Cuomo Supports Ford. What About Women in Albany?

New York, N.Y., September 23, 2018 - While Andrew Cuomo insists on a full investigation into Christine Blasey Ford’s allegations of sexual assault against Supreme Court Justice nominee Brett Kavanaugh, he is looking the other way when it comes to sexual assault and harassment allegations in Albany.

Consider:

-       Cuomo refuses to support the Sexual Harassment Working Group, which is made up of former state legislative staffers who experienced or witnessed sexual harassment or abuse. The women are pushing for tougher laws and internal investigative procedures. They’ve called for legislative hearings on the issue.

-       Cuomo is silent on the firing of a Department of Criminal Justice Services attorney after she testified as a witness in a sexual harassment case against a DCJS official. Another female employee was punished.

“Cuomo supports Ford, but won’t support women in his own state,” said Miner. “Hold sexual harassment hearings in Albany. Let women finally be heard everywhere and all the time - not just when it is politically convenient.”
