The demonstration happened on Wednesday, stretching more than two blocks down Manhattan's First Avenue, as donors visited the school.
The former governor was accused of kissing two women on the cheek in a way that made them uncomfortable. But District Attorney Mimi Rocah said the incidents don’t rise to the level of a crime.
