New York Governor Andrew Cuomo just got more bad news.
His political career may not survive this latest scandal.
And this bombshell photograph is the smoking gun that could bring down Andrew Cuomo.
Anna Ruch became the third woman to step forward with sexual harassment allegations against Governor Cuomo.
In an interview with The New York Times, Ruch described encountering Cuomo in 2019 at a wedding when Cuomo began to touch her without her consent and asking her for a kiss.
Ruch told The New York Times:
She recalled Mr. Cuomo moving his hand to the small of her back — exposed in an open-back dress — within moments of their being introduced and shaking hands at the reception.
Ms. Ruch said that touch, on her bare skin, discomfited her. “I promptly removed his hand with my hand, which I would have thought was a clear enough indicator that I was not wanting him to touch me,” she said.
Instead, Ms. Ruch said, Mr. Cuomo called her “aggressive” and placed his hands on her cheeks.
“He said, ‘Can I kiss you?’” Ms. Ruch said. “I felt so uncomfortable and embarrassed when really he is the one who should have been embarrassed.”
Ruch even provided a photograph of Cuomo with his hands caressing her neck as evidence of his inappropriate conduct.
This story of Cuomo creeping on Ruch coupled with the photograph saw the floodgates open for Democrats calling on Cuomo to resign.
New York Congresswoman Kathleen Rice became the first Democrat in Congress to call on Cuomo to step down.
“The time has come. The Governor must resign,” Rice wrote on social media.
Governor Cuomo has tried apologizing over the weekend.
That tactic failed as Ruch then came forward.
Her story and accompanying picture could spell the end of the line for Cuomo’s time as Governor.
