New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo gave a farewell address to constituents on Monday, two weeks after announcing his reation and questioning the fairness of an investigation by State Attorney General Letitia James that found he sexually harassed multiple women, including current and former state employees. It's not fair or sustainable. Facts still matter. He went on to criticize James' report -- which included claims from 11 women, including one he allegedly retaliated against -- comparing it to a firecracker that causes a stampede.

There was a political and media stampede but the truth will come out in time. Of that I am confident," Cuomo said. Cuomo said his reation takes effect at p. Monday and New York state Lt. Kathleen Hochul will succeed him as governor. Cuomo's reation announcement came a week after James, a Democrat, released the of a five-month investigation into the sexual harassment allegations against the governor. Several women -- including Lindsey Boylan, 36; Anna Ruch, 33; and Charlotte Bennett, 25 -- have come forward to accuse the governor of unwanted advances.

The allegations added to Cuomo's political woes as his administration is under investigation for its handling of nursing home deaths during the pandemic. Cuomo's fall from public grace comes after he emerged early in the pandemic as a star among Democratic leaders for his handling of the coronavirus crisis. Boylan was the first to accuse the governor of sexual harassment and kissing her against her will.

She tweeted , "Yes [Cuomo] sexually harassed me for years. Many saw it, and watched. This was the way for years. Boylan expanded on the allegations in a Medium piece in which she accused Cuomo of acting inappropriately with her when she worked for the state's economic development agency. Boylan said she first encountered the governor in January and her boss at the economic development agency informed her Cuomo had a "crush" on her.

In October , Boylan alleged that Cuomo invited her to play strip poker as they were on a government plane together. One year later, Boylan said she was promoted to deputy secretary for economic development and special adviser to the governor, a position she initially turned down "because I didn't want to be near him. She also alleged that Cuomo kissed her on the lips without warning on one occasion in at his New York City office. I was made to believe this was the world I needed to survive in. It was all so normalized … that only now do I realize how insidious his abuse was.

When approached by The New York Times for comment on her claims, Cuomo's press secretary, Caitlin Girouard, dismissed them as "quite simply false. Bennett came forward to share her to the Times in a story published Feb. Bennett, who was first hired by Cuomo's administration in early , worked as an executive assistant and health policy adviser until November when she left his office. Bennett alleged that on June 5 she was alone with Cuomo in his state Capitol office when he allegedly asked her questions about her personal life that she interpreted as insinuating a sexual relationship.

She claims he asked her if she thought age made a difference in romantic relationships, whether she was monogamous in her relationships and if she ever had sex with older men. In that June meeting, she said Cuomo made her uncomfortable when he allegedly complained about being lonely in the pandemic and said he "can't even hug anyone" and asked, "Who did I last hug? She said she shared what happened with Cuomo's chief of staff, Jill DesRosiers, and was transferred less than a week later to another job within the administration in a different part of the Capitol. She also said she gave a statement to a special counsel to the governor that same month.

In the end, Bennett said she decided against pushing an investigation because she liked her new job and "wanted to move on. In response to her allegations, Cuomo stated in a press release : "I never made advances toward Ms. Bennett nor did I ever intend to act in any way that was inappropriate. The last thing I would ever have wanted was to make her feel any of the things that are being reported. Cuomo said Bennett was a "valued member" of his staff with "every right to speak out" and he disclosed that Bennett had spoken to him about being a survivor of sexual assault.

The same day Bennett's was published, the governor named former federal judge Barbara Jones to conduct a review of the claims. However, the move faced backlash and state leaders demanded a more independent probe. Cuomo bent to pressure and asked New York Attorney General Letitia James for a formal referral to create a special counsel with subpoena power to investigate the claims against him.

He added that some of his comments "may have been insensitive or too personal," "made others feel in ways I never intended" and "have been misinterpreted as unwanted flirtation. That same day, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, who has clashed with the governor in the past, issued a statement denouncing Cuomo's alleged behavior, saying, "the State legislature must immediately revoke the Governor's emergency powers that overrule local control.

New York state Sen. Alessandra Biaggi also denounced the governor's behavior, telling ABC News his alleged behavior was "inappropriate. The New York Times published an of alleged misconduct from Ruch. Unlike Boylan and Bennett, she did not work with Cuomo. She met him at a wedding reception in New York City in September and alleged Cuomo placed his hands on her bare lower back and face and "asked if he could kiss her.

She said the incident left her "uncomfortable and embarrassed" and she felt she "didn't have a choice in that matter. James also announced on Monday that her office would begin an independent investigation, which included subpoena power, into allegations of sexual harassment against the governor.

