A woman claiming to be a former team member to New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has levied more allegations of sexual harassment against the governor, calling the improvements”calculated.”
The Times Union published a meeting with the girl on Wednesday, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, detailing her experiences with the juvenile in his mansion.
The woman told the Times Union that the governor had groomed her while in his mansion in what she described as a”pattern” of behavior that ranged from”tight hugs” into”kisses on the cheek.”
The staffer remembered how in November, @NYGovCuomo called her from the Capitol into the executive mansion.
She stated that when she arrived in Cuomo’s office, he rose from his desk and hugged her in a way that”wasn’t just a hug.” https://t.co/3VP1qWxvDr

“Sometimes he would pull my whole body close to him. I remember purposely, like, taking my pelvis and pulling away. … I knew what he was doing.” The anonymous girl said during the meeting.
The girl stated that the governor would ask probing and improper questions, which she stated only intensified in late 2019.
She also recanted an adventure when the two shot a selfie in his office.
“As the phone is up I feel him, like, not just sliding his hands, he’s like rubbing my butt cheek, but not saying anything. That was the first blatant move.” The girl told the Times Union. (RELATED:’Highly Improper’: Cuomo Interfering With Sexual Harassment Probe, Victim’s Lawyer Says)
The governor then warned the girl, according to the Times Union, to not”tell a soul or tell anyone” about the interaction.
