New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) is fighting the release of an investigative report alleging sexual harassment by publishing photos of him hugging politicians and politicians hugging people.

The photos were published in Cuomo’s 85 page written response to the investigative report in which former President Obama is pictured hugging failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

Other photos in the report show Cuomo kissing Al Gore, daughter Michaela Kennedy-Cuomo, Rochester Mayor Lovely Warren, his father, and former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie (R).

Governor Cuomo rejected the findings of the independent investigative report by New York Attorney General Letitia James (D) on Tuesday, “The facts are much different than what has been portrayed,” he said.

“I never touched anyone inappropriately or made inappropriate sexual advances,” he stated. “That is just not who I am or who I have ever been.”

James announced her investigation “revealed conduct that corrodes the very fabric and character of our state government and shines light on injustice that can be present at the highest level of government.”

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio (D), Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY), Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY), New York Reps. Tom Suozzi (D-NY), Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY), and Greg Meeks (D-NY) have all called for Cuomo resignation.

CNN anchor Chris Cuomo advised Andrew Cuomo and then testified to New York’s Attorney General on allegations of sexual misconduct before the investigation found the governor sexually harassed multiple women.

The report says Chris Cuomo testified in the investigation in which “Chris Cuomo explained” to investigators “that there was discussion about remedial measures” Andrew Cuomo “should take in light of the sexual harassment allegations, but some people had taken the position that ‘they should just wait.’”
