As if six weren’t enough, a seventh woman has come forward stating that Governor Andrew Cuomo inappropriately touched her at the Governor’s mansion and suggested in front of others that they were “going steady.”
New York Magazine reports today that, unlike the previous six women, a reporter was the target this time.
That reporter was 25 years old at the time of the incident.
In recent days Cuomo has contradicted himself by first denying any inappropriate touching, then blaming it on his Italian heritage by suggesting that they are a touchy-feely bunch. (Outrageous.)
At this rate, it will be no surprise if an eighth woman comes forward. The question is: how many sexual harassment allegations will be enough for the New York State Democratic Party to demand its own guv step down, or risk losing credibility on women’s issues forever?
