The walls are quickly closing in on Gov. Andrew Cuomo. The Westchester County District Attorney’s Office announced Wednesday they would conduct an investigation into sexual harassment allegations, following the New York Attorney General’s bombshell report that found Cuomo violated state and federal laws by sexually harassing several women. NBC New York obtained a letter from Westchester D.A. Mimi Rocah to the Attorney General’s office, requesting materials from their investigation related to allegations that Cuomo harassed a state trooper. “I believe it is appropriate for my Office to conduct a further inquiry to determine if any of the reported conduct that is alleged to have occurred in Westchester County is criminal in nature,” wrote Rocah.
Manhattan District Attorney Cy Vance’s office also moved to launch a probe on Wednesday, becoming the third DA to do so after the Albany said it was looking into a groping allegation. “When our office learned yesterday that the Attorney General’s investigation of the Governor’s conduct was complete, our office contacted the A.G.’s Office to begin requesting investigative materials in their possession pertaining to incidents that occurred in Manhattan,” wrote a Manhattan D.A. spokesperson.
Cuomo bitterly denied the allegations and seemed to pour fuel on the fire by using a series of photos of him kissing people to justify his behavior. President Biden called for Cuomo to resign on Tuesday.
