There’s "overwhelming evidence" that former New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo engaged in sexual harassment. The impeachment investigation also found that Cuomo used state employees to work on his memoir and "was not fully transparent regarding the number of nursing home residents who died as a result of COVID-19," the New York Times reports. The investigation was handled by Davis Polk & Wardwell LLP, a Manhattan law firm hired by the Assembly Judiciary Committee. According to the report, at least one official mentioned that working on American Crisis: Leadership Lessons from the COVID-19 Pandemic interfered with their real job, Fox News reports. That book earned Cuomo more than $5 million, per the Times.
Cuomo has consistently denied touching anyone inappropriately or forcing employees to work on his book, and his spokesman, Richard Azzopardi said the fact that the investigators didn’t interview the former governor made for a "one-sided report." Investigators pored over 600,000 pages of documents and reviewed the New York Attorney General’s investigation, too. Cuomo provided written responses to investigators, though, NPR reports. The report said "nothing in his voluminous submissions can overcome the overwhelming evidence of his misconduct," per the Times. Cuomo resigned in August instead of facing an impeachment trial.
