'Not normal.' Ex-Cuomo aide details groping allegations

By MARINA VILLENEUVE and KAREN MATTHEWS

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — An aide who accused New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo of groping her said in her first televised interview that she was initially afraid to identify herself because she worried the governor’s “enablers” would destroy her if she spoke up.

Snip: She said he groped her for the first time on Dec. 31, 2019, when the governor suggested the two take a selfie together.

“He was to my left. I was on the right. With my right hand, I took the selfie. I then felt while taking the selfie, his hand go down my back onto my butt, and he started rubbing it. Not sliding it. Not, you know, quickly brushing over it — rubbing my butt.”

Commisso, who began working in the governor’s office in 2017, said this made her so nervous that her hands began to shake, making it difficult for her to even take the picture.

1. It actually got worse. She said told Cuomo he should not be doing that, he went over to the

door and slammed it, and came back to her and did major groping and sexual advances

The resignation of Cuomo's top aide yesterday speaks volumes onto how his closest supporters view the incidents

2. I hope to see a day when any kind of groping is considered "not normal"

Unfortunately, many women have had to accept a certain level of unwelcome physical contact. Evidently Cuomo crossed the line. To paraphrase Whoopi Goldberg, there is groping and there is groping-groping. It is time to put a stop to it all.
