“Without explicitly saying it, he implied to me that I was old enough for him and he was lonely,” Charlotte Bennett the former aide to New York Governor Andrew Cuomo told Norah O’Donnell of “CBS Evening News” on Thursday.
“I thought, he’s trying to sleep with me, the governor is trying to sleep with me. And I am deeply uncomfortable, and I have to get out of this room as soon as possible,” added Bennett.
Bennett said that Cuomo felt emboldened as his national profile rose amid his daily televised outbreak updates during the pandemic.
“I think he felt like he was untouchable in a lot of ways,” she told O’Donnell.
Bennett reiterated her claims that the governor asked her if age difference mattered in a relationship and said he told her he was “fine” with anyone over 22 years old.
