Democratic Governor of New York Andrew Cuomo addresses the Democratic National Nominating Convention-Cuomo Sexually Harassed-ss-featured

A former aide of New York Governor Andrew Cuomo came out with allegations that Cuomo sexually harassed her while working for him. Lindsey Boylan, who was Cuomo’s former deputy secretary for economic development and special adviser to the governor, said Cuomo constantly sought her out. He asked staffers to arrange meetings with her where he made inappropriate comments. This included an unwanted kiss in the Governor’s office and other behavior that made me nauseous going to work.

Cuomo Sexually Harassed Boylen

Lindsey Boylan, who eventually resigned from the Democratic governor’s team, worked for Cuomo between 2015 to 2018. “I’m compelled to tell my story because no woman should feel forced to hide their experiences of workplace intimidation, harassment and humiliation — not by the Governor or anyone else,” she wrote in an essay on Medium

The discomfort started when her boss told her the Governor had a crush on her. Stephanie Benton, Director of the Governor’s Offices, told Boylan in an email that the Governor suggested I look up images of Lisa Shields. his rumored former girlfriend. Since then, the governor began calling her “Lisa” in front of colleagues. It was degrading. Another incident happened after Boylan and Cuomo had a one-on-one briefing. Cuomo stepped in front of Boylen as she was about to leave and kissed her on the lips.

Cuomo Would Go Out Of His Way

In her online post, Boylan also recounted episodes where Cuomo sexually harassed her. The governor “would go out of his way to touch me on my lower back, arms and legs,” and shred images that supported her story. Previously, Cuomo denied the allegations of sexual harassment. Boylan already made the allegations last year but did not share the details she did now.  “Look, I fought for and I believe a woman has the right to come forward and express her opinion and express issues and concerns that she has. But it’s just not true,” said Cuomo during a news conference.

In one of the post images, it shows Boylan texting her mother about the time Governor Cuomo asked Boylan’s boss if she would attend an event he was going to. “He is a sexist pig and you should avoid being alone with him!” Boylan’s mother texted her. In one 2017 incident where Boylan shared a plane ride with the Governor, he suggested that they play strip poker. At the time of the question, a press aide and a state trooper sat next to her. She responded “THat’s exactly what I was thinking,” sarcastically. 

‘Simply False’

Caitlin Girouard, the spokesperson for Cuomo, reiterated that Boylan’s claims aren’t true. Boylan’s “claims of inappropriate behavior are quite simply false” and said the plane conversation did not happen. She pointed to witnesses on the same flight that they never heard the conversation described by Boylan take place. 

Boylan, a Democrat, ran unsuccessfully last year for a seat in Congress. Now, she is running for Manhattan borough president. Meanwhile, several NY Democrats already issued statements about the allegations. “Clearly, there is no place for this type of behavior in the workplace or anywhere else,” said Andrea Stewart-Cousins, NY State Senate majority leader. NY GOP Representative Elise Stefanik, a Cuomo critic, issued a fiery statement calling for the governor to resign. “Any elected official who does not immediately call for his resignation is complicit in allowing a sexual predator to continue leading the great state of New York,” Stefanik said.

Cuomo Already Under Fire

Prior to the allegations, Cuomo is already under fire for a number of issues. Both Democrats and Republicans are calling out the Governor for allegedly withholding data on coronavirus deaths in the state’s nursing homes. He is also accused of frequent bullying, among them State Assemblyman Ron Kim. Cuomo reportedly threatened to destroy Kim’s career following disagreements over the nursing home scandal. They are both Democrats.

  • Avatar Victor Laszlo says:

    Andrew Cuomo is actually George Costanza…”it’s not a lie if he believes it”. This guy is a POS criminal. More employees in his administration need to come out of the closet in force. They need to do a group press conference. It is time for Cuomo to be taken down and put out with the trash.

  • Avatar Bulinda Moore says:

    WOW–the dogs have come out after him since he did a job on Trump. They are not going to let The Governor get away with “doing his job”. So here we go with sexual harassment’s from a young woman who may have been but I seriously believe this is a ploy against Cuomo. Fight Sir as you know your strength–they are coming after you.

