Beth Cefalu ‘Eat the Whole Sausage’ Challenge from Cuomo
The latest video has come to light now, where the three-time New York Governor can be seen asking reporter Beth Cefalu to “eat the whole sausage” at the state fair.
The video shows the Democratic governor at the 2016 New York State Fair, challenging journalist Beth Cefalu to eat an entire Gianelli sausage sandwich. “I want to see you eat the whole sausage,” Cuomo can be heard telling Cefalu, as his daughter Michaela sits quietly next to him.
A now-former aide to Cuomo is seen handing Cefalu a sandwich. “I don’t know if I should eat the whole sausage in front of you, but I’m definitely going to eat it,” Cefalu responds. Cuomo then invites Cefalu to sit at his table. Before eating, Cefalu snaps a selfie with the governor while holding up her food. “There’s too much sausage in that picture,” Cuomo says, prompting laughter from others at the table.

Cuomo’s Sexual abuse allegations
Cuomo was accused on Saturday, February 27, by a second former female aide of sexual harassment. The ex-aide, Charlotte Bennett, 25, told the New York Times that she was repeatedly made to feel uncomfortable by Cuomo after she was hired in 2019 in the governor’s office. Bennett claimed that the governor asked, “questions about her sex life, whether she was monogamous in her relationships and if she had ever had sex with older men”.
