Cuomo apologized several times for making women feel uncomfortable. He didn’t say a word about the nursing home scandal.
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo appeared for a Zoom press conference today, his first since allegations that he sexually harassed multiple women surfaced. In the press conference, Cuomo apologized profusely to the women who he admits he made feel uncomfortable, and begged New Yorkers not to form an opinion until they receive more information. Only one journalist referenced the nursing home scandal, in which Cuomo covered up the number of elderly who died in New York nursing homes as a result of his COVID-19 policies, and Cuomo did not answer a single question on the subject.
“As you probably know, the Attorney General is doing an independent review, and I will cooperate with that review. The lawyers say I shouldn’t say anything when you have a pending review until the review is over. I understand that, I’m a lawyer too,” said Cuomo. “First, I fully support a woman’s right to come forward, and I think it should be encouraged in every way. I now understand that I acted in a way that made people feel unco,fortable. It was unintentional, and I truly and deeply apologize for it. I feel awful about it and frankly I am embarrassed by it. And that’s not easy to say, but that’s the truth.”
While Cuomo acknowledged he made women feel uncomfortable, he also claims “I never touched anyone inappropriately. I never knew at the time that I was making anyone feel uncomfortable.”
