A third woman is now accusing New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo of unwanted sexual advances, alleging that he touched her in a way that made her feel uncomfortable.
Anna Ruch says that at a wedding in September 2019, Cuomo acted inappropriately toward her, according to a Monday report from the New York Times. With each new allegation, outcry against the Democratic governor grows. The New York attorney general announced on Monday that a special counsel will be appointed to investigate the claims.
Ruch, who is now 33, said Cuomo was making the rounds at the wedding when he came up to her and put his hand on her bare lower back. When she removed his hand, he allegedly called her “aggressive” and put his hands on her cheeks. Ruch says he asked if he could kiss her, and she pulled away in shock.
