In western New York, Republican U.S. Congressmember Tom Reed has apologized to a female lobbyist who accused him of unwanted sexual advances. Nicolette Davis says Congressmember Reed drunkenly rubbed her back, unhooked her bra and moved his hand to her thigh during a gathering at a Minneapolis bar in 2017. Reed said he would not seek reelection next year. He’s among elected officials who’ve called on Governor Cuomo to resign over sexual harassment claims, and said as recently as last month he was considering a run for governor in 2022.
