Amid sexual assault allegations and a statement in which he admitted to inappropriate behavior, creepy video has re-surfaced of New York Governor Andrew Cuomo daring a reporter the eat a sausage in front of him.
The video is from the 2016 NY State Fair.
After the video went viral Sunday, the reporter involved, Beth Cefalu, insisted the interaction with the Governor was not inappropriate.
‘I was not pressured/harassed this is two people enjoying the one event – the NYS fair – that gives them a little more freedom to be informal. Its really sad it’s being turned into anything more,’ Cefalu wrote on Twitter. ‘It’s really sad that any media will turn fun at the fair into some sleazy scandal that it wasn’t.’

This is why people hate “the media” misleading headlines and one-sided articles twisting reality. It’s really sad that any media will turn fun at the fair into some sleazy scandal that it wasn’t.
