Lindsey Boylan tweeted that Cuomo “sexually harassed me for years,” adding that “many saw it, and watched”.
She said she never knew what to expect. Would she be questioned on her work or harassed because of her looks.
Boylan had accused Andrew Cuomo before but now she is going into specifics about the harassment.
“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. No one. And I *know* I am not the only woman. 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.”
Cuomo has denied her accusations but based on his cover up of nursing home deaths, he is not the most credible person you will ever meet. I would not go as far as to say he is lying but I will say it is a possibility.
Cuomo was at one time being considered to fill the job of Attorney General for Joe Biden. Possibly because of his gift of the cover-up. Hunter might need that. I have no doubt Merrick Garland can handle that.
Cuomo said of the allegations:
“Yeah, I heard about the tweet and what it said about comments that I had made and it’s not true. 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.”
On Wednesday, Boylan wrote a lengthy article on Medium detailing her allegations against Cuomo, beginning with a suggestion the government made while the two were on his taxpayer-funded jet in which he suggested they play “strip poker.”
“That’s exactly what I was thinking,” Boylan said she responded, claiming her statement was made “sarcastically and awkwardly” and that she “tried to play it cool.”
“Governor Andrew Cuomo has created a culture within his administration where sexual harassment and bullying is so pervasive that it is not only condoned but expected. His inappropriate behavior toward women was an affirmation that he liked you, that you must be doing something right. He used intimidation to silence his critics. And if you dared to speak up, you would face consequences,” Boylan wrote.
