Two more former aides alleged sexual misconduct against New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo Saturday.
A former press aide to the governor, Karen Hinton, told The Washington Post that Cuomo summoned her to his “dimly lit” hotel room and embraced her twice after a work event in 2000.
Hinton said she pulled away from Cuomo and he pulled her back toward his body, holding her in embrace before she backed out of the room.
At the same time, another former aide, Anna Liss, said that when she worked for Cuomo as a policy and operations aide from 2013 to 2015, the governor asked her if she had a boyfriend, touched her on her lower back and kissed her hand as she rose from her desk.
Liss said she initially thought Cuomo’s flirtations were harmless, but over time came to see them as patronizing. She said it diminished her from an educated professional to “just a skirt.”
“It’s not appropriate, really, in any setting,” she said.
Does anyone have any problem picturing Cuomo doing exactly what these women claim?
