Charlotte Bennett is 25 years old who accused Gov. Andrew Cuomo of sexual harassment, she became the second former aide to accuse New York Governor Andrew.
However, Charlotte confirmed that Governor Andrew never touched her physically, but accused him of asking questions about her dating and sex life. In an interview with The New York Times, she said Andrew asked her if she had sex with older men.
To the same publication, she said “I understood that the governor wanted to sleep with me, and felt horribly uncomfortable and scared,” and added, “And was wondering how I was going to get out of it and assumed it was the end of my job.”
Also, Charlotte claimed that Andrew Cuomo was alone in his capitol office and told her he was open to relationships with the women in their 20s and he interpreted them as clear overtures to a sexual relationship. On other hand, Andrew said to the same publication that he thought he was mentoring Bennett.
In a statement, he said “At work sometimes I think I am being playful and make jokes that I think are funny. I do, on occasion, tease people in what I think is a good-natured way. I do it in public and in private. You have seen me do it at briefings hundreds of times. I have teased people about their personal lives, their relationships, about getting married or not getting married. I mean no offense and only attempt to add some levity and banter to what is a very serious business.”
Then, he added “I now understand that my interactions may have been insensitive or too personal and that some of my comments, given my position, made others feel in ways I never intended. I acknowledge some of the things I have said have been misinterpreted as an unwanted flirtation. To the extent anyone felt that way, I am truly sorry about that.”
Additionally, Andrew said “To be clear I never inappropriately touched anybody and I never propositioned anybody and I never intended to make anyone feel uncomfortable, but these are allegations that New Yorkers deserve answers to,” and added “Separately, my office has heard anecdotally that some people have reached out to Ms. Bennett to express displeasure about her coming forward. My message to anyone doing that is you have misjudged what matters to me and my administration and you should stop now — period.”
