Cuomo ‘Eager’ for Facts to Come Out in New York AG Misconduct Probe

Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “Cuomo ‘Eager’ for Facts to Come Out in New York AG Misconduct Probe” – below is their description.

In his first televised news conference since being questioned by investigators with the New York Attorney General’s office about sexual harassment and misconduct allegations, Gov. Andrew Cuomo Monday said he “eager to get the facts to the people of this state.”

Cuomo sat down for an interviewed over the weekend with investigators.

Saturday’s interview signals that investigators are nearly done with their work, which has included interviews with the governor’s accusers, though they may need some time to tie up loose ends before a report is issued.

Several women have accused Cuomo, a Democrat, of unwanted kisses, touches and groping and inappropriate sexual remarks.

Cuomo initially apologized and said that he “learned an important lesson” about his behavior around women, though he’s since denied that he did anything wrong and questioned the motivations of accusers and fellow Democrats who’ve called for his resignation.

Cuomo, in office since 2011, has rebuffed calls to step aside over the allegations.

Cuomo’s popularity has dipped this year: About 62% of voters said Cuomo should resign or not seek re-election in a late June poll by Siena College.

Still, supporters point out that 61% of Democrats in that poll said they have a favorable opinion of him.

The governor insisted New Yorkers will be “shocked” by how the investigation has been handled.

Cuomo is also facing an impeachment inquiry in the state assembly.
