Trooper Files Suit. An unnamed female State Trooper has started a lawsuit against Cuomo. She alleges sexual harassment by the ex Governor. She also names Cuomo confidante Melissa DeRosa and the New York State Police. The moving papers claim he inappropriately touched her. Reaction was swift from the Cuomo camp. Spokesman Rich Azzopardi shot back, “If kissing someone on the cheek, patting someone on the back or stomach or waving hello at a public event on New Year’s Eve is actionable then we are all in trouble. Gov Cuomo will fight every attempt at cheap cash extortions and is anxious to have the dirty politics stop — we look forward to justice in a court of law.” DeRosa dismissed the action as “frivolous”. The Trooper says she found the incident to be deeply humiliating and has sought mental health counseling. Trooper Files Suit.
