Report: Cuomo Accused of Sexual Harassment Days Before Termination
According to The Guardian, former CNN anchor Chris Cuomo was hit with an allegation of sexual harassment just days before the network announced his termination.
Attorney Debra Katz said her client alleged “serious sexual misconduct” by Cuomo and had told CNN about the allegation on Wednesday.
Katz said her client decided to come forward after the New York attorney general’s office released a report showing Cuomo had taken a much larger role in helping his brother, former New York Governor Andrew Cuomo (D), following his sexual harassment accusations.
“Hearing the hypocrisy of Chris Cuomo’s on-air words and disgusted by his efforts to try to discredit these women, my client retained counsel to report his serious sexual misconduct against her to CNN,” Katz said in a statement.
