Is 8 the Magic number for Cuomo?

A current aide to New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, accused the embattled governor Friday of making suggestive remarks and engaging in other forms of alleged harassment, marking the latest allegation in a widening scandal that threatens to oust Cuomo from office.

The aide, identified as Alyssa McGrath, described several instances of alleged inappropriate behavior in an interview with the New York Times. She said Cuomo commented on her looks and ogled her body in the workplace.

Eight women, including current and former aides, have accused Cuomo of sexual harassment or misconduct. One woman, another current aide who has not been publicly identified, accused Cuomo of groping her during an encounter at the governor’s mansion. The unnamed aide’s allegation was first reported by the Albany Times-Union.

McGrath, 33, said the unnamed aide described her alleged encounter with Cuomo in detail after the Times-Union’s report was published. McGrath said the aide told her that Cuomo asked her not to discuss the incident because the two were acquainted.
