Andrew Cuomo Refuses to Take Responsibility in Apology for Misconduct, Rejects Calls to Resign

HeadlineMar 04, 2021

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo apologized Wednesday in response to multiple accusations of sexual harassment and unwanted physical contact.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo: “I never touched anyone inappropriately. I never knew at the time that I was making anyone feel uncomfortable.”

Cuomo has now been accused of harassment by two former aides and unwanted sexual advances and touching by a third woman, but has rejected calls for his resignation. New York’s attorney general is overseeing an investigation into the allegations. Cuomo is also under fire for covering up thousands of COVID deaths in New York nursing homes.
