    A new report commissioned by the New York State Assembly found “overwhelming evidence” that former Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo sexually harassed state employees. The report, released Monday, was ordered by State Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie as part of an impeachment inquiry into the sexual harassment allegations, the purposeful under-counting of nursing home COVID-19 deaths and Cuomo’s instruction that state employees contribute to his book during work hours. Cuomo resigned from office in August rather than face impeachment. He has been accused of sexual harassment by at least eleven women, including multiple assistants in his office and a state trooper on his protective detail. A report released by state Attorney General Letitia James buttressed those claims, and the former governor was charged with a misdemeanor sex crime in October.

    A New York state trooper has been charged in the death of an 11-year-old Brooklyn girl after he allegedly used his police cruiser to intentionally ram into her family's SUV. Christopher Baldner was indicted on charges of second-degree murder, manslaughter and reckless endangerment in Ulster County Court Wednesday for the December 2020 crash that killed Monica Goods, 11. According to the indictment, the Goods family was traveling in a Dodge Journey, driven by father Tristan Goods, on the New York State Thruway - near mile marker 92 - on December 22 when Baldner pulled the vehicle over for speeding. Tristan claims an argument broke out, Baldner lost his temper, and released pepper spray into the vehicle. The husband and father of two, who said he feared for his life, sped off, prompting a pursuit that ended when Baldner rammed his cruiser into the rear of the family's SUV twice. The second strike caused the car to hit a guard rail, flip over several times and eject Monica from her seat - killing her - before coming to a rest upside down. ...

Quid pro Cuomo: Gov makes last-ditch attempt to avoid impeachment A major union representing New York State Police officers demanded that Gov. Andrew Cuomo immediately resign Monday, after a state probe found he sexually harassed a female trooper assigned to his protective detail.  “As law enforcement professionals charged with investigating serious crimes in New York State, some of NYSPIA’s members are also responsible for providing protective detail for the Governor,” the New York State Police Investigators Association said in a statement.  “Having to continue to protect the Governor under the current circumstances puts our members in an extremely difficult position,” the union said. “We request that management of the Governor’s detail be immediately transferred to the Division of State Police. This situation clearly demonstrates that the Governor’s control of all aspects of who serves on his protective detail leads to opportunities for...
    At least four local prosecutors have requested materials from the New York Attorney General's investigation into sexual harassment allegations against Governor Andrew Cuomo. District attorneys from three counties on Wednesday announced they had requested information about alleged incidents that occurred in their counties, one day after the Albany County district attorney announced he had requested that information.  The independent investigation by Attorney General Letitia James' office found that Cuomo sexually harassed at least 11 women, including members of his own staff and a state trooper, and that "such conduct was part of a pattern of behavior that extended to his interactions with others outside of State government." The report describes a series of incidents involving the 11 women that occurred in Albany, the state capital, as well as in other locations throughout the state.  In a letter to James, Westchester District Attorney Mimi Rocah cited conduct involving the state trooper as cause to request the materials.

    NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — A New York state trooper is taking a stand against the department, alleging lack of respect for female employees and unfair treatment of pregnant women. “I’m having a little girl, and how does it look for me as a mother if I’m not fighting for her rights as a woman,” New York State Police Trooper Schashuna Whyte told CBS2’s Jenna DeAngelis. With her third child on the way, Whyte says she’s putting her foot down, filing a discrimination complaint against the New York State Police. Whyte joined the department in 2016 and was pregnant with her second child a year later. “I learned of the fact that we don’t have maternity leave at that time. I was in shock,” she said. She was also shocked to find there was no time allotted in her 12-hour shift to pump her breastmilk and no set place to do it. She’d pump in the locker room, her patrol car or sometimes not at all. “If you don’t get to pump a certain amount of times per day, of course,...
