In a tweet from May 17, 2013, the disgraced politician writes, "There should be a zero tolerance policy when it comes to sexual harassment & must send a clear message that this behavior is not tolerated."

One person in particular who highlighted the former statement was Cuomo's firm political opponent, Donald Trump Jr. The son of the former president uploaded the tweet to Instagram along with the caption "I’ll take tweets that did not age well for $1000 Alex."

The now-ironic statement came to light on Tuesday, August 3, following New York Attorney General Letitia James releasing her findings from the probe into the multiple accusations that the 63-year-old former lawyer sexually harassed several women.

“Gov. Cuomo sexually harassed several women,” James stated at a press conference following the report's release on Tuesday. The findings conclude that due to his inappropriate actions, the father-of-three violated state and federal laws. James also went on to state that what was found during the probe painted "a deeply disturbing, yet clear, picture.”

The revealing document goes on to say that the head of the state harassed 11 women, including current and former employees, a state trooper and other New York state employees.

The report found that the 56th governor of New York, along with people on his team, created what the Attorney General referred to as “a toxic workplace.” As OK! previously reported, the Governor and members of his staff allegedly went after a former employee after she accused the politician of displaying inappropriate behavior towards her.

As OK! previously reported back in December of 2020, former aide Lindsey Boylan was the first woman who came forward with allegations against the political figure saying that he “sexually harassed” her “for years.” She went on to claim that he "isolated her and kissed her" and would also "go out of his way to touch me on my lower back, arms and legs."
