One of the women who has accused embattled New York Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo of sexual harassment is a current staffer named Brittany Commisso.

Referred to as “Executive Assistant #1” in State Attorney General Tish James’ scathing report released last week, Commisso alleges the governor groped her at the Executive Mansion in November. She has come forward and identified herself this week in an exclusive interview with the Times Union and CBS News.

On this special episode of “The Eagle,” we’ll hear from Commisso herself, as well as from Capitol Bureau Managing Editor Brendan Lyons, who broke the initial story of Commisso’s allegations in April.
