GOVERNOR Andrew Cuomo had a staff member take his mandatory workplace sexual harassment training course and signed the certificate as if he had completed it, one of his accusers claims.
The New York governor’s former aide Charlotte Bennett, 25, made the allegation in a bombshell interview aired on CBS on Friday night.

“In 2019, he did not take the sexual harassment training,” Bennett told host Norah O’Donnell.
O’Donnell asked, “How do you know that?”
“I was there,” Bennett replied.
“I heard Stephanie, say, ‘I can’t believe I’m doing this for you,’” Bennett said, referring to Cuomo’s office director Stephanie Benton.
Bennett said she was “making a joke about the fact that she was completing the training for him” when she “heard her at the end ask him to sign the certificate.”
Bennett’s claim runs counter to Cuomo’s statement on the matter on Wednesday.
Asked by a reporter if he had done the sexual harassment training, Cuomo replied: “The short answer is yes.”
The governor’s office in a statement told CBS that Benton “categorically denies the exchange” and said it “is not true.”
