Earlier, two former subordinates of Andrew Cuomo – Charlotte Bennett and Lindsey Boylan – came forward with allegations that he sexually harassed them.
According to 33-year-old Anna Ruch, who leads the publication, the incident occurred in September 2019 at the wedding of her friends, where Cuomo was also present. The governor of New York, according to the woman, approached her and, after an exchange of a couple of phrases, took her by the waist. After encountering resistance from the Ruch, Cuomo allegedly put his hands on her face and attempted to kiss her on the lips, in response to which the woman declined, offering the governor her cheek.
Ruch claims that the governor’s actions made her feel “uncomfortable and confused.” According to The New York Times, Cuomo’s inappropriate behavior is confirmed by messages that Ruch sent later that day to her friends.
