NYT: Third woman accuses Gov. Cuomo of inappropriate behavior


(WIVB) – According to a Monday report from the New York Times, a third woman has accused Gov. Andrew Cuomo of inappropriate behavior.

The story tells the account of Anna Ruch, now 33, who claims she met the governor at a Sept. 2019 wedding reception. Ruch said that Cuomo placed his hand on her bare lower back, and when she removed his hand with hers, remarked that she seemed “aggressive” and put his hands on her cheeks and asked if he could kiss her.

Both Charlotte Bennett and Lindsey Boylan tweeted their support for Ruch.
