Former Aide to Cuomo – Many People Saw Me Being Sexually Harassed By The Governor

A former aide to Andrew Cuomo accused the New York Governor of sexual harassment, saying it took place over many years while she worked in his administration.

Lindsey Boylan, who is now running for Manhattan borough president, alleged that the Democrat governor “harassed” her over her looks and criticized her performance, which she says was due to her gender.

“Yes, [Andrew Cuomo] sexually harassed me for years,” Boylan wrote in a multiple tweet statement. “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,” she continued. “Or would it be both in the same conversation? This was the way for years.”

Andrew Cuomo Accused of Sexual Harassment

Boylan, who worked in Cuomo’s administration between 2015 and 2018, said people saw what was happening and did nothing to stop it.

“Not knowing what to expect what’s the most upsetting part aside from knowing that no one would do a damn thing even when they saw it,” she continued. “No one. And I *know* I am not the only woman.”

Boylan added that she was “angry” to have been put in the position.

“I hate that some men, like [Cuomo] abuse their power.”

I’m angry to be put in this situation at all. That because I am a woman, I can work hard my whole life to better myself and help others and yet still fall victim as countless women over generations have. Mostly silently.

I hate that some men, like @NYGovCuomo abuse their power.

Last week, Boylan railed against the New York governor yet again, claiming that his office was the “most toxic team environment” that she’d ever experienced.

“Most toxic team environment? Working for [Andrew Cuomo],” she tweeted.

“I’ve had many jobs. Waitressing at [Friendlys] as a teenager was an infinitely more respectful environment. Even when I had bad customers who tipped poorly.”

“If people weren’t deathly afraid of him, they’d be saying the same thing and you’d already know the stories,” claimed Boylan.

Most toxic team environment? Working for @NYGovCuomo.

Joe Biden Considering Naming Cuomo As Attorney General

The accusations of sexual harassment and a toxic work environment come as reports have surfaced that President-elect Joe Biden is considering Andrew Cuomo as his attorney general.

Bloomberg News reported last week that Cuomo was on a shortlist of candidates which also includes Alabama Senator Doug Jones, U.S. Circuit Court Judge Merrick Garland, and former Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates.

This allegation may knock Cuomo out of contention for Attorney General. It is hard to evaluate such claims but there may not be time to resolve it before the pick is made. It was supposed to be made last week…

Perhaps also an impediment to his being chosen for AG is the fact that Cuomo has been embroiled in a coronavirus scandal which many believe cost thousands of senior citizens their lives at the hands of the pandemic.

The Democrat governor issued an executive order in March that critics say forced nursing homes to take on patients that had tested positive for coronavirus.

The spread inside those nursing homes was devastating, and Cuomo oversaw the state which had – by far – the most deaths from the pandemic in the United States.

A sexual harassment claim isn’t going to help his chances either.
