Chris Cuomo, the CNN presenter and brother of former New York Governor Andrew Cuomo (D), has been accused of sexual harassment by his former boss at ABC News.
Shelley Ross, a journalist who has served as a producer for ABC and CBS, claimed in an article published Friday in the New York Times that Cuomo sexually molested me at a farewell party for an ABC colleague in 2005. Ross, formerly Cuomo's executive producer on ABC's Primetime Live, writes that he "walked up to me and greeted me with a big hug while lowering a hand to firmly grasp and squeeze my cheek against my buttocks," and he did should have told her: "I can do this now". You're not my boss anymore. "Ross says Cuomo emailed her an hour later apologizing, and the essay includes a copy of that email with the subject line," Now that I think of it. .. I am ashamed. "Cuomo apologizes in the e-mail first to Ross'" very good and noble husband "and then" also to you ".
Cuomo's brother Andrew resigned as governor of New York in August for sexual harassment. The CNN host was also criticized after it was revealed that he had participated in strategic meetings with the governor's staff on how to deal with the allegations. CNN said it was "inappropriate" to do so but did not take disciplinary action.
In her essay, Ross writes that Cuomo "crossed a line with me" and questions his "relationship to truth and accountability". She says she doesn't want him fired, but tells him to "journalistically turn around: agree to broadcast to investigate and then report on the effects of sexism, harassment and gender bias in the workplace, including his own ". Cuomo said in a statement to the Times that "our interaction was not sexual" and that "I apologized to her at the time and I meant it."
