A third woman has accused New York governor Andrew Cuomo of inappropriate behaviour, saying he touched her back and face and asked to kiss her moments after meeting at a wedding. Mr Cuomo is already facing an investigation over other sexual harassment claims and pressure for him to step aside is growing. Anna Ruch, 33, told the New York Times she was “so confused and shocked and embarrassed” by the encounter. She said she removed the governor’s hand from her bare lower back, but he said she seemed “aggressive”, and he then put his hands on her face and asked to kiss her. A person who treats women this way is not fit to govern. https://t.co/htuEUenbQq — John C. Liu (@LiuNewYork) March 2, 2021 “I turned my head away and didn’t have words in that moment,” said Ms Ruch.

Mr Cuomo, 63, has not directly addressed the latest allegation but a spokesman referred to a previous statement from the governor.
