NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — The woman who accused New York City Comptroller Scott Stringer of sexual abuse and harassment has filed a complaint with the state Attorney General’s office.

Jean Kim alleges Stringer assaulted her 20 years ago when he was a member of the state Assembly and running for New York City Public Advocate.

Kim’s attorney filed a formal complaint Tuesday morning.

Stringer has denied the accusations and a spokesperson said in a statement, “We welcome examination of this false allegation by any independent third party, whether that be a government agency or journalist.”