  • Avatar Just Sayin' says:

    What a bunch of sheep. Everyone here is condemning Cuomo over one woman’s accusation, which hasn’t been proven or confirmed through our legal system. Yet everyone turns a blind eye to the dozens of women’s accusations regarding Trump’s inappropriate behavior. Keep drinking the Kool Aid.

  • Avatar Chas says:

    Beside the accusation of this woman, but the thosand’s of deaths this man sent people to, with no regard for life…
    Iam sure China Joe will STILL take him into his administration along with the rest of the misfits. Then he will write another book telling us how he is going to president someday because he deserves it! I saw through this guy the day he opened his big pompass mouth while talking down to New Yorkers and telling the world how great he is. My god help his sole!!!!

  • Avatar Vicki says:

    This low life is a bully and a liar but you have to be a liar to be in politics. His lying and sneaky ways have caused people to die impeachment is necessary. And about this women and her harassment complaint good for her for calling him out I am sure there are more also these people who have been harassed and threatened by this bully need to let the public know what he has done to them. His authority has gone to his head so it is time to knock him down what a cold hearted bastard. It figures that Joe Biden would think he would be great in his administration, Joe cannot even run our country they should both go but we only get a chance at one so lets get it done. OUT WITH CUOMO !!!!

  • Avatar yvonne says:

    Where are all feminists who yelled :”WE trust the woman!” Where is Hillary, Pelosi,
    Ilhan Omar, Tlalib, AOC, Orpah, Whoopie?

  • Avatar David says:

    Well he is a democrat, most of them are sexual deviants. EVERYTHING about Trump is truth, yet somehow when a democrat does something, it’s false and it’s a partisan attack. Maybe it is, but this woman is a democrat, who worked for democrats! Oh and jist sayin’, what a hypocrite! Trump assaulted dozens? Guess you were present and know that to be true?! Lol! Afraid you’re the one drinking the kool aid! Democrats have wasted billions on trying one made up accusation after another. Now, they’re making his tax returns public and wasting NY taxpayer money on that. Hopefully your tax returns are next! And this will be a great precedent. Next they can get Cuomos, Pelosi, Schumers, Bidens(X2) Obama(came out of the White House 3,000 % wealthier!) Considering all of the people moving out of that dump, and the clown of a Governor begging on tv( truly embarrassing) for people to move back. He’ll even take them out to dinner, i’m sure on taxpayers dime! He sure is good at being unprepared for a pandemic and killing a lot of elderly people! Why are all of the dem run cities and states such cesspools? Somehow it’s the “racist” republicans fault yet they haven’t controlled anything in years. In NY’s case, at least 15 years! Hey New Yorkers, keep voting for the democrat swamp rats that ruin your state! Good job!

  • Avatar Anonymous says:

    Let us all consider this, the Democratic party is “in so deep” if one link falls out of that fence, then the whole fence is gonna collapse. Feel me, ya’ll? Why do we think that PRESIDENT Trump is feared so badly by them and they would go to any means to have had him removed from office. Yes, Trump is very hard to take at times, I agree, HOWEVER, look at gas prices, PA pipeline, stocks down and this is just the beginning for this brood of evildoers!! Anyone with any Christian background at all, saw the writing on the wall long b4 this happened. Next, Joey Boy, will be taken out of office and guess what they will try, Harris as President and who else but Pelosi for VP. Well, well, now you Biden supports, how bout dat?

  • Avatar CZR2181 says:

    Governor Cuomo and the entire Democratic Administration need to be brought up on charges of fraud election fraud. Joe Biden and Hunter Biden also need to be brought up on charges. And now we’re stuck with the Democratic Administration which is absolutely the worst we’ve already lost 10 million jobs in the pipeline he has re-engaged to Ron and allowing them to create a nuclear weapon which of course israel not going to put up with. AND they shouldn’t this is a very dangerous move and Joe Biden is a weak president and Kamala Harris does not have the experience under her belt to take on the country. swamp is getting deeper and deeper and now we also have an issue with these tech companies blocking information suppressing information rewriting information renaming words to desensitize us from reality
