A female member of Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s staff has become the sixth woman to accuse him of inappropriate conduct, according to a report Tuesday.
The woman told associates that Cuomo touched her inappropriately late last year inside the governor’s mansion after she was summoned there on official business, the Albany Times Union said.
The Times Union said it was withholding her name until she could be reached for comment.
The allegations reached a supervisor in the Executive Chamber this past weekend and they were reported to Cuomo’s counsel and the office of Attorney General Letitia James, the Times Union said.
On Monday, James announced the hiring of outside lawyers — including former acting Manhattan US Attorney Joon Kim — to investigate the mushrooming allegations of sexual harassment and other inappropriate behavior by Cuomo.
In a statement to the Times Union, Cuomo’s acting counsel, Beth Garvey, said, “All allegations that we learn of directly or indirectly are going promptly to the investigators appointed by the attorney general.”
