Photos on Cuomo's Flickr account show him kissing and handling women at same 2017 event where woman says he 'aggressively' kissed her while touring her home

 Several photos have emerged of New York Gov Andrew Cuomo kissing and greeting women at the same 2017 event where a woman says he 'aggressively' kissed her on both cheeks inside her home. 

Sherry Vill, 55, accused Cuomo of sexual misconduct during a press conference with her attorney Gloria Allred on Monday. 

She alleges Cuomo grabbed her face and kissed her 'aggressively and in a sexual manner' on both cheeks in May 2017 while he was touring her home in Greece, near Rochester, as he inspected local flood damage.


Vill, who said she felt uncomfortable at the time, shared an image her daughter took on the day that showed Cuomo holding her face as he kissed her cheek and her attorney held up multiple photos showing the Governor inside her home. 

The same photos appear on Cuomo's Flickr account, as well as multiple others that show him kissing and greeting residents as he toured the town.

None of the women in the other photos have accused the governor of inappropriate behavior or wrongdoing.

The Flickr album appeared to be updated on Monday afternoon in the wake of Vill's press conference.  

It is not clear if any changes were made to the album or what they might have been.

DailyMail.com has contacted Cuomo's office for comment.

The photos from that album show Cuomo putting his hands on one woman's face, kissing her on the cheek and hugging her. 

In another photo, Cuomo can be seen shaking a woman's hand while gripping her elbow. 

Others show him just shaking hands with both men and women as he toured the town. 

Vill is the latest woman to come forward and accuse Cuomo of sexual misconduct or inappropriate behavior.

The New York Attorney General's office has launched a probe into the allegations, which Vill has said she wants to cooperate with. .

Cuomo has previously said he has never forced himself on anyone and that, at worst, his affectionate and playful nature may have been misinterpreted.

The governor has said his tendency to hug and kiss people as a greeting stems from his Italian-American heritage. 

While airing her allegations on Monday, Vill said she had been asked if she would let Cuomo come into her house for a flood tour photo opportunity. 

She agreed but said once he was inside, he was 'inappropriate' and 'came onto her'.  

'He looked at me, approached me, took my hand and pulled me to him. He leaned down over me and kissed my cheek,' Vill said. 

'I thought he was going to pet my dog but Instead he wedged his face between the dog and mine and kissed my other cheek in what I thought was a highly sexual manner. 

'He said, 'that's what Italians do. Kiss both cheeks.''  

Vill added that she is Italian and would never greet a stranger that way. 

She said that after the initial kissing on her cheeks, he kissed her on another cheek again in front of the house and told her she was beautiful.

'He leaned down on top of me, he forcibly grabbed my face and kissed my cheek - again in a very aggressive manner - I felt like I was being manhandled. 

'I couldn't use my other hand to stop him. I was holding my dog with my other and the way he looked at me. I felt he was acting in a highly flirtatious and inappropriate manner. There was nothing I could do. 

'I felt as though he was coming on to me in my own home,' she said.  

After the initial visit, she said she received a letter from Cuomo's office with photos of the pair that his office took, and that he invited her to an event. She said no one else in the family was invited and that it raised 'alarm bells'. 

Vill is not pressing charges nor is she suing. 

She said she only wants to cooperate with the Attorney General's investigation into him and that she feels what happened to her should be included in it. 

She is the ninth woman to accuse the embattled governor of inappropriate behavior.

A series of women, some who worked for Cuomo, have accused him of using his position of authority to sexually harass them with unwanted touching including hugs or kisses, inappropriate remarks about their sexual lives and physical appearance and comments they interpreted as gauging their interest in sexual relations. 

Among his accusers are two aides who still work in the governor's office. One, who has yet to be publicly identified, said the governor groped her at the Executive Mansion last summer.
