Hillary Clinton gave a statement regarding allegations of sexual assault that have been waged against Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D).
“These stories are difficult to read, and the allegations brought forth raise serious questions that the women who have come forward and all New Yorkers deserve answers to,” Clinton said in the statement.
“I’m glad to see that there will be a full, independent, and thorough investigation,” she added.
Three former aides of Cuomo, all three young beautiful women went public with accusations of unwanted sexual advances from Cuomo.
“To be clear I never inappropriately touched anybody and I never propositioned anybody and I never intended to make anyone feel uncomfortable,” Cuomo said.
“I now understand that my interactions may have been insensitive or too personal and that some of my comments, given my position, made others feel in ways I never intended. I acknowledge some of the things I have said have been misinterpreted as an unwanted flirtation. To the extent anyone felt that way, I am truly sorry about that.”
“I never made advances toward Ms. Bennett nor did I ever intend to act in any way that was inappropriate,” Cuomo added. “The last thing I would ever have wanted was to make her feel any of the things that are being reported.”
“I ask all New Yorkers to await the findings of the review so that they know the facts before making any judgements,” Cuomo said. “I will have no further comment until the review has concluded.”
