A New York State Trooper has accused former New York Governor Andrew Cuomo of sexual harassment.
The unidentified trooper alleges Cuomo kissed her on the cheek and “placed the palm of his hand on her belly button and slid it across her waist to her right hip”, according to the Washington Examiner.
Cuomo also asked the trooper “personal questions” while she was on duty.
“Cuomo touched the trooper inappropriately, in one instance “plac[ing] a finger on Trooper 1’s neck and [running] it slowly down her spine to the middle of her back,” the filing alleges.
“‘Trooper 1 felt violated as the Governor intentionally touched her in intimate locations between her breasts and vagina,” the lawsuit says.'”

The filing also names Melissa DeRosa, a onetime top Cuomo aide, as a defendant, stating she “was specifically involved in hiding the Governor’s behavior.”
