New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo denied an investigation that found that he sexually harassed several women.

He denied the allegations in a video Bill Clinton style.

“I never touched anyone inappropriately or made inappropriate sexual advances,” Cuomo said. “I am 63 years old. I’ve lived my entire adult life in public view. That is just not who I am.”

The governor then said he was being targeted.

“Politics and bias are interwoven throughout every aspect of this investigation,” Cuomo said. “One would be naive to think otherwise, and New Yorkers are not naive.”

He also addressed a photo on the front page of The NY Times where he was holding a woman’s face as she made a face showing she was uncomfortable.

Cuomo says the gesture was “meant to convey warmth, nothing more.”

“For that, I apologize,” said Cuomo. “I now understand that there are generational or cultural perspectives that frankly I hadn’t fully appreciated, and I have learned from this.”
