NY Lawmakers Demand Investigation Into Cuomo Sexual Harassment Allegations by Former Aide

Another day, another scandal for New York governor Andrew Cuomo. This time, however, it is not about covering up negligence and death counts at nursing homes due to COVID, the flailing NY economy as a result of lockdown restrictions, increasing mental health tragedies or families suffering because he won’t re-open schools. This scandal involves sexual harassment.

“A former aide to New York Governor Andrew Cuomo on Wednesday published an essay detailing alleged sexual harassment she endured while working for the governor, including unwanted kissing and touching” reports National Review.

The former deputy secretary for economic development and special adviser to the governor Lindsey Boylan published her account on Medium. Boylan wrote that Cuomo and his enabling top female aides “created a culture within his administration where sexual harassment and bullying is so pervasive that it is not only condoned but expected.” On Thursday, “a bipartisan group of state lawmakers” demanded an “independent investigation into allegations” by the former aide.

Boylan explains the governor often sought her out and requested one-on-one meetings. In one account, she details a flight during which the governor allegedly said, “Let’s play strip poker.” Boylan said in one meeting he kissed her. “We were in his New York City office on Third Avenue…As I got up to leave and walk toward an open door, he stepped in front of me and kissed me on the lips. I was in shock, but I kept walking.”

Boylan resigned September 26, 2018, and admitted she had been warned by other staffers when she joined his administration in 2015 to “be careful around the Governor.” Cuomo press secretary Caitlin Girouard denied the allegations, saying, “as we said before, Ms. Boylan’s claims of inappropriate behavior are quite simply false.”
