Hillary Clinton Says That Sexual Harassment ‘Allegations Brought Forth’ Against Gov. Cuomo ‘Raise Serious Questions’

Earlier today, former Secretary of State and New York Democratic Senator Hillary Clinton released a statement regarding the mounting sexual harassment allegations against New York Democratic Governor Andrew Cuomo.

Clinton said in the statement that “These stories are difficult to read, and the allegations brought forth raise serious questions that the women who have come forward and all New Yorkers deserve answers to.”

“I’m glad to see that there will be a full, independent, and thorough investigation,” Clinton added in the statement.

Since Clinton released the statement, a third accuser has come forward and has evidence, including a photograph that was taken showing Cuomo with his hands on her face as she appears to be attempting to recoil.

From Breaking 911:

A woman named Anna Ruch says Cuomo made her feel “confused and shocked and embarrassed” during a wedding event in September of 2019. Ruch, who is now 33, told The New York Times that it was the first time she met Cuomo.

Ruch says she thanked him for his complimentary remarks about her newlywed friends when the Governor placed his hand on her lower back. Ruch claims Cuomo called her “aggressive” when she forcibly removed his hand from her back.

Shockingly, Ruch says Cuomo then placed both hands on her face and asked, “Can I kiss you?”

“I was so confused and shocked and embarrassed,” Ruch said. “I turned my head away and didn’t have words in that moment.”

Ruch provided The Times with a photograph of the encounter as well as text messages regarding the incident.
