'Strange and inappropriate': Flood victim says Cuomo came onto her in her home

Source: NBC News

A married New York woman said Monday that Gov. Andrew Cuomo grabbed her by her face, gave her unwanted kisses and appeared to come on to her in front of her son while touring flood damage on her property in 2017.

Sherry Vill said she was introduced to Cuomo, in her Greece, New York, home where he leaned over and kissed her cheeks in a "highly sexual manner."

"He said, 'That’s what Italians do — kiss both cheeks,'" Vill told reporters in an online news conference with her attorney, Gloria Allred.

Vill said she was shocked by Cuomo's actions. “I am Italian. In my family, family members kiss. Strangers do not kiss,” Vill said.
As Cuomo, a Democrat, left to tour her property, Vill said he stopped, turned to her and said, "You're beautiful."

2. Back in the unwoke 1970s

I met a guy in college... he would walk up to random women on campus and say "You wanna fuck?" He get slapped a lot, ignored mostly, but some women would say "sure"... about 1 out of 200.

He is/was less creepy than Cuomo imho.

20. We had a guy like that, too

I had to laugh when I read your post. Looking back, I think he just didn’t have the savior faire to get women to like him, so rather than do totally without, he figured he’d give honesty a shot.

These stories from women about Cuomo all have one thing in common. They reveal his come on methods are from another day and time. Telling women they are beautiful is an example. What’s the appropriate response to that? “Oh, governor, I’d make a lovely armpiece?”

Or asking women in their early 20s if they liked older men. That’s just not something young women think about.

One of the first accounts was one that was really dated, too, but I can’t recall it at the moment.

I think there might be a certain amount of social ineptitude that runs in the family. His brother Chris says a lot of thoughtless things, too. Tonight when he transferred the show to Don Lemon, he called him “my boy.” Truly cringeworthy.

12. He pulled her close with one hand, and he held her neck

with his other hand.

I've been kissed on cheeks before, but not by men who grabbed my neck to do it. It's polite to touch you on the shoulder, or the arm, but not the neck. And it's not polite if it's not mutual. She was holding her dog, and he knew it hadn't been welcome. Why do we know that? Because he excused himself after that, saying he did it because he was Italian.

Okay, but it didn't end there.

Afterwards, he went outside with some people, and she went out and stayed on the porch. And before he left, he joined her on the porch and kissed her AGAIN, while she was still holding the dog.

Then he had a staffer email her to ask if she wanted to go to some event -- but he didn't invite her husband or a +1, which would have been normal.

36. So we have a fuzzy picture from a video "3+ years ago", neither of whom can be recognized, and....

..."her son no longer had the video". But he's got ONE screen shot of it!

Now let's be a little nitpicky, too - comparing the two pictures (with presumably the same clothes):

1. He's thinner than the "fuzzy" picture
2. His sleeve is a couple of inches up his bicep, in the "fuzzy" picture it's just about AT his bent elbow

If, you are not a man and have never been sexually harassed, then congratulations but please know that this is a very real and raw topic for a lot of people. Trivializing another's hurt is not a good profile for anyone. Why not let this Cuomo thing play out before jumping to conclusions? Do these accusations really seem out of the realm of reality to you? My gut is telling me there just might be some truth behind them. As a public figure, Cuomo should know all the pitfalls and expect that he will have to respond to accusations such as these, whether they be factual or not.

Offended or not, it did not call for a much more offensive comment, insulting a woman as a "clueless man", and my outrage (and hers) isn't "misdirected".

Male or female, "Cozmo" doesn't have license to insult anyone else, male or female. Calling even a man a "clueless man" is offensive, to do so to a woman is that much more offensive.

The same Tara Reade who became a RT media star, shopping her story when no one else listened to her anymore.
Because she wrote a script to fit a desired narrative as a political hit.

We see who's behind this & when Repub Elise Stefanik is selling Impeach Cuomo teeshirts, it pretty much blows the whole D level script writer's story.

"Money & Media" & a political low level scab hit.
And that is all this is about.

It pisses me off that they've weaponized the #METOO movement for their own political & monetary gain .
C'mon. ELISE STEFANIK? Who saw nothing wrong with Trump's (Epstein) sexual issues, to the point that she sat their and voted NOT to Impeach him the 1st time around!
Now she's all #METOO?

