NEW YORK — A former aide to New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo who is now running for Manhattan borough president accused the Democratic governor of sexual harassment.
Lindsey Boylan tweeted Sunday that she was sexually harassed by Cuomo “for years.”
Yes, @NYGovCuomo sexually harassed me for years. Many saw it, and watched.— Lindsey Boylan (@LindseyBoylan) December 13, 2020
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.
Boylan worked for the Cuomo administration from March 2015 to October 2018. She served first as executive vice president of Empire State Development and then as a special adviser to Cuomo for economic development.
Cuomo’s press secretary Caitlin Girouard said there was “simply no truth to these claims.”
Boylan did not immediately respond to messages from The Associated Press.