James' office told ABC News Monday evening it read Ruch's in the Times and will decide whether to incorporate it into the just-launched investigation. Kathleen Rice has become the first New York Democrat in Congress to mounting calls for Cuomo to re in wake of the allegations. In a statement shared with ABC News, the lawmakers said Cuomo used his power to "belittle, bully and harass his employees and colleagues" and impeachment proceedings "are the appropriate avenue" for ability.

It further states Cuomo's withholding of information in regards to nursing home deaths is "sufficient to justify impeachment proceedings. The attorney general's office will not limit the scope of the probe in case additional allegations surface. At the end of the investigation, a public report will be released. By evening, the State Assembly and State Senate prepared a bill to curb Cuomo's emergency powers granted during the pandemic. It will still allow Cuomo to extend existing emergency directives related to the pandemic but repeal other emergency powers.

Karen Hinton, a former press aide to Cuomo, claimed he behaved inappropriately with her when she worked as a consultant for the U. Department of Housing and Urban Development. Her was published by The Washington Post on March 6. She claimed Cuomo, summoned her to his dimly lit hotel room in Los Angeles and told the Post he embraced her with a "too long, too tight, too intimate" hug after a work event in December Hinton, who was married at the time, claimed she pulled away from Cuomo, "but he pulled her back toward his body," according to the Post.

He served as a top deputy to Cuomo in the governor's mansion for five years. Also, on Saturday, a fifth woman, Ana Liss, who served as a policy and operations aide to Cuomo from to , came forward with allegations against Cuomo that were published by The Wall Street Journal. She said the governor asked her if she had a boyfriend, called her sweetheart, touched her on her lower back at a reception and once kissed her hand as she rose from her desk. Cuomo's director of communications, Peter Ajemian, denied Hinton's to the Post, saying: "This did not happen.

Karen Hinton is a known antagonist of the Governor's who is attempting to take advantage of this moment to score cheap points with made-up allegations from 21 years ago," Ajemian said. This is reckless. The Albany Times-Union reported that a sixth woman, a current member of the governor's Executive Chamber staff, accused Cuomo of inappropriate conduct.

The staffer, who has not been named, accused the governor of inappropriately touching her late last year during an encounter at the governor's mansion after she had been summoned there to do work. She had not filed a formal complaint with the governor's office. Her claims were recently reported to the governor's counsel by other Executive Chamber employees, the Times-Union reported. As I said last week, this is very simple. I never touched anyone inappropriately. As I said last week I never made any inappropriate advances. No one ever told me at the time I made them feel uncomfortable," Cuomo said.

On Wednesday, he followed that up with a statement, saying, "As I said yesterday, I have never done anything like this. The details of this report are gut-wrenching. I am not going to speak to the specifics of this or any other allegation given the ongoing review, but I am confident in the result of the Attorney General's report. Lavine, to examine allegations of misconduct against Governor Cuomo," Heastie said in a statement. The committee will have the authority to interview witnesses, subpoena documents and evaluate evidence, as is allowed by the New York State Constitution.

The investigation would be the first step in a bid to impeach the governor. But while the Assembly investigation may start the legislature down the path toward impeachment, it also has a stalling effect. It gives the Assembly speaker control of the process and staves off calls for an immediate resolution. New York Attorney General Letitia James said the Assembly investigation will not conflict with the one her office is leading. Our investigation will continue," she said in a statement. At least members of the state Assembly and Senate, including 65 Democrats and 56 Republicans, have said Cuomo should re, according to a count by The Associated Press.

Jessica Bakeman, who worked as a part of the Capitol press corp while working for Politico New York in , accused Cuomo of behaving inappropriately with her in a first-person piece for The Cut published March She claimed that during a holiday party at the Executive Mansion, Cuomo grabbed her hand and refused to let go.

Instead he "put his other arm around my back, his hand on my waist, and held me firmly in place while indicating to a photographer he wanted us to pose for a picture. He allegedly said to her, "Am I making you uncomfortable? I thought we were going steady. She wrote: "I never thought the governor wanted to have sex with me. It wasn't about sex. It was about power. He wanted me to know that he could take my dignity away at any moment with an inappropriate comment or a hand on my waist.

The governor's attorney did not respond to ABC News' request for comment on this allegation. But Cuomo has generally denied any of the new allegations against him and urged the public to wait for the of the attorney general's investigation. Bloomberg reporter Valerie Bauman tweeted on March 18 that she observed "rampant sexism and sexual harassment" during Cuomo's tenure as New York Attorney General, from to , when she covered Albany for The Associated Press. She was 25 at the time.

She said Cuomo never touched her inappropriately or said anything she felt she could report to her boss, but "he did make me uncomfortable, as did a lot of men in Albany. During one press conference in he made "unwavering eye contact.
