ALBANY – New details about the latest allegation lodged against New York’s Governor allege he groped a female aide late last year.

The Albany Times Union reports a female staffer, who was not further identified by the newspaper, alleges Gov. Andrew Cuomo “reached under her blouse and began to fondle her” while they were alone in the governor’s mansion in late 2020.

The woman was reportedly asked to the mansion to help Cuomo with a technical issue on his cell phone.

In a statement by the Governor’s office Wednesday night, Cuomo denies the allegation.

“As I said yesterday, I have never done anything like this,” said Cuomo. “The details of this report are gut-wrenching. I am not going to speak to the specifics of this or any other allegation given the ongoing review, but I am confident in the result of the Attorney General’s report.”

The woman alleges the incident happened late last year and it was not the only time that Cuomo had touched her. She also claims Cuomo frequently engaged in flirtatious behavior toward her.

Six women have accused Cuomo of sexual harassment or improper conduct in recent weeks. State Attorney General Letitia James on Monday appointed two attorneys to lead the investigation into sexual harassment allegations against Cuomo.

Several state lawmakers, including those in his own party, have called on Cuomo to resign, which he said he will not do. Others have openly discussed articles of impeachment, though removing Cuomo via that route would require a mass number of democrats to get on board.
