SYRACUSE, N.Y. (WWNY) - Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s first open press event in months was met with questions about the investigation into sexual harassment claims lodged by current and former employees.

Calls for him to resign have become less frequent in the months since a string of reports concerning his treatment and alleged unwelcome touching came out.

Asked by a reporter Monday about an investigation underway by Attorney General Letitia James, Cuomo remained defiant.

“If Tish James’ report comes back and finds the contrary, considering that you’ve said zero tolerance for sexual harassment in this state,” the reporter asked, “will you discipline yourself or consider resigning?”

“The report can’t say anything different,” Cuomo said, “because I didn’t do anything wrong.”
