McGrath is the eighth woman to come forward with allegations of sexual harassment or inappropriate behavior against Gov. Cuomo.
She has since lawyered up and is being represented by Mariann Wang.
What are the accusations against Andrew Cuomo?
McGrath claims that Cuomo “would ogle her body, remark on her looks, and make suggestive comments to her and another executive aide.”
The most grievous accusation against the governor came from another aide currently working for Gov. Cuomo who accused him of groping her breast in the Executive Mansion.
The report was made public on March 10 in a report published by The Times Union.
McGrath claims that her co-worker described the encounter in detail to her once it was made public.
McGrath told The New York Times that the governor had created an unusual work triangle with her and her friend, the co-worker he allegedly groped, blending a professional relationship with unwanted attention over the last three years.
Gov. Cuomo has denied any wrongdoing, suggesting that his actions and relationships with employees may have been misinterpreted.
