NEW YORK — A former aide to New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo came forward with allegations Friday that he subjected her to verbal and mental abuse after hiring her because of her physical appearance, becoming the seventh woman to accuse the embattled governor of sexually charged misconduct.
The ex-aide, only identified as Kaitlin, told New York Magazine that she first encountered Cuomo at a fundraiser in 2016 hosted by the lobbying firm she was working for at the time.
At the end of the event, the governor approached her and other employees at the lobbying firm to introduce himself, according to Kaitlin.
When he got to Kaitlin, Cuomo told her he had a feeling she would soon be working in state government, she said.
