(StrictlyNews.com) What is it about the Cuomo men? Are they all sexual abusers? It certainly seems that might be the case given these new allegations.
After all, former Governor Andrew Cuomo has been charged with sexual harassment and even sexual assault by quite a few women that worked with or around him. And now, it appears that he may not be the only man in the Cuomo family who has trouble keeping his hands to himself when in the presence of women.
Today, the news has broken that Andrew Cuomo’s brother, the infamous CNN anchorman Chris Cuomo, has been charged with sexual harassment by a former producer at ABC. Not only a former producer – an executive producer who was at one time Cuomo’s boss.
To put a finer point on the breaking report, the charge is that Chris Cuomo sexually harassed former ABC executive producer Shelley Ross at a party for a coworker back in 2005.
In another publication, Ross is quoted as saying, “I was at the party with my husband, who sat behind me on an ottoman sipping his Diet Coke as I spoke with work friends. When Mr. Cuomo entered the Upper West Side bar, he walked toward me and greeted me with a strong bear hug while lowering one hand to firmly grab and squeeze the cheek of my buttock.”
As for witnesses – after all, it was 16 years ago – Ross claims her husband witnessed what took place and that they then exited the party.
Many experts believe what Cuomo is alleged to have done would actually count as sexual assault, not just sexual harassment.
We’ll have to wait and see if the charges get more serious if criminal charges arise, and if other women step forward with more allegations against Cuomo.
