Oyogist.com has learnt that present New York governor, Andrew Cuomo has denied his alleged involvement in a sexual harassment case labelled against him.
In a New York Times exclusive, Charlotte Bennett, an executive assistant to the Governor, alleged that Cuomo “asked her questions about her sex life, whether she was monogamous in her relationships and if she had ever had sex with older men.
“Bennett alleges the governor’s “message” towards her was “unmistakable to her.””I understood that the governor wanted to sleep with me, and felt horribly uncomfortable and scared,” Bennett told the Times.
“I was wandering how I was going to get out of it and assumed it was the end of my job, she said further.
Governor Cuomo has now responded to the reports, as he revealed that he was only trying to be of help to her.
The Governor said;
“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.”
