New York Governor Andrew Cuomo was caught lounging poolside with his secretary Stephanie Benton at the Executive Mansion in Albany despite calls for his resignation, impending impeachment, and several criminal investigations into his serial sex-harassment incidents.
In the photos released by the New York Post, he was seen relaxing on a chair, feet up. Near him the secretary typed on a laptop sitting on the ground by the pool, wearing a summer jumper and flip-flops.
A spokesman for the governor declined to comment.
