Hochul says she believes the women in sexual harassment claims against Cuomo

posted by Howard B. Owens in kathy hock, Andrew Cuomo, news.

Press release from Lt. Gov. Kathy Hochul:

Sexual harassment is unacceptable in any workplace, and certainly not in public service. The Attorney General’s investigation has documented repulsive and unlawful behavior by the Governor towards multiple women. I believe these brave women and admire their courage coming forward.

No one is above the law. Under the New York Constitution, the Assembly will now determine the next steps.

Because Lieutenant Governors stand next in the line of succession, it would not be appropriate to comment further on the process at this moment.
