BREAKING: Andrew Cuomo Sued By State Trooper for Sexual Harassment

On Thursday, former New York Governor Andrew Cuomo was sued by a state trooper on his security detail over sexual harassment claims, accusing Cuomo of violating her. The trooper also accused former aid to Cuomo, Melissa DeRosa of covering up the incident.

According to the lawsuit, the woman who is referred to as “Trooper 1″, claims “she felt violated as the Governor intentionally touched her in intimate locations between her breasts and vagina.”

“As Trooper 1 went ahead of the Governor to hold a door open for him, the Governor placed the palm of his hand on her belly button and slid it across her waist to her right hip, where her gun was holstered,” the complaint went on to say.

“As with his other victims, the governor used his physical proximity to Trooper 1 to touch her inappropriately,” the lawsuit claims.

Spokesman to Cuomo Rich Azzopardi released a statement through the Associated Press, stating: “Gov. Cuomo will fight every attempt at cheap cash extortions and is anxious to have the dirty politics stop — we look forward to justice in a court of law.”

The Daily Wire reports:

Cuomo told investigators that he would hug the female trooper hello, and that he “may have touched her shoulder,” according to the report. He said he didn’t remember additional touching.

“If I did, it was incidental, and I don’t remember doing that,” he said.

DeRosa, accused of helping to cover up the alleged incident, had previously blasted the trooper’s claims in a lengthy statement in November posted to Twitter.

DeRosa noted “it’s absolutely beyond the pale for this trooper, who by her own admission I barely knew — who has already attempted to extort me for money — to make these accusations based on false rumors and for them to be printed in a newspaper.”

“Not only is this ludicrous, it’s hurtful, and potentially actionable,” she continued.
