WHAT WE KNOW:
(POST) State Attorney General Letitia James on Monday received a formal green light to launch an independent investigation into sexual harassment allegations lodged against Gov. Andrew Cuomo — at the same time the administration hired a defense attorney to represent it in a Justice Department probe of its handling of nursing homes during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Today, we received a referral letter providing our office the authority to move forward with an independent investigation into allegations of sexual harassment claims made against Governor Cuomo.
At the close of the review, the findings will be disclosed in a public report.
