Probe finds proof of misconduct by NY ex-Guv

Albany (USA), November 22

A legislative investigation released Monday found “overwhelming evidence” that former Governor Andrew Cuomo engaged in sexual harassment and ordered state workers to help produce his book during work hours.

The report also found that Cuomo's executive chamber “substantially revised” a state report to exclude deaths of nursing home residents at hospitals to boost Cuomo's reputation. In March, the Assembly Judiciary Committee hired a Manhattan law firm, Davis Polk & Wardwell, to investigate whether there were grounds to impeach Cuomo. A Democrat, he resigned in August to avoid a likely impeachment trial in the wake of another investigation that found he sexually harassed at least 11 women. — AP
