According to the New York Post, Chris Cuomo is facing new allegations of sexual assault. The report reveals the accusation was “made to CNN lawyers in December hours after Cuomo was suspended for advising his brother, then-Gov. Andrew Cuomo, [on] how to dodge his own sexual harassment accusations.”
Cuomo was fired days later.
“The unnamed accuser had come forward after Chris Cuomo was suspended from the network on Nov. 30 for helping Gov. Cuomo try to beat back the multiple allegations that ultimately ended his political career, the report said,” the Post adds.
While working at ABC, Cuomo, then 51, invited a young woman from the office for lunch under the pretext of giving her career advice; but there was no lunch. Instead, the anchor “badgered her for sex,” the letter sent to CNN’s lawyers reportedly said.
When she declined his advance, he reportedly attacked her, the letter alleged.
