Third female former staffer accuses New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo of inappropriate conduct

Third female former staffer accuses New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo

A third female former staffer has come forward with accusations of inappropriate conduct by embattled New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, according to reporting by the Wall Street Journal on Saturday night.

The Democratic governor already stands accused of sexual harassment by two women and unwanted advances against him by a third.

A former aide for Cuomo, Ana Liss, told The Wall Street Journal that the governor "asked her if she had a boyfriend, called her sweetheart, touched her on her lower back at a reception and once kissed her hand when she rose from her desk."

Cuomo apologized earlier this month for making people uncomfortable and denied touching people inappropriately.

"I never touched anyone inappropriately. I never touched anyone inappropriately," Cuomo said in his first public remarks addressing the scandal. "I never knew at the time that I was making anyone feel uncomfortable. I never knew at the time I was making anyone feel uncomfortable."
