UPDATE: 8/3/21 3:05pm: In a videotaped statement, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo said the facts are different than they are being portrayed. Cuomo denied touching anyone inappropriately and called the investigation the result of political attacks. Cuomo claimed he’s gone through a similar experience in his family and was trying to be helpful to one of his accusers, and admittedly, he failed. He also said he never groped anyone in his home office as one of the victims described. Cuomo continues to refuse to step down from office.
