Brittany Commisso, the 33-year-old executive assistant who Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo has accused of lying about an incident in which she said he groped her breast at the Executive Mansion, revealed her identity publicly in an exclusive interview with the Times Union and CBS News.
She said the governor is the one being untruthful.
Commisso referred to remarks the governor had made in recent weeks: “To paraphrase … he said if you give New Yorkers the truth, and you give New Yorkers the facts — the good, the bad, the ugly — they will do the right thing,’ ” she said. “I would say, governor, this is the truth; these are the facts. And it’s your turn to do the right thing. And that right thing is to resign and to tell the truth.”
Key moments from a three-hour interview with Commisso, recorded Friday by CBS at the Times Union’s Hearst Media Center in Colonie, are scheduled to be broadcast on “CBS This Morning” early Monday. Jericka Duncan conducted the interview for CBS News.
