“It was the right thing to do (to file a complaint). The governor must be held accountable (…) What he did to me was a crime. He broke the law, “Brittany Commisso, whose complaint filed last week in Albany County, the state capital, paves the way for a possible prosecution of Andrew Cuomo, told CBS News.

During the 25 minutes of interview excerpts broadcast Monday by CBS, he recounted how the governor went from “hugs to say goodbye” to “hugs increasingly stronger (…) with kisses on the cheek”, until on one occasion, “He quickly turns his head to kiss me on the mouth.”
Brittany Commisso also returned to two incidents reported in the report, the first when the governor allegedly grabbed her buttocks during a selfie, and then in November 2020, at her official residence, when he allegedly ran his hand under her blouse. chest.
“I vividly remember looking down, seeing his hand, a big hand, and saying to myself, ‘Oh my God, this is happening.’ It happened so fast that he didn’t say anything. When I stopped him, he just stopped and left, ”he explained.
Last Tuesday, the governor assured that “he had never touched anyone inappropriately or made inappropriate sexual advances.” Since then, her lawyers have also sought to fight back, in particular by broadcasting a story from November 16, 2020, from emails, which allegedly showed that Brittany Commisso exchanged that day with her colleagues in a light tone.
