The CNN anchor has addressed the sexual harassment scandal engulfing his brother, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo.

NY Democratic Officials Call for Cuomo's Resignation Following 2nd Sexual Harassment Allegation

  NY Democratic Officials Call for Cuomo's Resignation Following 2nd Sexual Harassment Allegation At least two Democratic members of New York's state legislature urged the governor to resign on Saturday, while others insisted that an independent investigation investigate his alleged conduct.Charlotte Bennett, 25, left Cuomo's administration in November after serving as a health policy adviser. Bennett told the Times that the governor asked her if she had ever dated an older man, and said he was open to relationships with women of her age, during her time working in the administration.

"Before we start tonight, let me say something that I'm sure is very obvious to you who watch my show," the CNN anchor said on Monday night.

"And thank you for that you're straight with me. I'll be straight with you.

"Obviously, I'm aware of what's going on with my brother. And obviously, I cannot cover it because he is my brother. Now, of course, CNN has to cover it. They have covered it extensively, and they will continue to do so.

"I have always cared very deeply about these issues, and profoundly. So I just wanted to tell you that there's a lot of news going on that matters also. So let's get after that."

CNN previously banned Chris Cuomo from covering the allegations against the New York Governor that his administration underreported the number of COVID-19 deaths in the state's nursing homes.

Andrew Cuomo is accused of sexual harassment by two former aides and a third woman who claims he grabbed and kissed at a wedding in 2019. He denies the allegations.

Lindsey Boylan first accused the governor of inappropriate behavior in December. In a lengthy Medium post, she claimed he gave an unwanted kiss and frequently made comments about her appearance,

Boylan accused Cuomo of creating a culture within his administration where "sexual harassment and bullying is so pervasive that it is not only condoned but expected."

Another former aide, Charlotte Bennett, also accused Andrew Cuomo of making inappropriate comments, including asking if she had ever had sex with older men.

Fact Check: Did Cuomo Call For Lawmaker to Resign Amid Sexual Harassment Claims?

  Fact Check: Did Cuomo Call For Lawmaker to Resign Amid Sexual Harassment Claims? As New York Governor Andrew Cuomo faces calls to resign amid sexual harassment allegations, some critics recalled old statements Cuomo made when other lawmakers faced similar accusations.Two former staffers, Charlotte Bennett and Lindsey Boylan, shared experiences with the governor's alleged "pervasive harassment." This includes unflattering comments about the weight of female colleagues, inappropriate questions about romantic and sexual relationships, and nonconsensual physical advances, according to Newsweek.

"I understood that the governor wanted to sleep with me, and felt horribly uncomfortable and scared," Bennett said. "And was wondering how I was going to get out of it and assumed it was the end of my job."

The governor addressed the allegations in a statement on Sunday, when two of the three allegations had been made public.

In it, he denied ever inappropriately touching women and said that he does "tease people in what I think is a good natured way."

"I now understand that my interactions may have been insensitive or too personal and that some of my comments, given my position, made others feel in ways I never intended," Andrew Cuomo said.

"I acknowledge some of the things I have said have been misinterpreted as an unwanted flirtation. To the extent anyone felt that way, I am truly sorry about that.

"To be clear I never inappropriately touched anybody and I never propositioned anybody and I never intended to make anyone feel uncomfortable, but these are allegations that New Yorkers deserve answers to."
