Andrew Cuomo used campaign funds to pay attorney in sexual harassment case, disclosure shows


Gov. Andrew Cuomo used campaign funds to pay the attorney representing him in his sexual harassment case despite previously stating that he would use state financing to pay for his legal fees.

Cuomo’s reelection campaign, “Andrew Cuomo for New York,” gave Glavin PLLC, a New York-based law firm, $111,774 on May 3 and $173,098 on June 2, according to disclosures released by New York’s Board of Elections on Friday. That same June day, Cuomo told reporters that he would use taxpayer funding rather than campaign finances for his legal defense amid the New York State Assembly’s “impeachment investigation” into claims of sexual harassment against the governor.

“The way it works is the Executive Chamber has retained a counsel, and that is a state expense, [as] it has been in every investigation, so that’s where we are now,” he said at New York City’s Javits Center on June 2.
