A reporter asked Harris: “Do you have any comment on Governor Cuomo?”
Harris then walked away without answering the question.
Six women have accused Cuomo of sexually inappropriate behavior.
Cuomo denies the allegations.
Bennett alleged that Cuomo sexually propositioned her, telling her he was “lonely” and he wanted a girlfriend and was willing to sleep with a younger woman.
He allegedly reached under a female aide’s blouse and fondled her after calling her to his private residence to fix his phone, according to a report on Wednesday.
The aide claims that Cuomo summoned her to the Executive Mansion in Albany in late 2020 and aggressively groped her in a sexual way, according to The Times Union.
A former press aide of Cuomo, 62-year-old Karen Hinton, alleged the governor summoned her to his “dimly-lit” hotel room and hugged her after a work event about 21 years ago, The Washington Post reported.
Asked about the latest allegation, Cuomo said earlier this week: “First, I’m not aware of any other claim – as I said last week this is very simple… I never touched anyone inappropriately.
“As I said last week, I never made inappropriate advances. As I said last week, no ever told me at the time that I made them feel uncomfortable.”
He further explained that the attorney general announced independent investigators today, adding: “I’m going to respect that investigation.
“The attorney general will get the facts. Every woman will get the rights to come forward.”
Cuomo explained “there’s a spectrum of allegations,” ranging from capital crimes, physical violence, and minor allegations.
Cuomo’s representative Jack Stern issued a statement to The Sun on Saturday night on behalf of the governor’s senior adviser, Rich Azzopardi.
“Reporters and photographers have covered the governor for 14 years watching him kiss men and women and posing for pictures,” it read.
“At the public open-house mansion reception, there are hundreds of people, and he poses for hundreds of pictures. That’s what people in politics do.”
Protestors were arrested on Wednesday outside Cuomo’s office in the wake of mounting sexual harassment allegations against him.
Demonstrators blocked Third Avenue in Manhattan this afternoon chanting for Cuomo to “immediately resign.”
