Gov. Andrew Cuomo, who is facing allegations of inappropriate conduct from multiple women, said on Thursday that “feeling uncomfortable” is not harassment.
His remarks came after being questioned at a news conference about why he apologized for his behavior while maintaining he did nothing wrong.
“If I just made you feel uncomfortable, that is not harassment, that is feeling uncomfortable,” Cuomo said. “I never said anything I believed was inappropriate. I never meant to make you feel that way. You may hear it that way, you may interpret it that way. And I respect that … but harassment is not making someone feeling uncomfortable. That is not harassment.”
