Gov. Andrew Cuomo is set to be grilled this weekend as part of an independent state probe into allegations he sexually harassed current and former female aides, a source familiar with the matter said Thursday. Outside lawyers hired by state Attorney General Letitia James plan to question Cuomo in Albany on Saturday, the source said. The move may be a sign that the four-month investigation is entering its final stages, according to the New York Times, which first reported the development. But Cuomo and other witnesses could still be re-interviewed depending on what he says and what other evidence is uncovered, the Times said. James is on track, however, to issue a report on the findings by the end of the summer, a person familiar with the probe told The Times. Cuomo, a three-term Democrat, is up for re-election next year and held a fundraiser in midtown Manhattan last month that reportedly netted him $1 million in campaign cash from backers who included some of the state’s powerful labor leaders. Veteran Republican political consultant Ed Rollins said, “Cuomo will have a tougher time if the labor unions pull away from him.”
