Cuomo: I Won’t “Be Distracted” Despite Sexual Harassment Findings
Governor Andrew Cuomo wants to focus on doing his job despite a state attorney general's report indicating he sexually harassed several women.
Cuomo spoke on Tuesday afternoon, shortly after Attorney General Letitia James released the conclusions of an investigation into allegation made against the governor.
The governor said he "never touched anyone inappropriately or made inappropriate sexual advances."
Amid increasing calls for his resignation, Cuomo made it clear he does not intend to step down. He said he "will not be distracted" from doing his job as governor.
The governor maintained that "the facts are much different than what has been portrayed."
The attorney general said the investigation determined Cuomo had groped, kissed and hugged women. She said the governor "engaged in conduct constituting sexual harassment under federal and New York State law."
