The accuser, 55-year-old Sherry Vill, said Cuomo grabbed her face and kissed her cheeks in front of her home in 2017.
“I know the difference between an innocent gesture and a sexual one,” Vill said during a virtual press conference according to the Democrat & Chronicle. “I never felt as uncomfortable as I did the day Governor Cuomo came to my house. His actions were very overly sexual, highly inappropriate and disrespectful to me and my family.”
Vill was married at the time of the alleged incident, her attorney Gloria Allred said. Cuomo visited Vill’s home in Greece, N.Y., to survey flood damage, The Wall Street Journal’s Jimmy Vielkind reported.
“She has decided to break her silence and overcome her fear,” Allred said according to the Daily Caller News Foundation’s Mary Margaret Olohan.
Allred also showed what appeared to be an image of Cuomo smooching Vill captured that day in 2017.
Cuomo faces a growing number of sexual harassment allegations starting with former aide Lindsay Boylan, who alleged that the governor attempted to kiss her in his office, which he has denied.
Cuomo has said he never touched anyone inappropriately and apologized to anyone he made feel uncomfortable in the workplace. New York attorney general Letitia James is investigating the sexual harassment allegations against Cuomo.
Allred is a high-profile, self-proclaimed feminist lawyer whose clients have included accusers of Jeffrey Epstein and Harvey Weinstein.
