NEW YORK — NEW YORK (AP) — A second former aide has come forward with sexual harassment allegations against New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo. 

The Democratic governor responded Saturday with a statement saying he never made advances toward her and never intended to be inappropriate. 

Charlotte Bennett was a health policy adviser in the Democratic governor’s administration until November.

She told The New York Times that Cuomo asked her inappropriate questions about her sex life, including whether she had ever had sex with older men. 

Another former aide, Lindsey Boylan, recently accused Cuomo of subjecting her to unwanted kissing and inappropriate comments.

Cuomo denied the allegations.
