Governor Andrew Cuomo's Accuser Charlotte Bennett Demands He Resign Following Bombshell Investigation Report
After an explosive new report into the numerous accusations made against New York Governor Andrew Cuomo concluded he "sexually harassed several women," one of his alleged victims demanded that he resign.
Charlotte Bennett — Cuomo's former aide and one of the first accusers to bring his sexual misconduct to light — has since responded to the damning report, which stated the 63-year-old politician harassed 11 women, including current and former employees, a state trooper and other New York state employees. By doing so, New York Attorney General Letitia James declared that Cuomo violated state and federal laws.
"Resign, @NYGovCuomo," Bennett insisted via Twitter on Tuesday, August 3.
As OK! previously reported, Bennett and Lindsey Boylan were the first two ladies to make allegations against the embattled governor. Last December, Boylan — who worked for the Cuomo administration from March 2015 to October 2018 — said the father-of-three "isolated her and kissed her."
Cuomo would also "go out of his way to touch me on my lower back, arms and legs," Boylan insisted, and asked her to play "strip poker."
Meanwhile, Bennett claimed Cuomo would ask about her sex life and whether she would be interested in dating older men.

After his former aides came forward, several other women spoke up about Cuomo's inappropriate behavior. In light of the bombshell claims, more than 55 Democratic members of the New York State Assembly have demanded the powerful politician resign, which he has refused to do.
Cuomo previously addressed the shocking allegations on March 3, apologizing to the women for any offense taken while claiming he never touched "anyone inappropriately." He then pleaded with New York residents to wait for the independent review to be done before jumping to conclusions.
However, the New York Attorney General released her findings on Tuesday, August 3, and concluded that Cuomo did harass multiple women. The findings reveal “a deeply disturbing, yet clear, picture,” James noted, describing Cuomo’s office as “a toxic workplace.”
The probe was not a criminal one; however, James' findings may influence the state legislature when it comes to the possibility of impeaching Cuomo.
