Transcript for Cuomo accusers speak out overnight
We'll be back with you later. To the latest trouble for New York governor Andrew Cuomo. One of the women accusing him of sexual harassment details her conversations with the embattled governor in a new prime time interview and Stephanie Ramos has the latest on this one. Good morning, Stephanie. Reporter: Good morning, that's right. We are hearing from one of the women accusing governor Andrew Cuomo of inappropriate behavior. Just a day after he publicly apologized. This morning, as New York state lawmakers prepare to vote to strip governor Andrew Cuomo of his emergency coronavirus powers, Charlotte Bennett, one of the women accusing him of sexual harassment is speaking out. Do you believe that he was propositioning you? Yes. For what? Sex. Reporter: The 25-year-old sitting down for an interview with CBS saying the governor asked her multiple questions about her sex life during a one-on-one meeting in June. Without explicitly saying he he implied to me that I was old enough for him and he was lonely. Reporter: Bennett who worked as an executive assistant for the governor said Cuomo never got physical but he would ask her about her sexual assault experience. He asked if I had trouble enjoying being with someone because of my trauma. The governor asked me if I was sensitive to intimacy. Reporter: Bennett saying she answered the governor's questions but felt shame for doing so. I feel like people put the onus on the woman to shut that conversation down and by answering I was somehow engaging in that or enabling it. When, in fact, I was just terrified. Reporter: Bennett says she reported the encounter to Cuomo's chief of staff and transferred eventually leaving the administration all together in November. Another former aide, Lindsey Boylan opening up to "Harper's bazaar" saying she decided to come forward after hearing about another woman with a similar experience and also when she learned Cuomo was likely being considered for U.S. Attorney general. A third accuser came forward this week, Anna Ruch telling "The New York Times" she met the governor the a wedding reception in 2019 where he asked to kiss the governor this week apologizing for making people feel uncomfortable but saying he will not resign. A recent quinnipiac poll shows most new yorkers don't want the governor to resign at 55% but nearly 60% say they don't want him to run again in 2022. The allegations seem like they keep on coming. There is now another report out accusing the governor's staff of rewriting a report on the number of deaths in nursing homes. Reporter: Exactly. "The New York Times" out with that report that the covid deaths in nursing homes were not underreported but, in fact, rewritten to conceal the actual number. The governor says he withheld those numbers out of concern that the trump administration would pursue a politically motivated inquiry into the state's handling of the outbreak. Cecilia. Going to be staying on this, thank you.
