A third woman has come forward and accused New York Governor Andrew Cuomo of sexual harassment.
The accuser, 33-year-old Anna Ruch, said she was “uncomfortable and embarrassed” after Cuomo grabbed her face and kissed her at a 2019 wedding.
“He said, ‘Can I kiss you?’” Anna Ruch told The New York Times.
“I was so confused and shocked and embarrassed,” she said.
A photo of Cuomo putting his hands on Anna Ruch’s face at a wedding was posted to Twitter:
Anna Ruch’s allegation comes after two former New York state aides accused 63-year-old Cuomo of sexual harassment.
On Saturday a second former aide stepped forward and accused New York Governor Andrew Cuomo of sexual harassment.
This prompted calls from fellow Democrats for the embattled Governor to resign.
In his defense Cuomo said the comments to the young aide were “good-natured” and “misinterpreted.”
Democrat state leaders are very upset over the sexual abuse allegations but not so much about the thousands of seniors that died in the state from coronavirus due to his insane nursing home policies.

On Monday New York State Attorney General Letitia James announced she received the letter she needed to start an investigation of Governor Cuomo over the sexual harassment charges.
