Records support timeline given by alleged Cuomo victim
ALBANY, N.Y. (WHEC) — Subpeonaed records just released support the timeline given by an accuser of ex-New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, who says she was groped at the governor’s mansion.
The records, outlined by the Albany Times Union, are a part of the state’s Assembly Judiciary Committee’s investigation into Cuomo.
The records found that Brittany Commisso, a former Cuomo staffer, had visited the executive mansion in early December of 2020. She claims that was the day the governor groped her after she had assisted him with a minor issue involving his mobile phone.
She first came forward with the allegations back in August, just a day before Cuomo ultimately announced he would resign following a report released by State Attorney General Letitia James that found Cuomo sexually harassed at least 11 women.
Cuomo has said Commisso is lying and has denied that he touched or hugged her in a sexually aggressive manner. Additionally, Cuomo’s lawyer has accused James of conducting a "one-sided" investigation, and of having a political conflict of interest.
Though, as was previously reported, the Assembly committee’s report is due in October and is expected to align with the findings outlined in the AG’s report.
