ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — Now another accuser of Governor Cuomo has said she will not cooperate with the New York State Assembly Judiciary Committee's investigation into the governor.

In an interview with the New York Post, Ana Liss, a former aide to Cuomo and now a Monroe county official, said she can't "confidently participate" because of the lack of transparency and "the controversial ties" the law firm has to the governor.

The concerns surround the firm "Davis Polk and Wardwell", which is being retained by state lawmakers. Last week, the attorney of Charlotte Bennett, another accuser, raised the issue of a former employee of the firm being the husband of a State Supreme Court Chief Judge who would be a juror on the senate trial if the governor is impeached. 

Cuomo's first accuser, Lindsey Boylan already said she would not cooperate with the investigation, calling it a "sham.

Liss has already done an interview with the Attorney General Office's investigation, she's accused Cuomo of inappropriate behavior in the workplace while she was an aide from 2013 to 2015.

Members of the judiciary committee said Tuesday the investigation could take "months" and that there were assurances there are no conflicts of interest.
