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.

Hidden Camera captures Principal Economist at the Federal Reserve talking about Jerome Powell’s legacy as “somebody who held the line against like, Trump.” According to hidden camera footage of Aurel Hizmo, principal economist at the Federal Reserve, the U.S. agency could have fixed inflation a while ago but refused to do so for fear of hurting President Joe Biden’s re-election efforts.

Hizmo told an undercover reporter that the Fed stopped raising the rates to tackle inflation because it could cause a recession that would likely end Biden’s 2024 campaign.

The influential agency responsible for maintaining a stable monetary system appears to not just be establishing interest rates, but to be setting policies for desired social outcomes. “Under Powell, the Fed has changed to think about equity issues, like racial issues, think about wealth inequality as part of the mandate, as part of the things we are following. Think about climate change.” Aurel Hizmo, Principal Economist at the Federal Reserve, who prior to working at the Fed was an Assistant Professor helps write speeches for Federal Reserve Board Chair Jerome Powell for the Federal Open Market Committee.

Hizmo says “Trump is just a crazy person” and conservatives are “dumb” as he describes to OMG’s American Swiper Citizen Journalist a politicized Federal Reserve Board where Powell has promoted ESG issues like climate change and “wants to be remembered in history” “as a savior.” But shhh…don’t tell anyone because Hizmo says: “I’m just really worried that I’m saying stuff that’s classified…It’s all classified.”
