Jessica Bakeman

Jessica Bakeman claimed in a first-person article for New York Magazine that she had been sexually harassed by Cuomo on several occasions since the beginning of her journalism career in 2012.

Bakeman added her vote as the seventh plaintiff, describing the governor touching inappropriately while continuing to deny all claims.

“ He took my hand, as if to shake it, then refused to let go, ” Bakeman wrote of an interaction with Cuomo saying goodnight at a holiday party in 2014 when she was only 25 years old.

“He put his other arm around my back, his hand around my waist, and held me firmly in place as he indicated to a photographer he wanted us to pose for a photo.”

Bakeman was working for what is now Politico New York at the time, claiming red flags were raised because it was her ‘job to analyze and investigate him’.

“I didn’t want a picture of him with his hands on my body and a smile on my face,” she wrote.

But I made the reflexive assessment that most women and marginalized people instinctively know, the calculation of risk and power and self-preservation. I knew it would be much easier to smile for the brief moment it takes to take a picture than it would be to challenge one of the most powerful men in the country. ‘

In an earlier incident in 2012 while working for USA Today, Bakeman also claims that Cuomo held her by his side as he told a story to her male colleagues.

“He left it there and pinned me next to him for a few minutes when he finished telling his story,” she said. I stood there, my cheeks hot, giggling nervously as my male colleagues did the same. We all knew it was wrong, but we didn’t do anything. ‘

The reporter, who now works in Florida, claimed that Cuomo “ never lets me forget I was a woman, ” because she also claimed he made frequent attempts to humiliate her, including calling her purple phone instead of her question to be answered during a press conference. .
