Former Aide Accuses Cuomo Of Sexual Harassment; “I Know I Am Not The Only Woman”

While he continues to bask in the glory of high praise for his coronavirus “leadership” that has resulted in celebrity treatment from the media, there are potentially dark clouds on the horizon for New York Governor Andrew Cuomo.

On Sunday, a former aide to Cuomo dropped a bomb right on top of “St. Andrew of COVID” by accusing him of sexually assaulting her and for good measure, added that “and I know that I am not the only woman.”

In a tweet that was quickly picked up by media, Lindsey Boylan who toiled under the authoritarian Democrat for over three years said that he regularly made inappropriate comments about her appearance.

According to Boylan:

“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 added:

“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.”

The tweets come days before Cuomo’s celebrity-laden “Birthday Bash” virtual shindig where those who plunk down up to $10,000 will be able to schmooze with the likes of Whoopi Goldberg, foul-mouthed fake tough guy Robert DeNiro and wannabe Mafia don Cuomo himself.

Via The Associated Press, “Former development aide accuses Cuomo of sexual harassment”:

A former aide to New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo who is now running for Manhattan borough president accused him of sexual harassment in a series of tweets Sunday, saying he made inappropriate comments about her appearance.

Lindsey Boylan tweeted that the Democratic governor “sexually harassed me for years. 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.

Boylan, 36, worked for the Cuomo administration from March 2015 to October 2018, serving first as executive vice president of Empire State Development, and then as a special adviser to Cuomo for economic development.

She did not provide details of the alleged harassment and didn’t immediately respond to messages from The Associated Press. Boylan later tweeted, “To be clear: I have no interest in talking to journalists. I am about validating the experience of countless women and making sure abuse stops.”

Messages seeking comment were left with spokespeople for Cuomo.

The swaggering Cuomo has a reputation for being a bully, just ask New Yorkers who have been mercilessly crushed by his punishing lockdowns.

If accurate, Boylan’s accusation could open the floodgates for other women to come forward, not a good look for a man who is reportedly in the final four at the top of the list to be attorney general in a Biden-Harris administration.

Democrats cheered the #MeToo movement but like Frankenstein’s monster, it quickly turned on them and this time it may be Cuomo whose scalp ends up on the wall.
