Washington (CNN)A third woman has accused Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo of unwanted advances in 2019, The New York Times reported Monday, adding to an escalating crisis facing the governor in the wake of two sexual harassment allegations.

The woman, Anna Ruch, told the Times that Cuomo approached her during a crowded wedding reception in New York in 2019. Ruch told the newspaper she thanked Cuomo for his toast to the newlyweds, and in response, she says he put his hand on her bare lower back, which the Times said was exposed in an open-back dress.

When Ruch removed his hand, Cuomo allegedly told her she seemed "aggressive" as he put his hands on her cheeks, she recalled to the Times. Cuomo then asked if he could kiss her, Ruch said, and she distanced herself as he came closer.

"I was so confused and shocked and embarrassed," Ruch told the Times. "I turned my head away and didn't have words in that moment."

1. Where was she in 2019? Please. At least he was polite and asked

Let's talk about what happens at office Christmas parties every year. This is getting boring.

2. What luck! Her "friend just happened to be there to snap that pic at the precise moment !"

And as if that moment wasn't tramatic enough, she then she went looking for him to tell him just how uncomfortable it was for her!

Omfg.

Cuomo should ask for a review of her phone texts from the night in question ~

3. The news is so slow these days...

Nothing else to take up the dead space.

It's not like the US didn't have an unresolved fucking planned armed insurrection led by the sitting US President (who himself has been accused by 26 women of a range of crimes mostly falling from assault to rape with a couple of indictments thrown in) only a few weeks ago to talk about.
