The former staffer who reported that New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo allegedly groped her in the governor’s mansion spoke with the Albany Times Union to detail her account.
“I remember him slamming (the door) so hard that I remember thinking to myself that I’m sure the staff is, like, ‘Is everything OK up there?’ He came right back and he pulled me close and all I remember is seeing his hand, his big hand. I remember looking down like, ‘Holy sh–,'” the unnamed former aide said.
At around half Cuomo’s age, the accuser was summoned to Cuomo’s residence in late November by Stephanie Benton, one of the governor’s executive assistants, according to the Times Union.
The former aide was called in to help Cuomo with an issue on his cell phone, which was reportedly a common request from the governor.
Once she entered the room, the former aide said Cuomo said very little and began approaching her.
“And that wasn’t just a hug,” she said. “He went for it and I kind of like was, ‘Oh, the door is right there.’ … I was mortified that a woman who works here is going to come in and see. … I was terrified of that happening, because that’s not who I am and that’s not what I’m here for.”
