A former assistant to New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has reportedly filed a criminal complaint with the Albany County Sheriff’s office this week after the state’s Attorney General confirmed the Democrat “sexually harassed multiple women.”
“Albany County Sheriff Craig Apple told the newspaper that the unnamed woman filed the complaint Thursday afternoon and the Albany County District Attorney’s Office has been contacted,” reports The Hill.
“The end result could either be it sounds substantiated and an arrest is made and it would be up to the DA to prosecute the arrest,” Apple told The New York Post.
“Just because of who it is we are not going to rush it or delay it,” he said.
