his actions.
The woman revealed her claims to the Times Union Newspaper in Albany on the condition of anonymity to guard her privacy.
On the other hand, her identity is known within the Governor’s staff, the report says.
The woman previously revealed that she was summoned to the Governor’s mansion last November to assist with fixing an iPhone.
When she walked in, she alleged that Governor Cuomo began groping her aggressively. “I said to him, I said, ‘You’re going to get us in trouble,’” she recalled. “I didn’t know what else to say. … It was pretty much like ‘What are you doing?’ That’s when he slammed the door (shut). He said, ‘I don’t care.’”
Cuomo has denied all claims against him and refuses to step down until an investigation, overseen via New York’s Attorney General, is complete.
At the same time, the State Assembly is handling their own investigation to determine if there are grounds to impeach the Governor.
