New York governor accused of harassment by 11 women

Joe Biden has led calls from both parties for New York governor Andrew Cuomo to resign after an investigation found he had sexually harassed 11 women.

New York’s attorney general Letitia James unveiled the results of an investigation on Tuesday that showed Cuomo engaged in unwanted groping, kissing and hugging and made inappropriate comments to multiple women.

“I think he should resign,” the president told reporters at the White House hours after the results of the investigation were published.

“I understand that the state legislature may decide to impeach. I don’t know that for a fact. I’ve not read all that data.”

Asked about Cuomo’s attempt to defend himself by using an image in which he is making physical contact with Biden himself, the president said: “Look, I’m not going to flyspeck this. I am sure there were some embraces that were totally innocent, but apparently the attorney general decided there were things that weren’t.”

He acknowledged: “I’ve not read the report. I don’t know the detail of it. All I know is the end result.”
