Apple Running for Senate. Albany County Sheriff Craig Apple is throwing his hat into the ring. He made headlines by charging Cuomo with forcibly groping a female aide. Britanny Comisso alleged the former Governor sexually harassed her. The charges were later dropped by the Albany District Attorney. Cuomo uses this to claim he has been fully exonerated. There were irregularities with Apple’s case. He levied charges before consulting the DA. Clearly it was bungled and mishandled. Cuomo meanwhile got off scott free. Apple Running for Senate. It remains to be seen whether he has been irrevocably tarnished by the Cuomo scandals !!
