Two more women and men came forward on Saturday, accusing the governor of improper behavior.
Currently, there are a total of five whistleblowers pointing out Kuomo’s inappropriate behavior.
Recent allegations come from two women accusing him of various forms of sexual harassment.
The latest whistleblower is Karen Hinton, who later served as a spokesman for Mayor Bill de Blasio.
Hinton told The Washington Post in 2000 that he summoned her to a hotel room and pulled her in and hugged her while serving as a reporter for the governor in “Hud.”
The second woman who was an aide to the governor from 2013 to 2015. “Ana Lis” told The Wall Street Journal that the governor touched her hips, kissed her hands, and asked if she had a boyfriend.
The squirrel initially thought it was a harmless flirt, but later told the paper that it was inappropriate.
This is in addition to the other three women who came out earlier.
The Washington Post also cites two former male aides who accused Cuomo of abusive behavior and dirty language.
The Governor’s Office issued a statement that appeared to address only Karen Hinton’s allegations.
“This didn’t happen. Karen Hinton is a known adversary of the governor who is trying to use this moment to score cheap points in a 21-year-old claim,” the statement read. “Every woman has the right to go forward and talk about herself, but it is also the responsibility of the press to consider self-motivation. This is reckless.”
The news came out on Friday when the state legislature resolved to limit the governor’s executive branch and approved a nursing home scandal.
There is a growing demand for Cuomo to resign-he doesn’t seem to resign at this time.
