New York Governor Andrew Cuomo is under investigation for covering up the number of nursing home deaths that resulted from his mishandling of the COVID-19 crisis.
Meanwhile, he’s also facing multiple allegations of sexual harassment.
And now Andrew Cuomo is worried sick after the release of this one picture from one of his accusers.
Anna Ruch recently stepped forward and accused Governor Andrew Cuomo of sexually harassing her at a wedding in 2019, making her the third woman to come forward in recent weeks.
Ruch told The New York Times:
She recalled Mr. Cuomo moving his hand to the small of her back — exposed in an open-back dress — within moments of their being introduced and shaking hands at the reception.
Ms. Ruch said that touch, on her bare skin, discomfited her.
“I promptly removed his hand with my hand, which I would have thought was a clear enough indicator that I was not wanting him to touch me,” she said.
Instead, Ms. Ruch said, Mr. Cuomo called her “aggressive” and placed his hands on her cheeks.
“He said, ‘Can I kiss you?’” Ms. Ruch said. “I felt so uncomfortable and embarrassed when really he is the one who should have been embarrassed.”
But unlike Cuomo’s other accusers, Ruch provided the New York Times with a photograph from the wedding in 2019 showing Andrew Cuomo with his hands touching her neck in inappropriate ways.

In fact, after the release of this new photograph, New York Congresswoman Kathleen Rice came forward and called for Cuomo to resign.
“The time has come. The Governor must resign,” Rice wrote on social media.
Of course, Governor Cuomo is denying the accusations.
He even tried apologizing over the weekend, but that was before Ruch came forward with her story and the photographic evidence to back it up.
