Former Aide Says New York Gov. Cuomo ‘Propositioned Her’ During Office Meeting and Asked if She Was ‘Able to Enjoy Being Intimate’ as a Victim of Rape

Andrew Cuomo ‘propositioned’ a 25-year-old advisor in his office, after quizzing her on her sex life and asking whether she had sex with older men, she has claimed.

Charlotte Bennett, 25, spoke out on Thursday night in her first televised interview.

One of three women to accuse Cuomo of sexual harassment, she said the powerful three-term governor, who was giving daily televised briefings in the midst of the pandemic and was receiving a rapturous reception, ‘felt like he was untouchable in a lot of ways’ when he ‘propositioned’ her.

He asked probing questions such as whether, as a survivor of rape, she was ‘able to enjoy being intimate’ with men.

Bennett worked as a health policy adviser in the New York governor’s administration, hired in the spring of 2019 and swiftly promoted to senior briefer and executive assistant only a few months later.

Bennett had a friendly relationship with Cuomo due to their mutual ties to Westchester County, and saw him as a mentor.

She claimed that, in the spring of 2020, when she moved to Albany, he began quizzing her on her sex life and whether she dated older men.

She told Norah O’Donnell that the first awkward conversation was on May 15.

She revealed that she had been raped, and Cuomo seemed fascinated by her story.

On June 5, she was asked to take a dictation and at the end he asked her to turn off the tape.
