After a second woman brought sexual harassment allegations against New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi called the charges from both women "credible," Fox News has reported.

"The women who have come forward with serious and credible charges against Governor Cuomo deserve to be heard and to be treated with dignity," Pelosi said. "The independent investigation must have due process and respect for everyone involved."

Charlotte Bennett, a health policy adviser in the adminstration of the governor until November, told The New York Times that Cuomo asked her inappropriate questions about her sex life.

Her allegations came just days after Lindsey Boylan, a former deputy secretary for economic development and special adviser to the governor, accused Cuomo of subjecting her to an unwanted kiss and inappropriate comments.

Cuomo has denied all of the allegations.

The claims of harassment represent a worsening crisis for the Democrat governor, who only a few months ago was at the height of his popularity as he was widely hailed for his leadership during the coronavirus pandemic.

Before the harassment allegations, Cuomo’s reputation had already began to crumble in recent weeks over revelations that his administration underreported coronavirus deaths in nursing homes.

This came to light after a state assemblyman went public with complaints that the governor had threatened to harm him politically over statements he made to the media. This led to other politicians telling their stories about having also been bullied by Cuomo.
