Nick Reisman is reporting for State of Politics Gov. Andrew Cuomo on July 17, will be interviewed by investigators charged with probing allegations of sexual harassment and misconduct leveled against him by multiple women. The interview is to be conducted in Albany, and was first reported by The New York Times. This news comes after other administration officials were also questioned by investigators Joon Kim and Anne Clark in recent weeks. Rich Azzopardi, a spokesperson for the governor, accused investigators of leaking information concerning the probe. “We have said repeatedly that the governor doesn’t want to comment on this review until he has cooperated, but the continued leaks are more evidence of the transparent political motivation of the Attorney General’s review," Azzopardi wrote in a statement. According to Reisman, the timing of Cuomo's interview is an indication that the investigation is close to reaching its final stage. Democratic and Republican state lawmakers have called on Cuomo to resign. Cuomo has been accused of making inappropriate comments to women who worked in his office. He has said he apologizes to anyone who may have felt uncomfortable. In recent weeks Cuomo has insisted he is eager to tell his side of the story. Read more at nystateofpolitics [dot] com.
