We see it all the time… one person comes forward with an accusation and the floodgates open.
That is exactly what we are seeing right now in New York.
Only days after a former staffer came forward to accuse Governor Cuomo of sexual harassment, a second alleged victim has just spoken up.
The latest allegations have been made by Charlotte Bennett.
Bennett was reportedly an executive assistant and health policy adviser in the Cuomo administration who left his administration in November.
According to the report, Cuomo had asked Bennett “questions about her sex life, whether she was monogamous in her relationships and if she had ever had sex with older men.”
Bennett described her interactions with Cuomo in the New York Times, saying that she had interpreted his comments “as clear overtures to a sexual relationship.”
She stated that Cuomo never touched her, but his message was “unmistakable to her.”
Bennett stated, “I understood that the governor wanted to sleep with me, and felt horribly uncomfortable and scared.
“And was wondering how I was going to get out of it and assumed it was the end of my job.”
Bennett further revealed that she had told Cuomo’s chief of staff Jill DesRosiers about the incident within a week of the incident.
She further claimed that she issued a statement to Cuomo’s special counsel Judith Mogul.
After Bennett’s statement went public, Cuomo once again issued a denial.
In a formal statement that was issued to the New York Times, Cuomo stated, “When she came to me and opened up about being a sexual assault survivor and how it shaped her and her ongoing efforts to create an organization that empowered her voice to help other survivors, I tried to be supportive and helpful.
“Ms. Bennett’s initial impression was right: I was trying to be a mentor to her. I never made advances toward Ms. Bennett nor did I ever intend to act in any way that was inappropriate.
“The last thing I would ever have wanted was to make her feel any of the things that are being reported.”
While Biden has yet to formally address the issue personally, it does seem as though many Democrats are ready to throw Cuomo under the bus.
Rep. Nunes (R-CA) issued his thoughts on this during a recent Fox News interview, stating that he believes this may be happening to eliminate competition against Kamala Harris for the 2024 election.
