District Attorneys in both Manhattan and Westchester reportedly opened new criminal probes into Democrat Governor Andrew Cuomo after a bombshell report indicated that Cuomo had indeed harassed multiple women and broke state and federal laws in the process.
As The New York Post reports:
Prosecutors in New York City and Westchester County piled on Monday and revealed that they’ve launched criminal investigations into sexual harassment allegations made against Gov. Andrew Cuomo in the explosive report released by state Attorney General Letitia James.
The probes will apparently target Cuomo’s behavior at his satellite office in Manhattan and his former home in Mount Kisco where he lived with his then-girlfriend, celebrity chef Sandra Lee.
A spokesman for outgoing Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance said, “When our office learned yesterday that the Attorney General’s investigation of the Governor’s conduct was complete, our office contacted the Attorney General’s Office to begin requesting investigative materials in their possession pertaining to incidents that occurred in Manhattan.”
Westchester DA Mimi Rocah also issued a statement saying, “As some of the Governor’s conduct described in the report occurred in Westchester County, we have formally requested investigative materials obtained by the AG’s Office.”
The criminal probes come in the wake of mass calls for Cuomo to resign, which included President Biden himself.
