Cuomo to file lawsuit against James with entity that can disbar New York lawyers

“Given the sustained and brazen nature of his offenses, we believe it is clear that Mr. Cuomo is unfit to continue as an attorney in New York State,” wrote officials. members of the Sexual Harassment Working Group.

The Cuomo case continues

Cuomo’s attorney, for her part, spent most of her Thursday briefing reiterating familiar arguments that the plaintiffs lack credibility.

Glavin claimed James failed to investigate Cuomo accuser Lindsey Boylan’s message to former Empire State development czar Howard Zemsky threatening to “destroy [his] life.” Zemsky, who had previously signed a letter saying he did not recall Cuomo asking Boylan to play strip poker, later swore that he recalled such a comment.

Glavin also focused on what she called James’ decision to “selectively slow the release” of evidence against Cuomo.

When James was running for governor in November, she released a soldier’s transcript saying an investigator told her he saw the governor and a senior executive kiss. She did not release the transcript in which the investigator denied this until after she ended her campaign the following month, Glavin argued.

“It was wrong, and she misused state resources for political gain,” Glavin alleged.

Attorney General’s Response

James’ office tore up the latest allegations from Cuomo’s legal team.

“For months, Andrew Cuomo hid behind his campaign lawyer and falsely cried ‘witch hunt’ despite having admitted to this misconduct on several occasions before,” James’ office said in a statement. .

“If he thinks he has a real legal case, he should go ahead and file it. These attacks are shameful and yet another desperate charade to hide the truth: Andrew Cuomo is a serial sexual harasser.

Erica Vladimer, a leader of the Sexual Harassment Task Force, called it ironic that Glavin points to a public servant who has sworn to uphold the law and says he is politically motivated.

Glavin “represents one of the most politically motivated people in New York State,” Vladimer said of Cuomo.

The task force letter noted that individuals like Albany County District Attorney David Soares had concluded that the charges summarized by James were “credible.”
