Gillibrand: Cuomo allegations "completely unacceptable"

“The women who have come forward have shown tremendous courage and must be treated with respect and dignity,” she said. “The behavior described in these allegations against Governor Cuomo is completely unacceptable.”

Gillibrand noted that she has called on New York Attorney General Letitia James to investigate the allegations and use her subpoena power to get to the bottom of conflicting accounts of Cuomo’s conduct.

“I’m confident that it will be comprehensive and will cover all allegations against the governor in order to get the answers we need,” she said.
