We are learning new details in the Sam Hoyt sexual harassment scandal after a phone call with the alleged victim, who came forward to report sexual harassment against the former state Assemblyman from Buffalo.

Plus, attorney Lindy Korn -- who is not involved in this case -- speaks about how hard it is for those who come forward to report sexual harassment. 

Updated: Statement from Dani Lever, press secretary to Gov. Andrew Cuomo:
"As we previously said,  when made aware of these allegations, ‎we ordered investigations by three separate entities - two of which still have ongoing inquiries - and Mr. Hoyt was ordered to have no contact with the complainant. With these investigations still pending, he left state service."
