Third woman accuses New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, says he asked her to kiss her

A third woman has come forward to publicly accuse New York Gov. Cuomo of sexually harassing her – and there’s a photo to back it up.

Anna Ruch, who worked on the Biden campaign, said The New York Times that Cuomo put his hand on her bare lower back moments after being introduced to a in 2019.

“I quickly removed his hand with my hand, which I would have thought was a pretty clear indicator that I didn’t want him to touch me,” she told the newspaper.

According to her account, Cuomo called her “aggressive” and placed his hands on her cheeks.

He said, ‘Can I kiss you? “, Remembers Ruch.

“I was so confused, shocked and embarrassed,” Ruch told the Times, who said her account was corroborated by the friend and photographs showing the governor clutching her face.

“I looked away and had no words at the time.”

Ruch’s account adds a new dimension to the political crisis facing Cuomo.

In a statement on Sunday, he half-apologized for his behavior in a statement, saying women “misinterpreted” his “playful” jokes, which he said could be “too personal”.

But the calls for his resignation are increasing; a former ally, Rep. Kathleen Rice of Long Island, tweeted Monday night that he should step down. “The time is right,” she wrote, with a link to Ruch’s account.

Earlier today, Cuomo formally made the referral that will allow State Attorney General Tish James to investigate allegations of sexual harassment made by ex-aides Lindsey Boylan and Charlotte Bennett.
