Cuomo engaged in sexual harassment and wasn’t transparent about nursing home deaths, probe finds

By Brendan Morrow The Week

A new report from New York’s State Assembly has found there is “overwhelming evidence” that former Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) engaged in sexual harassment.

The Assembly Judiciary Committee on Monday released a 46-page report following an eight-month impeachment investigation into the former governor, who resigned in August following allegations of sexual harassment, The New York Times reports. It backed up a previous report from New York’s attorney general that found Cuomo sexually harassed multiple women in office and prompted him to step down.

“We conclude that there is overwhelming evidence that the former governor engaged in sexual harassment,” the new report says, noting the investigation included interviews with witnesses and a review of “tens of thousands of documents.”
