Second Former Cuomo Aide Accuses Him of Sexual Harassment
Spencer Platt/GettyA second former aide to New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo has accused him of sexual harassment.

Charlotte Bennett, 25, a former executive assistant and health policy adviser in the administration, told The New York Times that Cuomo had asked her multiple questions about her sex life and relationships, including whether she had ever slept with an older man and whether she was romantically involved with other staff members, when the two were alone in his office in June 2020. She said he said he was open to a relationship with a woman in her 20s and had been looking for a girlfriend in Albany.

"I understood that the governor wanted to sleep with me, and felt horribly uncomfortable and scared," she said, adding that she "assumed it was the end of my job." She reported the incident to his chief of staff and gave a statement about the incident to a special counsel's office, after which, she said, she was transferred to a job on the other side of the Capitol building from the governor. Her parents and friends confirmed to the Times that she mentioned the conversation with Cuomo in subsequent days.

Montgomery County JailJessica Watkins, an Oath Keeper accused of preparing and training for at least two months to "fight hand to hand" to take over the Capitol, spoke out publicly for the first time in court Friday, claiming she plans to leave the far-right paramilitary group behind.

"My fellow Oath Keepers have kind of turned my stomach against it," Watkins said during an afternoon detention hearing. "We're done with that lifestyle ... I did it out of love for my country but it's time to let all of that go."

Watkins, a 38-year-old Army vet, is among several Oath Keepers who have been charged with conspiring and recruiting others to storm the Capitol on Jan. 6 as Congress met to certify President-elect Joe Biden's electoral victory. She pleaded not guilty during Friday's hearing.
