(PresidentialInsider.com)- Fresh off the back of a scandal involving a cover up of the total number of people who died in New York nursing homes because of Governor Andrew Cuomo’s order to send COVID-positive patients into the facilities last year, the Democratic Governor is in the middle of a new scandal involving grooming allegations from his former executive assistant.
25-year-old Charlotte Bennett who worked for Governor Cuomo gave an exclusive interview to Norah O’Donnell on CBS Evening News that aired o0n Thursday, in which she said she believes she was being “groomed” for sex with the high-profile Democrat.
“I thought he was trying to sleep with me. The governor’s trying to sleep with me,” she said.

O’Donnell revealed before the interview aired that Bennett said 63-year-old Cuomo “asked her about her sex lift” and whether she “had sex with older men.” He would also allegedly tell Bennett that he was “lonely.”
Beth Garvey, an adviser to Governor Cuomo, told the press that Bennett’s concerns “were treated with sensitivity and respect and in accordance with applicable law and policy.”
“She was consulted regarding the solution, and expressed satisfaction and appreciation for the way in which it was handled,” she added.
In November, Bennett left the $55,000 per year role in Cuomo’s administration, with her lawyer, Debra Katz, stating that Cuomo’s actions “derailed her career.”
Democrats are still struggling to come to terms with the possibility that Governor Cuomo is not the angel they thought he was, with even high-profile radical leftists and feminists like Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez walking back their promise to “believe all women.”
On February 28, Ocasio-Cortez called for an investigation into the matter.
Lindsey Boylan and Charlotte Bennett’s detailed accounts of sexual harassment by Gov. Cuomo are extremely serious and painful to read.
There must be an independent investigation – not one led by an individual selected by the Governor, but by the office of the Attorney General.
