Assemblymember Lavine Statement on Attorney General’s Report

Glen Cove, New York – Assemblymember Charles Lavine (D-Glen Cove) issued the following statement on the report of investigation into allegations of sexual harassment by Governor Andrew M. Cuomo.

We are reviewing the Attorney General's extensive report documenting sexual harassment and misconduct committed by Governor Cuomo. The findings are extraordinarily disturbing. The details provided by the victims are repugnant.

The report is being studied by the members of the Judiciary Committee and every member of the Assembly. We are engaged in an intensive analysis of the report and its exhibits with our Assembly counsels and with our independent counsel, Davis Polk & Wardwell.

This is a difficult day for the People of the State of New York.I am deeply impressed with the professionalism and dedication of Attorney General James and counsel Joon Kim and Anne Clark.
