ALBANY, N.Y. – Gov. Andrew Cuomo responded Tuesday to a report from the Attorney General’s Office that found he sexually harassed multiple women. He continued to deny any misconduct.

The governor maintains that he never touched anyone inappropriately, saying “the facts are much different than what has been portrayed.”

The report detailed the allegations of 11 women accusing the governor of harassment and other inappropriate conduct.

Several lawmakers publicly called for Cuomo’s resignation following the announcement, but Cuomo made no indication of any plans to step down.

Watch Cuomo’s full response below:

Cuomo's attorney Rita Glavin released an extensive 85-page position statement on behalf of Cuomo, saying in part:

"I make this statement on behalf of my client Governor Andrew M. Cuomo to begin to set the record straight about the unfair and inaccurate findings of the Attorney General’s Report.

"Regrettably, as the findings in the Report show, the investigators have directed an utterly biased investigation and willfully ignored evidence inconsistent with the narrative they have sought to weave form [sic] the outset. In coming to their conclusion, they ignored the Governor’s testimony and substantial corroborating evidence, and were not candid about that fact at a press conference during which they announced their findings."
