The Justice Department’s investigation revealed that former New York Governor Andrew Cuomo had sexually harassed at least 13 state employees.

This came after a four-month investigation into the multiple accusations made against him, which AG Letitia James announced in August 2021.

According to James, Cuomo violated both state and federal laws by creating a hostile work environment and harassing current and former employees.

The report, spanning 165 pages, detailed how Cuomo fostered a toxic work environment filled with fear and intimidation, allowing for harassment to thrive.

As a result of these findings, Cuomo was compelled to step down in 2021 following the release of Letitia James’ report.

ABC News reported:

The U.S. Justice Department concluded former New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo sexually harassed more than a dozen state employees, according to a settlement announced Friday that confirmed allegations from the damaging misconduct probe that led to the Democrat’s resignation.

The settlement between New York and the Justice Department resolves the federal agency’s sexual harassment investigation of Cuomo and outlines additional steps the state will take to change how it handles misconduct complaints.

Cuomo, once a rising star in the Democratic party, left office in 2021 after a report by Attorney General Letitia James concluded he sexually harassed at least 11 women.

He has denied wrongdoing and argued James’ report was driven by politics, intended to force him from office so she could run for governor.

The Justice Department investigation found a similar pattern of sexual misconduct by Cuomo and said he subjected at least 13 state employees to a sexually hostile work environment.

It said Cuomo’s staffers failed to adequately report allegations and retaliated against four women who raised complaints. The agency did not release a full report detailing its investigation but instead published a list of its findings.
