The female aide who’s accused Gov. Andrew Cuomo of groping her broke her silence to provide a vivid account of the alleged incident — describing how he “pulled me close” and stuck his hand under her blouse.
In her first public interview, the unidentified woman told the Albany Times Union in an article published Wednesday that she was summoned to the Executive Mansion to help Cuomo with his cellphone on a weekday in November.
When she entered his second-floor office, she said, Cuomo came out from behind the desk and aggressively embraced her in what she described as an overtly sexual manner “that wasn’t just a hug.”
“He went for it and I kind of like was, ‘Oh, the door is right there,’” she said.
The woman said she quietly freaked out while considering how to respond to the powerful, three-term Democrat.
“I said, ‘You’re going to get us in trouble,’” she said.
“I didn’t know what else to say. … It was pretty much like ‘What are you doing?’ That’s when he slammed the door. He said, ‘I don’t care.’”
Although the sound of the door was loud enough that Cuomo’s staff most likely wondered what was going on, he wasn’t deterred, she said.
“He came right back and he pulled me close and all I remember is seeing his hand, his big hand,” she said.
“I remember looking down like, ‘Holy sh–.’”
Cuomo then reached under her blouse and grabbed one of her breasts over her bra, she said.
“I was just so confused and so taken aback by it…He never said anything, which was odd,” she said.
The allegations are the most serious made to date against Cuomo, who’s been accused of sexual harassment and other inappropriate behavior by a series of women, including current and former aides.
The Times Union said that it contacted Cuomo’s office about the woman’s allegations late Tuesday and that his lawyer, Rita Glavin, didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment Wednesday.
