The New York governor, who announced his resignation today, acknowledges that he has always kissed “casually”
Faced with allegations of sexual harassment that he continues to describe as unfair and untrue, Andrew Cuomo, the New York governor who announced his resignation today, admits that he has always been “too affectionate with people.” That his sense of humor can be “heavy and tactless”. And, as an Italian, he recognizes that he has always hugged and kissed “casually” both women and men.
“I have done it all my life, it is what I am since I can remember myself – added the governor – in my mind I have never crossed the line with anyone, but I did not realize that this limit had been redesigned “.
“There have been generational and cultural changes – he added referring to the ‘metoo’ movement – and I did not fully understand and I should have no excuses”. Cuomo then apologized to the women who “felt offended” by his behavior.
