Assemblymember Anna Kelles’s Statement on Attorney General James’s Announcement Regarding Her Investigation into Sexual Harassment Allegations Against Governor Cuomo

The Attorney General’s report released today offers abundant evidence that the Governor sexually harassed numerous women and failed to follow his own sexual harassment policy. It is incredibly difficult to read through the Attorney General’s report and understand the full extent to which the Governor has abused his position of power. I stand by my original statement in February that should the credible allegations against the Governor prove truthful, then he should be held fully accountable. As a state we have endured and are continuing to endure a severe public health, social and economic crisis and we, as a state, will unite behind truth as the findings of state and federal investigations continue to unfold. We deserve leadership that shines in every aspect of their service and holds honor, equity, and integrity during times of crisis as well as times of stability and prosperity.
