ALBANY, N.Y. (WHEC) — New York State Troopers that were assigned to protect Governor Andrew Cuomo are being interviewed by investigators from the Attorney General's Office as part of the sexual harassment probe.
According to the Albany Times Union, AG investigators are interviewing current and former members of the governor's Protective Services Unit to gather details from their observations of the Executive Chamber's "culture," and the manner in which women have been treated or interacted with the governor and his staff.
Current and former troopers on protective detail have been required to sign non-disclosure agreements. However, non-disclosure agreements do not exempt troopers from their duties as police officers if they have witnessed anything criminal or unethical.
Multiple women have accused the governor of inappropriate behavior, including unwanted touching and unwelcome sexual advances.
