New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has been charged with a sex crime.
According to The Washington Free Beacon:
NEW YORK (Reuters) — A criminal complaint charging former New York governor Andrew Cuomo (D.) with a misdemeanor sex offense has been filed in a court in Albany, the state’s capital, a spokesman for the New York state courts said on Thursday.
“As this is a sex crime, a redacted complaint will be available shortly,” the spokesman, Lucian Chalfen, said in an emailed statement.
A copy of the complaint posted online by NBC’s affiliate station in New York said Cuomo engaged in the misdemeanor offense of “forcible touching” on Dec. 7, 2020, at the governor’s executive mansion by placing “his hand under the blouse shirt of the victim … and onto her intimate body part.”
The complaint goes on to say that Cuomo groped the woman’s breast “for purposes of degrading and gratifying his sexual desires,” but the name of the alleged victim has been redacted.
The New York Post has reported as of this article that Cuomo will be arrested and charged with groping the former aide.
