 N.Y. Gov. Andrew Cuomo Accused of Sexual Harassment by Second Former Aide, 25, Who Says He Asked If She Ever had Sex With an Older Man

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo (D), 63, has been accused of sexual harassment by a second former aide in a bombshell report by the New York Times published Saturday evening.

Charlotte Bennett, 25, told the Times that Cuomo started asking personal questions of a sexual nature last May after previously acting as a mentor. Bennet now says she believes Cuomo was grooming her by taking an interest in her life.

Cuomo denies harassing Bennett and Bennett says Cuomo never tried to touch or kiss her. However Bennett says he asked her when she last hugged someone, if she was monogamous, whether she was sleeping with any of Cuomo’s staffers and whether she had ever had sex with an older man while telling her he was open to dating women in their twenties. Bennett also said Cuomo focused on her being a rape survivor.

Bennett reported the conversations to Cuomo’s chief of staff and to a lawyer in his office. Bennett was given a transfer to the other side of the Capitol in Albany but soon left the government and the state. Bennett also shared with the Times contemporaneous text messages with family and friends about the alleged harassment.

Bennett spoke to the Times after a reporter spotted her tweet commenting on the first former Cuomo staffer to accuse him of sexual harassment, Lindsey Boylan, who accused Cuomo of several instances of harassment and of kissing her, “For those wondering what it’s like to work for the Cuomo admin, read

@LindseyBoylan’s story.”
