On one occasion, Cuomo asked the trooper to help him find a girlfriend, and he described his criteria for a girlfriend as someone who “[c]an handle pain”.

New York attorney general Letitia James said the independent investigation found that governor Andrew Cuomo “fostered a toxic workplace that enabled harassment and created a hostile work environment”.
Investigators concluded that Cuomo’s office created “a climate of fear,” which made the victims of the governor’s sexual harassment hesitant to come forward.
