ALBANY, N.Y. — A woman who met New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo for the primary time at a marriage has accused him of making an inappropriate advance, according to the New York Times.
Anna Ruch, 33, informed the Occasions that the governor — who’s below investigation by state Legal professional Normal Tish James’ workplace for alleged harassment of two former aides — positioned his hand on her again. The governor then put his arms on her cheeks and requested to kiss her after she eliminated his hand.
The Occasions account is accompanied by a photograph of the governor holding Ruch’s face. She informed the Occasions she felt “uncomfortable and embarrassed.”
Ruch was not a state worker. However the undesirable advance from the governor, 63, is prone to escalate requires his resignation.
Ruch stated she was so disturbed by the encounter that she needed to ask a pal who witnessed it whether or not his lips had touched her as she pulled away. The pal stated the governor had kissed her on the cheek.
“I didn’t have a selection in that matter,” Ruch informed the Occasions. “I didn’t have a selection in his bodily dominance over me at that second. And that’s what infuriates me.”
