Things are not looking good for Andrew Cuomo.
The Empire State governor has been facing a multitude of scandals this year, stemming first from his decision to utilize New York’s nursing homes to deal with COVID-19 patient overflow, and then from his decision to try to cover that situation up.
This week, more trouble came as a former staffer accused him of persistent sexual harassment and degradation.
That latest flap has caught the attention of the NY Attorney General.
New York Attorney General Letitia James is reviewing a letter from state senators asking her office to investigate the sexual harassment allegations against New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, Fox News has learned.
Republican state Sens. Patricia Richie, Susan Serino, Pamela Helming, Daphne Jordan and Alexis Weik penned a letter to James’ office requesting a “formal investigation” into the allegations of “abusive, sexist and harassing behavior” of Cuomo toward his former aide, Lindsey Boylan.
The senators, in the letter, requested the “immediate appointment of a Special Prosecutor to conduct this investigation,” and called the allegations “potentially criminal in nature.”
“At a minimum, the seriousness of these allegations clearly warrant a comprehensive, immediate investigation by an independent special prosecutor,” they wrote.
A source from James’ office told Fox News that they are in receipt of the letter and are reviewing it.
Boylan’s accusations were harrowing, from being kissed on the mouth unwillingly to unwanted touching and suggestions of lewd activities.
