New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s (D) fall from grace continues after the New York Times on Monday night published a woman named Anna Ruch’s allegation that he had attempted to kiss her without consent at a wedding in 2019.

Ruch is the third woman to accuse the governor of sexual misconduct after two of his former aides, Lindsey Boylan and Charlotte Bennett, alleged that Cuomo had made unwelcome sexual advances in the workplace.

New York Attorney General Letitia James announced on Monday that her office had begun investigating the allegations.

Meanwhile, Cuomo faces more legal woes in a different area after his administration was found to have withheld data on COVID-19 deaths among nursing home residents last spring, leading to a serious undercounting of the death toll in his state at the moment he was basking in praise over his handling of the pandemic.
