Former governor Andrew Cuomo, already facing legal consequences, is now confronting a lawsuit for sexual assault from his former executive assistant, Brittany Commisso. The legal action was initiated just before the Adult Survivors Act deadline, according to fillings.
Commisso claims that her former boss subjected her to degrading tasks, unwanted hugs, kisses, inappropriate touching of the buttocks, and forcible contact with her breast. As a married mother of one, she had joined the governor’s team in 2017 and had previously accused Cuomo of groping her within the Executive Mansion. This earlier accusation had resulted in a misdemeanor criminal complaint being filed against the disgraced former governor.
