Albany County Sheriff Announces Investigation Into Gov. Cuomo


Authorities in Albany County have opened an investigation into Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D-N.Y.), which stemmed from a criminal complaint filed from a former aid. On Saturday, Sheriff Craig Apple announced the ongoing investigation into the embattled governor after the staffer complained Cuomo groped her at his state residence last year. “I cannot get into the nature of her specific allegations at this time obviously. We are in the very infant stages of this investigation,” Apple explained. “We have a lot of fact-finding to do, we have interviews to conduct and it would be totally premature to comment on any of that.” According to authorities, the Democrat governor could be arrested and face misdemeanor charges if it was determined a crime has been committed. The sheriff said his office has requested investigative material from the state attorney general’s office as well as Cuomo’s lawyers. Following multiple investigations, which have stemmed from several allegations, the governor has denied any wrongdoing. Cuomo went on to say, “I want you to know directly from me that I never touched anyone inappropriately or made any inappropriate sexual advances.”
