( )Cuomo has denied allegations detailed by Attorney General Letitia James in a report last year, though the former Democratic governor resigned in August despite the Nassau County District Attorney’s Office deckling to seek charges against him over the report.”Our exhaustive investigation found the allegations credible, deeply troubling, but not criminal under New York law,” Nassau DA Joyce Smith said last year.A total of 11 women claimed they were sexually harassed or mistreated by Cuomo in the report, with the state trooper describing interactions with Cuomo while assigned to his security detail as “offensive and uncomfortable.”
