As dozens of elected officials called for his resignation, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) denied the sexual harassment allegations against him, which were corroborated in a probe led by the state attorney general.
Said Cuomo: “I never touch anyone inappropriately or made inappropriate sexual advances. I am 63 years old. I live my entire adult life in public view. That’s just not who I am.”
State Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie (D) put out a statement that called the details of the investigation “gut-wrenching” and concluded: “We will have more to say in the very near future.”
Meanwhile, all 19 of New York’s Democratic U.S. House members called on Cuomo to resign.
