Chris Cuomo allegedly attacked a female ABC News temp worker when she denied his proposition for sex during a “lunch” in his office, it was revealed on Tuesday.
The accusation was made to CNN lawyers in December hours after Cuomo was suspended for advising his brother, then-Gov. Andrew Cuomo, how to dodge his own sexual harassment accusations, according to the New York Times. The CNN host was fired days later.
The unnamed accuser had come forward after Chris Cuomo was suspended from the network on Nov. 30 for helping Gov. Cuomo try to beat back the multiple allegations that ultimately ended his political career, the report said.
“Jane Doe” had long been disgusted by the similarities between the Democrat’s accusers’ plight and her own, employment lawyer Debra Katz reportedly said.
Chris Cuomo was fired after allegedly attacking a female ABC News temp.
Chris Cuomo, 51, had invited the “young” worker to his office for lunch on the pretext of giving her advice on obtaining full-time employment at the network in 2011, according to the report.
Whenever the lady showed up, there was no food, and the anchor bullied her for sex, the letter shipped off CNN legal counselors on Dec. 1 purportedly said.
Whenever she declined his development, he apparently assaulted her, the letter affirmed.
After five years, as #MeToo allegations encompassed reporters like Charlie Rose and Matt Lauer, Chris Cuomo reached his informer to do a complimenting piece about her then-manager, as indicated by the article.
His effort was an endeavor to “‘try things out’s and deter her from going on the record about his sexual offense,”
Katz apparently composed.
Numerous companions and previous colleagues said the informer had let them know Cuomo made undesirable passes at her, as indicated by the paper.
In a meeting with the paper, the informer said she was “spooky” by the equals between her involvement in Chris Cuomo and the informers of the previous lead representative, and before long recruited a legal advisor.
The lady was “profoundly damaged,” and would stay unknown so as not to turn into
“a pawn in an internecine conflict between [Jeff] Zucker, Chris Cuomo and CNN,”
Katz purportedly wrote in the letter to CNN, which prompted the quick excusal of the anchor.
