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

Another day, another scandal for New York governor Andrew Cuomo

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.”

BLM DC Makes Vile Comment about Officers Called ‘Heroes’ When Shot in the Line of Duty

A suspect is still at large after opening fire on police officers in Northwest D.C. Sunday night. One officer was shot, and fortunately suffered non-life-threatening injuries and was released from the hospital after being treated.

Black Lives Matter took the opportunity to make vicious remarks about cops who are targeted. The D.C. Police Department gave a press conference detailing the situation that had occurred and applauded the police department for “courageously” chasing the suspect before he was able to evade police.

The Police Chief asked for citizens to avoid the area where the suspect was last seen and encouraged the public to reach out to their department with any information that could be helpful to the case.

Black Lives Matter took the opportunity to promote its #StopMPD campaign and warn against “copaganda.” Black Lives Matter DC’s official Twitter account posted:

“This is the point we’ve been making for months, Look at the reaction and coverage tonight. Tearjerker press conferences and proclamations of heroes coming soon. Imagine if people knew these folks’ names. Being Black in DC is more dangerous than any job.”

In a follow-up tweet, the account stated “This isn’t to say these scenarios represent what happened tonight, but it does explain our skepticism, interest in details, and highlights the difference in how people talk and act when an officer is hurt vs when they hurt a Black person. No one asks what the cop did wrong.”

Another Victim Thrown on NYC Subway Tracks, 62-Year-Old Man Suffered Lacerated Leg

NYC Subway

Just over a week ago, 40-year-old Asian American Michelle Alyssa Go was pushed to her death in front of a train on the subway tracks of New York City’s Times Square. Another individual was shoved onto the tracks on Sunday.

New York Police Department said both attacks were unprovoked and called upon leadership officials to do more to protect the city’s citizens. Sunday’s victim was a 62-year-old man whose name has not been publicly released.

He was pushed onto the tracks in Lower Manhattan’s southbound train at the Fulton Street subway station. He sustained a leg laceration and police said there have not yet been any arrests in connection with the incident.

Go’s attacker was identified as Martial Simon, a 61-year-old homeless man with a history of violence and mental health issues. He was charged with second-degree murder. The New York Times reported that shortly before Go’s death, another woman saw him acting suspiciously and later told police she was afraid he was going to push her onto the tracks.

Subway attacks are the latest increase of issues that face Democrat New York Mayor Eric Adams. Adams has pledged to fight crime but has already implemented plans to minimize punishments for criminals in an effort to keep young men, particularly of color, out of prison.

Despite overall subway riding being down since the pandemic, the subway system has seen an increase in assaults last year. “According to the NYPD, 461 felony assaults were reported on the subway system in 2021, of which 30 involved a person being pushed onto the subway tracks. That’s an increase from the year before when there were 26 reported subway-pushing incidents” reports The Washington Post.

New York’s liberal leadership have been vocal supporters of the defund the police movement and saw the city turn to the wild west with protestors taking over the city during the Black Lives Matter movement shortly after George Floyd’s death. Rising crime and gun violence have plagued the city.
