The Albany Police Department has been formally notified about the allegation that Gov. Andrew Cuomo groped a female staffer in an incident that may amount to a crime, a source familiar with the matter said Thursday.
Cops haven’t launched an official probe but have “reached out to the victim’s attorney and offered up any other police assistance,” a police spokesman said.
“At this time, there has been no formal criminal complaint and there is no active criminal investigation,” spokesman Steve Smith said.
Cuomo’s acting counsel, Beth Garvey, acknowledged in a statement that state officials had referred the matter for possible criminal investigation.
“As a matter of state policy when allegations of physical contact are made, the agency informs the complainant that they should contact their local police department,” Garvey said.
The independent investigators spearheading the probe into sexual harassment allegations against New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo have launched a fact-finding website.
High-profile attorneys Joon Kim and Anne Clark are asking anyone with information relating to the investigation to come forward.
Those with relevant information can contact the investigators at 212-225-3100 for voice messages, 518-545-0870 for texts or via email at email@example.com, the site says.
