Former Aide to Gov. Cuomo Accuses Him of Sexual Harassment
A former aide to New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo accused him of sexual harassment on Sunday.
Lindsey Boylan, who worked for the Cuomo administration from 2015 to 2018 and is currently running for Manhattan Borough President, made the accusation on Twitter, writing that the alleged conduct went on “for years” and that “many saw it, and watched.”
“I could never anticipate what to expect: would I be grilled on my work (which was very good) or harassed about my looks. Or would it be both in the same conversation? This was the way for years,” she continued.
On Twitter, Boylan explained why she would not be speaking to the press regarding her accusation.
Earlier this month, Boylan described her experience working for Cuomo as “beyond toxic.”
On Saturday, Boylan asked President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris to reconsider Cuomo as one of the contenders for attorney general.
“There are fewer things more scary than giving this man, who exists without ethics, even more control. I saw how he wielded power for years. He takes advantage of people, including me. I hope @JoeBiden & @KamalaHarris don’t do this,” she wrote on Twitter.
A spokesperson for Cuomo denied the allegations.
“There is simply no truth to these claims,” Cuomo’s press secretary, Caitlin Girouard said on Sunday.
