(CNN)New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Sunday he's "truly sorry" and that some of his previous workplace comments were "misinterpreted as an unwanted flirtation" as he faces allegations of sexual harassment.
"I acknowledge some of the things I have said have been misinterpreted as an unwanted flirtation. To the extent anyone felt that way, I am truly sorry about that," Cuomo said in a statement. He maintained that he never touched anyone inappropriately or propositioned anyone.
The statement came hours after Cuomo changed course earlier Sunday and asked the New York attorney general and the chief judge of the state court of appeals to jointly select an independent attorney to conduct "a thorough review" of sexual harassment claims against him.

Wonder what Fredo(I'll F'ing wreck your sh!t) has to say about all this. Seems bullying runs in the family.
He’s blaming the victim!
How Dem of him.
Misinterpreted?? Sorry...you also said you were trying to be funny. So there was no misinterpretation.
As long as he is “truly” sorry . . .
you ever murder an older person???
That murdering piece of filth is just sorry he got caught.
Whenever I see Cuomo, I think mob boss.
Fail ! Sorry isn’t going to fly. I think his political career is about to come to a close .
Kissing a woman on the lips without her permission, is not a misinterpretation.
I suppose those 15,000 dead elderly at the nursing homes is also a misinterpretation.
Cuomo has his @zz covered in all directions.
But the nursing home deaths, he meant those.
“Accept my apology or sleep with the fishes.”
Classic too little too late. He’s done. Expect him to resign next, less than a month.
Classic. I’m sorry that you’re an idiot.
Misinterpreting means you are wrong. The kiss and hit on you was supposed to be funny. He does it all the time.
Of course sometimes it works, so he keeps doing it.
I notice his live in girl friend moved out recently. That was a clue.
It’s one of those weasley, half @SS apologies.
It won’t go over well.
It’s a non-denial denial.
How Nixonian of Fredo’s bro.
I'd sure like one more to come to the front...because sexual harassment is a habit.
Especially since he said he was trying to be funny.
AND if he was alone with these women, that's another thing. And you can be sure that they haven't told everything to the media and there are some surprises up ahead.
She moved out. That is a clue....a big one.
BALONEY!! Pride goes before a fall....
