    As New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo faces mounting sexual misconduct allegations from two female aides, a video has reemerged on social media showing the Democratic governor questionably pressuring a female reporter to eat an entire sausage sandwich in front of him. The video shows the Democratic governor at the 2016 New York State Fair, challenging NewsChannel 9’s Beth Cefalu to eat an entire Gianelli sausage sandwich. “I want to see you eat the whole sausage,” Cuomo can be heard telling Cefalu, as his daughter Michaela sits quietly next to him. A now-former aide to Cuomo could be seen handing Cefalu...

    (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...

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Sunday said the sexual harassment allegations against New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo are “credible.” The California representative joined a chorus of Democrats calling for a truly independent probe into the accusations of misconduct lodged against Cuomo by two of his former staffers. “The women who have come forward with serious and credible charges against Governor Cuomo deserve to be heard and to be treated with dignity,” Pelosi said in a statement. “The independent investigation must have due process and respect for everyone involved.” The statement came as Cuomo, 63, agreed to let state Attorney General...

    New York Democratic Governor Andrew Cuomo released a statement on Sunday afternoon apologizing for his behavior after two women came forward and claimed that he sexually harassed them while they worked in his administration. The statement from Cuomo comes after “Lindsey Boylan, a candidate for Manhattan borough president who formerly worked for Cuomo and the state’s economic development agency, revealed in a blog post on Wednesday that the governor had kissed her without her consent and asked her to play strip poker,” Politico reported. “Then, on Saturday, The New York Times reported that Charlotte Bennett, a former executive assistant and...

'There should be an independent review looking into these allegations,' White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki told CNN's 'State of the Union' on Sunday. 'And that's certainly something the president supports.' Psaki said the allegations 'are serious.'

    Things are going to be awkward in the CNN lunch room! CNN anchor Dana Bash confused her colleague Chris Cuomo with his brother, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, on-air Sunday while discussing the latest sexual harassment allegations against the politician. The chief political correspondent made the gaffe in reporting that the governor allegedly asked his former aide, Charlotte Bennett, 25, inappropriate questions and made comments that she said left her feeling like he “wanted to sleep with me.” “The New York Times is reporting last night a second allegation of sexual harassment against New York Governor Chris Cuomo,” Bash said...

Well, here in the State of Michigan, one Michiganian ( Fact Check: Hey Michigan, You Are NOT a Michigander.) is asking how our Governor has handled this. Enter, Charlie LeDuff. LeDuff is a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and currently, the host of the No Bullshit News Hour heard over on the Red Shovel Network here in the Detroit...

    There’s a reason that Gov. Cuomo, Emmy-winning TV star and best-selling leader of the fight against the coronavirus, has abruptly gone dark. Actually, there are a few reasons. The fatal moment, politically speaking, probably wasn’t Cuomo’s decision last March — when it looked like the hospital system here could collapse like it had in Italy — to require nursing homes to take medically stable patients back in from hospitals without testing them for COVID and to give both nursing homes and hospitals a legal shield. It’s his refusal, nearly a year later, to acknowledge the literally fatal consequences of that...

    New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand appears to be giving Gov. Andrew Cuomo a long leash on the sexual harassment allegations leveled against him by a former aide — despite once leading the charge that led to then-Sen. Al Franken’s resignation over similar claims. “I have not read her allegations or her post, her Medium post,” Gillibrand told reporters on a call Thursday afternoon — a day after Cuomo accuser Lindsey Boylan came forward igniting widespread media coverage. “But as I said, everyone has a right to be able to come forward, speak their truth, and be heard. And that’s true...

    Gov. Andrew Cuomo was set to be the primary honoree at the LGBT Bar of New York’s 2021 gala but when news broke of allegations he sexually harassed a former aide, he was scrubbed from the event. Early Wednesday, a few hours before a Medium post on the alleged harassment was published, the LGBT Bar of New York sent an email announcing Cuomo as this year’s “Community Vision Award Recipient.” “For decades, the LGBT Bar Association Foundation of Greater New York, LeGaL, has bestowed the Community Vision Award upon individuals or organizations with a distinguished record of service to the...

    They’re not silent anymore: an increasingly vocal chorus of critics on both sides of the political aisle slammed Gov. Cuomo Saturday as news spread that a second former aide has accused him of sexual harassment. Everyone from familiar GOP foes to his own second in command spoke up in favor of an independent investigation after Charlotte Bennett, 25, came forward to The New York Times to describe Cuomo’s allegedly creepy behavior. At least one state senator didn’t mince words. “@NYGovCuomo, you are a monster, and it is time for you to go. Now,” wrote state Sen. Alessandra Biaggi, a Democrat...

    Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s love life has been rocky, and sometimes cringe-worthy, for years — since well before a second former aide accused him of sexual harassment on the job on Feb. 27. Briefly the hearthrob of some swooning liberals — who called themselves “Cuomosexuals” at the height of the governor’s daily COVID-19 briefings last year — Cuomo, 63, has made no secret that he’s on the prowl after a very public breakup in 2019. One of those Cuomosexuals was comedian Chelsea Handler.

    A second woman has accused Gov. Andrew Cuomo of sexual harassment, according to a new report. Charlotte Bennett, a 25-year-old former aide to Cuomo, told The New York Times that the governor asked her inappropriate personal questions, told her he was open to relationships with women in their 20s, and left her feeling that he “wanted to sleep with me.” Bennett, who worked as an executive assistant and health-policy adviser, told the Times the interactions took place in the spring, as the coronavirus pandemic flared. Cuomo, 63, never made any physical advances, she said.

    After snubbing Tara Reade, the woman who made a very credible sexual assault allegation against His Fraudulency Joe Biden, the left-wing Times Up organization has decided to turn on Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D-NY) in calling for an investigation of the credible sexual misconduct allegations made against the disgraced governor by a former staffer. Earlier this week, Lindsey Boylan, Cuomo’s deputy secretary for economic development for a little more than three years, starting in March of 2015, added troubling details to her December 2020 allegation that Cuomo “sexually harassed me for years.” The details include allegations of outright harassment and a...

    Filmmaker and journalist Morgan Pehme published an op-ed accusing the Cuomo administration of terrorizing him for trying to run a story that exposed the New York governor for having distorted the truth. The accusations come as one state lawmaker has similarly accused the governor of making harassing phone calls threatening his career. Pehme’s column, published in the New York Post, accuses Cuomo’s secretary Melissa DeRosa of “threatening to destroy me” fur running a negative story back in 2014. The former editor of City & State, a New York politics magazine, charges that while DeRosa was the one making the call,...
