“If he thinks he has a actual authorized scenario, he must go in advance and file it. These attacks are disgraceful and however a different determined charade to mask the truth: Andrew Cuomo is a serial sexual harasser,” the spokesperson added.

Kim and Clark did not instantly return requests for comment.
