Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Huffpost.com: “Chris Cuomo Denies Sexual Misconduct Allegations Against Him After CNN Firing”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Anchor Chris Cuomo has denied a sexual misconduct allegation made against him after CNN fired him on Saturday for helping to defend his brother, Andrew Cuomo, in the then-governor’s own sexual misconduct investigation.

The sexual misconduct allegation against Chris Cuomo, one of the network’s prime time anchors before his firing, came after he was the subject of a separate investigation by the New York attorney general, who concluded that the younger Cuomo brother helped the governor defend himself against an increasing number of sexual misconduct allegations. The allegation against Cuomo was first reported by The New York Times.

“In the wake of public sexual harassment allegations against former Governor Andrew Cuomo, Chris Cuomo looked directly into the camera and told viewers of Cuomo Prime Time, ‘I have always cared very deeply about these issues and profoundly so. I just wanted to tell you that,’” prominent lawyer Debra S. Katz said in a statement released on Sunday.

“Subsequently, the Attorney General released jaw-dropping documentary evidence demonstrating that Chris Cuomo played an active role in attempting to smear women whom the Attorney General concluded had made serious allegations of sexual harassment and sexual misconduct against the Governor,” she continued. “Hearing the hypocrisy of Chris Cuomo’s on-air words and disgusted by his efforts to try and discredit these women, my client retained counsel to report his serious sexual misconduct against her to CNN.”

Katz said that she informed CNN on Wednesday of the allegation against Cuomo by her client, who the Times reported is a former junior colleague at another network. By Friday, Katz said she was “in discussions with CNN” about providing documentary evidence of the sexual misconduct allegation and making the accuser available for an interview with the network’s outside counsel.