And Cuomo isn't accused of being a bully...he is accused of sexual harassment and sexual assault really by women who won't go under oath and make these charges. Thus I can't take them seriously. You know my history. I believe women who accuse a person and don't want an investigation or to go under oath hurt women like me who seek justice for assault.

But go on keep believing this bs...now I see you wanted biden to drop out too? Seriously? Obsessed and agenda driven to say the least...so I ask you why are witnesses in an ongoing investigation communicating with each other...that's usually a big no no..and this new accuser won't call for resignation, wants investigation to play out (hmm sound familiar?)...and most importantly won't file charges...if you aren't filing charges what's the damn point?

That's a ridiculous idea. James demanded subpoena power, and she's been using it to question witnesses.

And there is no ongoing trial, and no judge to tell these women they can't talk to each other or anyone else about what happened to them.

James's team is questioning everyone, under oath, after subpoenaing them to appear. She's not running some rinky-dink pretend investigation where only some people are under oath, but not the key witnesses.

And I don't know why you think I wanted Biden to drop out. I preferred other candidates -- till I heard Cliburn's endorsement -- but I wasn't calling for him to drop out.

64. Answering questions under subpoena means you are under oath.

James's team has been issuing subpoenas for witnesses to appear, and then questioning them privately -- under oath. That's how it's done and what makes this different from a story someone tells a reporter, which is not under oath.

Attorney General James's team has NOTHING TO DO with the Cuomo-associated attorneys running their little impeachment side-show for the NY House leaders. So the fact that some witnesses may be reluctant to speak to the Cuomo-associates doesn't mean they're ignoring subpoenas from AG James, which could put them in jail.

New York Attorney General Letitia James has reportedly subpoenaed dozens of staffers to Governor Andrew Cuomo, including top aide Melissa DeRosa, for her investigation into allegations of sexual harassment and inappropriate behavior by the governor.

https://gothamist.com/news/report-ny-ag-subpoenas-dozens-cuomo-aides-sexual-harassment-investigation

Receiving a Subpoena
A subpoena is a court order for you to appear as a witness at a deposition or in court. Th e subpoena may also require that you bring certain documents with you. A lawyer issues a subpoena to make sure that you appear and testify. Do not ignore a subpoena since your failure to appear could place you in contempt of court.

SNIP

Giving Deposition Testimony

A deposition is one of the tools that lawyers use to investigate the strengths and weaknesses of both sides of a case. Th e deposition makes a record of your recollection of the facts at a time when they are relatively fresh in your mind.

SNIP

At a deposition, you testify under oath, under penalty of perjury. If later testimony at trial confl icts with your deposition testimony, you will have to explain why. For these reasons, the testimony that you give at a deposition is just as important as the testimony that you give at a trial.

65. Where does it say the accusers are under oath?

 

I never said James hasn't subpoenaed anyone, you just proved my point they have been clear who has been under oath..cuomo's aides....and NO mention of boylan Bennett etc being under oath. Thank you for proving my point and deep sixing yours, you did a better job of shooting yourself in the foot than I could...thank you for proving me right and you wrong...and you keep calling the impeachment inquiry a sham..but they only refused to cooperate and called it a sham themselves after heastie said he would require THEM to also appear under oath...you still have haven't explained why they are afraid of going under oath..and why are they fraternizing with each other, deposed witnesses aren't supposed to communicate with each other let along discuss things over Twitter...more bad optics..if they were serious they'd file charges...so they won't file charges and won't testify under oath...what's the point of all this then? I am looking fwd to the impeachment inquiry subpoenaing boylan and co and them refusing..in fact I look fwd to Ag James putting them under oath and watching them try to wiggle out of it...again if they aren't filing charges this is all for nothing

68. Where does it say that ANY of AG James witnesses are not giving depositions under oath?

You can't seem to understand that the impeachment investigation Heastie is running has nothing to do with James's investigation.

They are willing to speak to AG James lawyers under oath. They aren't willing to participate in a parallel investigation run by attorneys connected to Cuomo.

And being serious doesn't require anyone to file charges.

