Watch Cuomo ‘sexual harassment’ accuser speak publicly for the first time

A woman who has accused New York Governor Andrew Cuomo of sexual harassment has spoken publicly for the first time in a televised interview.

Brittany Commisso is one of 11 women referenced in a report from New York State Attorney General Letitia James that alleges Cuomo sexually harassed multiple women and violated state and federal law.

Commisso, a former executive assistant, claims that in 2019 and 2020 Cuomo ‘engaged in close and intimate hugs’ on multiple occasions, including one incident when he ‘reached under her blouse and grabbed her breast’.

During another incident, while she took a selfie, she said Cuomo ‘put his hand on and then rubbed and grabbed her butt’.

“What he did to me was a crime,” Commisso told CBS This Morning and the Times Union.

Cuomo has denied any wrongdoing.
