Read the Full Attorney General Report Finding Andrew Cuomo Sexually Harassed Multiple Women

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo sexually harassed multiple women, according to a report released Tuesday by state Attorney General Letitia James.

During a press conference Tuesday morning, James said the investigation into Cuomo's misconduct found he had "sexually harassed multiple women, and in doing so violated federal and state law."

The entire 165-page report can be read here. It includes interviews with 179 witnesses and a review of tens of thousands of documents. It details sexual harassment of his own staff in addition to other state employees—which includes a state trooper—as well as members of the public.

The report's opening summary stated that the attorney general's office found the governor "sexually harassed a number of current and former New York State employees by, among other things, engaging in unwelcome and nonconsensual touching, as well as making numerous offensive comments of a suggestive and sexual nature that created a hostile work environment for women."

"We also conclude that the Executive Chamber's culture—one filled with fear and intimidation, while at the same time normalizing the Governor's frequent flirtations and gender-based comments—contributed to the conditions that allowed the sexual harassment to occur and persist," the summary continued. "That culture also influenced the improper and inadequate ways in which the Executive Chamber has responded to allegations of harassment."

Along with inappropriate comments, the allegations against Cuomo include instances of unwanted touching and kissing. "What these witnesses—and many others—described is not just old-fashioned, affectionate behavior, it was sexual harassment," the report read.

It also stated that the governor retaliated against a former employee who complained publicly about his conduct.

The probe into allegations of sexual harassment by Cuomo began in March after the state's executive chamber granted the attorney general's request to investigate.

James said her findings paint "a deeply disturbing, yet clear, picture."

During the press conference, she also described Cuomo's office as a "a toxic workplace" for many employees.

Cuomo has repeatedly denied allegations of sexual harassment, and he has resisted calls for his resignation—even as fellow Democratic lawmakers have called on him to do so.

"I never harassed anyone, I never assaulted anyone, I never abused anyone," the governor said in March.
