Former New York Governor Andrew Cuomo will not face criminal charges for allegedly molesting a former assistant at the Executive Mansion in 2020, according to the office of Albany District Attorney David Soares, who announced the decision on Tuesday.
As stated in a statement, Soares believes that the former assistant, Brittany Commisso, is “cooperative and believable,” but that after reviewing all of the material, the team has determined that they would be unable to achieve their burden at trial.
Because of this, Soares stated, “we have advised the Court that we will not be prosecuting this issue and we are seeking that any charges brought against us by the Albany County Sheriff be dropped.”
“I, like the majority of New Yorkers, continue to be genuinely concerned by charges such as those at issue here. Such behavior has no place in government or in any other place of employment. The possibility of criminal prosecution in these circumstances is often limited, but I urge victims of workplace harassment and abuse to come forward and bring these concerns to light in order for these critical dialogues to continue.”

When it comes to Commisso’s allegations of unwanted touching from Soares, Cuomo is slated to go before the court later this week and answer her charges that he did so inappropriately.
Last night, it was revealed that Cuomo would not be punished in connection with the nursing home crisis in which his administration reportedly tried to conceal the number of individuals who died from Covid after his orders were implemented.
