New York Governor Andrew Cuomo on Wednesday responded to President Joe Biden’s remarks regarding the sexual assault allegations against him.

Asked in an interview with ABC News whether Cuomo should step down if the investigation finds the allegations are true, Biden said: “Yes. I think he’ll probably end up being prosecuted, too.”

In response to Biden’s comments, Cuomo said “the president said there should be a review. I agree with him on that.”

Biden stopped short of asking Cuomo to resign immediately, noting that an investigation to determine the veracity of the sexual assault allegations is underway.

“There should be an investigation to determine whether what she says is true,” Biden added. “That’s what’s going on now.”

The 63-year-old Cuomo faces allegations of sexual harassment and misconduct from at least seven women, including former aides, and is under pressure from disclosures that his administration withheld the number of nursing home residents killed in New York state by COVID-19.

The White House said on Monday that Biden finds the developments regarding allegations of sexual misconduct against Cuomo to be troubling, and the investigation into them should be quick and thorough.

New York state Attorney General Letitia James last week named a team of outside lawyers, one of them a former federal prosecutor, to lead an investigation into accusations against Cuomo.

New York’s two U.S. senators, Chuck Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand, last week urged Cuomo—a fellow Democrat—to resign, saying he had “lost the confidence” of New Yorkers.

New Cuomo accuser alleges she was forcibly kissed, claims to have evidence

The woman alleges governor kissed her in “a highly sexual manner.”

Aninth woman has come forward with allegations of sexual misconduct against New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, alleging that the Democrat grabbed her face and kissed her without her consent.

But this allegation is different: The woman, Sherry Vill, a 55-year-old married mother of three, has photographic evidence.

Vill says the incident occurred while the governor was “touring her flood-damaged home in 2017 – saying he did so in a ‘highly sexual manner,’ ” The New York Post reported.

In a press conference Monday, Vill was accompanied by her lawyer, Gloria Allred, who displayed a photo of the kiss.

Vill, whose home was damaged by the flood, recounted the incident, saying she invited Cuomo in.

“That’s when the governor looked at me, approached me, took my hand and pulled me to him,” Vill said. “He leaned down over me and kissed my cheek. I was holding my small dog in my arms in my arms and I thought he was going to pet my dog. But instead he went to squeeze between the dog … and kiss me on the other cheek in what I felt was a highly sexual manner.”

Cuomo sought to explain himself, she said. “He said, ‘That’s what Italians do, kiss both cheeks,’ “Vill said. “I felt shocked, and didn’t understand what had just happened. But I knew I felt embarrassed and weird about the kissing. I am Italian, and in my family, family members kiss. Strangers do not kiss.”

On his way out, Cuomo “”stopped, he turned to me and said, ‘You are beautiful,’ ” Vill said.

Earlier this month, Anna Ruch, a former Biden 2020 campaign worker, told The New York Times that the governor made unwanted sexual advances toward her after they met at a wedding in New York City in 2019.

She also accused Cuomo, 63, of kissing her without her permission, even as she tried to pull away. Ruch said the encounter left her “confused and shocked and embarrassed.”

Another accuser, Charlotte Bennett, a former Cuomo aide, alleges that the governor inquired about her sex life and asked her whether she would be amenable to a relationship with an older man.

And another former aide, Lindsey Boylan, said Cuomo “made inappropriate comments about her appearance, kissed her without her consent at the end of a meeting and once suggested they play strip poker while aboard his state-owned jet,” the Associated Press reported.

Five more women have made similar allegations. The eighth woman to accuse Cuomo said the governor groped her last year at the Executive Mansion after she had called there to do some work. She said she was alone with the governor in the mansion when he “closed the door and allegedly reached under her blouse and began to fondle her,” a source told the Albany Times Union.

‘I will not resign’: Cuomo responds to calls step down over sexual misconduct claims

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo doubled down on defending himself Friday afternoon, saying, despite mounting calls from state and national lawmakers to leave office over sexual misconduct allegations, “I will not resign.”

The three-term Democrat was targeted in what appeared to be a coordinated strike by 12 members of the New York Congressional delegation who simultaneously called for his resignation on Friday.

He brushed aside that demand, saying during a Friday teleconference that he “did not do what has been alleged” by multiple women.

“Women have the right to come forward and be heard, and I encourage that,” Cuomo said. “But I also want to be clear: There is still a question of the truth. I did not do what has been alleged.”

Cuomo bashed politicians, including Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Grace Meng, Mondaire Jones, Rep. Jerry Nadler and Jamaal Bowman, who shared statements supporting that he leave office, calling the move “reckless” and a bow to “cancel culture” without knowing the facts.

He urged the public to wait for the result of the state attorney general’s investigation and the state Assembly’s impeachment investigation before casting judgement.

“I have been in the public eye my entire life. My entire life, I have been under public scrutiny — since I was 23 years old and ran my father’s campaign. New Yorkers know me. Wait for the facts,” Cuomo said. “An opinion without facts is irresponsible.”

So far, New York Congress members who have called for his resignation include Adriano Espaillat, Nydia Velazquez, Carolyn Maloney, Yvette Clark, Antonio Delgado and Kathleen Rice.

At least six women, including several who previously worked for the governor, have accused Cuomo of inappropriate behavior and unwanted advances.

They are: Lindsey Boylan, 36; Charlotte Bennett, 25; Anna Ruch, 33; Karen Hinton; Ana Liss; and a sixth unknown woman whose account was published by the Albany Times-Union this week.

Cuomo said Friday he would not speculate on the motives of his accusers, but he said “a lot of people allege a lot of things for a lot of reasons.”

He specifically addressed the sixth accuser, saying, “the last allegation is not true,” referring to the unnamed woman. According to the paper, the woman was summoned to the executive mansion late last year under the guise of a telephone issue and Cuomo then allegedly groped her.

“I have not had a sexual relationship that was inappropriate, period,” Cuomo said.
