Former Aide Accuses Gov. Andrew Cuomo of Sexually Harassing Her For Years


New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Sunday was accused of sexual harassment by one of his former aides, who said he made inappropriate comments about her appearance.

Politician Lindsey Boylan released a series of tweets Sunday to her nearly 42,000 followers that Cuomo “sexually harassed me for years. Many saw it, and watched.”

Cuomo has not commented about the allegations.

Boylan, 36, served as the deputy secretary for economic development and as a special adviser to the Democratic governor from 2015 to 2018. She is running for Manhattan Borough President.

Boylan began her tweets against Cuomo by claiming that his recounting of him keeping an eagle feather he found at Saranac Lake “was a completely fabricated story. He made up this memory.”

She then proceeded to release more damaging tweets about Cuomo.

Boylan’s Twitter profile reads: “Mom. Progressive New Yorker fighting 4 a Livable City. Fmr State Govt Official & Urban Planner. Candidate 4 Manhattan Borough Prez. (She/Her)”

Boylan received her undergraduate degree from Wellesley College and received her Masters of business administration from Columbia University, according to her official website. She is married with one child.
