New York Governor, Andrew Cuomo has been accused by a woman for sexual harassment and inappropriate behaviour.
According to a report, the official inappropriately touched her at his official residence last year.
A newspaper in the state capital of Albany where the New York legislature is based, The Times Union disclosed that the allegation had been made by an unidentified employee of the governor.
The newspaper said, she did not file a complaint, but her allegations were forwarded to the governor’s legal department and the state attorney general’s office.
According to Aljazeera, The newest allegation has come as state Attorney General Letitia James is investigating the prominent governor’s conduct.
After several accusations were recorded, Cuomo on Tuesday said he is “not aware” of the most recent accusation, but again said he would not immediately resign.
The 63-year-old Democrat repeated he would await the results of the investigation before taking further steps.
Cuomo who made comments on the issue said, “I never touched anyone inappropriately. As I said last week, I never made any inappropriate advances. As I said last week, no one ever told me at the time that I made them feel uncomfortable,”
“Let the investigation get the facts and we’ll take it from there,” said Cuomo.
