Lindsey Boylan, who is running for Manhattan borough president, claims Cuomo harassed her “for years” when she worked in his administration.
A former adviser to New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo accused him of sexually harassing her “for years” while she worked in his administration.
Lindsey Boylan, who is running for Manhattan borough president, made her allegations on Twitter Sunday morning and claimed that she wasn’t the only woman to have been victimized.
“Many saw it, and watched,” she said in a Twitter thread. “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?”
Cuomo’s press secretary, Caitlin Girouard, denied the allegations against the governor in a statement to HuffPost on Sunday. “There is simply no truth to these claims,” she said.
Boylan worked for the Cuomo administration from March 2015 to October 2018. She served as deputy secretary for economic development and as a special adviser to the governor, according to her LinkedIn profile.
