Andrew Cuomo to be charged over alleged groping of former aide: source

Expected to be arrested next week.

Disgraced ex-Gov. Andrew Cuomo is expected to be arrested next week and charged with a misdemeanor in the alleged groping of a former aide, The Post has learned.

The anticipated charge is the result of a probe by Albany County District Attorney David Soares, a source briefed in the matter said Thursday.

A spokesman for the state Office of Court Administration confirmed that a misdemeanor complaint against Cuomo “has been filed in Albany City Court.”

“As this is a sex crime, a redacted complaint will be available shortly,” spokesman Lucian Chalfen added.

Cuomo’s looming arrest is believed to be the reason that Attorney General Letitia James decided to tell a key union leader on Wednesday that she’ll launch a campaign for governor “shortly,” the source briefed on the matter said.
