The ninth woman to step forward with sexual harassment allegations against Andrew Cuomo said that Cuomo grabbed her face and kissed her cheeks, according to Fox News.

Sherry Vill, 55, said Cuomo grabbed her face and kissed her cheeks in front of her home in 2017.

“I know the difference between an innocent gesture and a sexual one,” Vill said during a virtual press conference. “I never felt as uncomfortable as I did the day Governor Cuomo came to my house. His actions were very overly sexual, highly inappropriate and disrespectful to me and my family.”

Vill shared that Cuomo told her she was beautiful and acted in a “highly flirtatious and inappropriate manner.”

Her attorney Gloria Allred said, “For years she wanted to report what Governor Cuomo did to her, but some members of her family discouraged her from filing a complaint, because they wanted to protect her and feared that if she made what happened to her public that the Governor might use his power to retaliate against her and her family,” Allred said.

“After our press conference today, we plan to contact the New York Attorney General’s office in order to inform them that Sherry is willing to cooperate in the investigation that is currently being conducted into numerous allegations of sexual harassment by the Governor,” she continued.

Cuomo’s attorney, Rita Glavin said, “During times of crisis, the Governor has frequently sought to comfort New Yorkers with hugs and kisses.”

“As I have said before, the Governor has greeted both men and women with hugs, a kiss on the cheek, forehead or hand for the past forty years.”

Vill said she later received a signed letter from Cuomo, as well as photos of their meeting at her home. In response, Glavin said more than 30 people received a “nearly identical follow-up form letter.” She added that its common for the governor’s office to follow up after an event with photos or other communication.

Cuomo faces a growing number of sexual harassment allegations starting with former aide Lindsay Boylan, who alleged that the governor attempted to kiss her in his office, which he has denied.

Cuomo has said he never touched anyone inappropriately and apologized to anyone he made feel uncomfortable in the workplace. New York attorney general Letitia James is investigating the sexual harassment allegations against Cuomo.
