Though there was confusion over the filing of charges. After an early media report that charges had been filed in Albany County court, a clerk told FrontPageDetectives at 3:30 p.m. that no charges had been filed. Then minutes later, a spokeswoman for the New York court system told some media outlets that charges had been filed.

That spokeswoman did not respond to FrontPageDetectives for clarification.

A report released by the New York Attorney General’s office on Aug. 3, found the Democratic Governor harassed multiple women, who were current or former state employees. The actions included groping, kissing, hugging and making inappropriate comments.

Investigators also found Cuomo and staff members took action to retaliate against one person who came forward with her story.

The executive officer fostered a toxic workplace that allowed the harassment, the report found.

Investigations spoke to 179 people and reviewed more than 74,000 documents, emails and texts during the course of the investigation.