70. You have only shown me that cuomo aides are under oath

 

Your own "proof" shows That cuomo aides are testifying under oath at NO point does anything say the accusers are under oath you have yet to show me anything that says they are under oath...but like I said they always say when witnesses are under oath like they do with the cuomo aides...if the accusers were answering under oath that would be mentioned as well...you aren't stupid so please stop saying that I'm saying the heastie investigation is the same as Ag James investigation..I am saying that they were all for impeachment UNTIL heastie said THEY would all have to be under oath too..then it became refusal to cooperate bec it was a sham...the minute they were expected to be under oath they changed their tune about cooperating

72. Most of the accusers either were or are aides of Cuomo's. The term "Cuomo aides"

includes women who worked or formerly worked for him and have made accusations.

74. Now you are purely making stuff up..

 


New York Attorney General Letitia James has reportedly subpoenaed dozens of staffers to Governor Andrew Cuomo, including top aide Melissa DeRosa, for her investigation into allegations of sexual harassment and inappropriate behavior by the governor.


They would specifically mention the accusers and not lump them in with former cuomo aides..you know this so please stop with the nonsense...and their lawyers in the statements would be very upfront about their clients being under oath..the fact that you cannot comprehend this shows you are just in denial..again I wish they'd put all doubt aside and file charges against him...what's stopping them if they are serious, don't half ass it, go all the way and file charges.

78. "They would specifically mention the accusers." Wrong. You have no basis for that

except for wishful thinking.

Many of the women making accusations are current or former staffers, so the large group called "staffers" includes that group of accusers.

Please link to a single statement by an attorney representing an accuser who says they refuse to testify to AG James team under oath, since you are so certain they exist. No one can prove a negative, but you can show me an example of what you're claiming exists. I've looked and can't find any attorney saying his client refuses to testify under oath in AG James's investigation.

79. Again please show me where it says the accusers are under oath..

 

We have seen in several articles that cuomo staffers have been answering under oath for the past month and ZERO mentions of the accusers being under oath and ZERO mentions from themselves or their lawyers citing that they've told their experiences under oath...In fact the only mention of the accusers being under oath is their refusal to do so in the impeachment inquiry. Again, you can deny it but this would be constantly reiterated by the accusers themselves or their lawyers...didn't Bennett's and boylans lawyers advise them not to go under oath after speaking with investigators? Some posters have mentioned that which would mean they haven't been under oath. Also they shouldn't be communicating with each other let alone volleying back and forth commenting on cuomo on Twitter or raising money off this at rallies. They seem to have their priorities wrong.

The burden is on you to prove what you are saying and you have failed thus far. When you find something that says they've been under oath please do share.

66. That is what I thought

There were plenty of people from Cuomo's past who had no qualms about turning on him when the opportunity presented itself.

As the saying goes, revenge is a dish most satisfying when served cold.

17. Why is that significant? No one's said this was an assault. She said it was unwanted

and unbusinesslike and made her uncomfortable.

And it is her right to explain how it felt. She's supporting the other women and that's her right, too.

18. Just big enough to run it by Boylan & the press.

Other than that, it was really nothing to file a civil suit over, or not a bad enough assault to think he should resign, or keep proof of via a video, but just bad enough to hand the story to Boylan & the Press.

Riiiight. Got it.

33. And it's right for millions of New Yorkers who voted for him and support him

to explain how ignoring their votes would "feel".

Are we really doing this? Are we demanding resignations of politicians elected by an overwhelming majorities because of how someone "felt"?

If that's the case, I have a rather large list of Retrumplicans that make me "feel uncomfortable".

39. Accusations do not equal guilt. That's why there is due process

Most may be like me: Holding off on the crucifixion until after all the evidence and investigations are done.

Seems to me they tried to do this the the VA governor too a couple years back and it was discovered to be nonsense. Democrats were ready to run him out of town. It was much ado about nothing and was a political hatchet job.

A lot smell the same thing now.

This is such a trash story, that the more of this desperate reach to discredit is shoved out there, the whole Boylen omg! bs will be seen for what it always was.

I mean, even Repub Elise Stefanik is in on the game.
They're all fundraising! Weeee! $$$
Cuomo will win his 2022 Gov seat because this story is becoming more unbelievable, at this point.
