‘NY Gov Cuomo Sexually Harassed Me For Years’: State Official Brings Serious Accusation Against The Governor

Former New York state official Lindsey Boylan has accused New York Governor Andrew Cuomo of sexually harassing her.

The alleged behavior persisted for years when Boylan served as an economic development deputy secretary, she said in a series of tweets she posted on Sunday morning.

Boylan, who Twitchy reports is a progressive (as is Cuomo), shared her account of the alleged workplace incident by first talking about her mother and the disadvantages women have in the workplace.

“My first experience of workplace sexual harassment was when my mom got her first real office job after graduating from college when I was in high school,” she said in the tweets. “She was so excited to be taken ‘seriously.’ Her bossed isolated her and kissed her. She never had that type of job again.”

“It was then how I learned how hard it is for women,” she continued. “How hard this world can be for us when we are trying to be taken seriously and help our community. How easily jerks can destroy the lives of women.”

She added: “And I promised myself I would never let those kind of guys win. I would work hard my whole life to put myself in positions of power to change things. To end the violence & corruption. Give voice to the voiceless.”

“I am not stopping. I refuse. I will never give up,” Boylan asserted, before opening up sharing her own account.

“Yes, NY Gov. Cuomo sexually harassed me for years,” she said, tagging Cuomo in the post.

And, she claimed there were witnesses.

“Many saw it and watched. 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,” she explained.

But no one did a thing.

“Not knowing what to expect what’s the most upsetting part aside from knowing that no one would do a damn thing even when they saw it,” she claimed. “No one.”

Boylan also claimed she did not believe she was the only victim of sexually inappropriate behaviors.

“I *know* I am not the only woman,” she said in the tweets.

She concluded:

I’m angry to be put in this situation at all. That because I am a woman, I can work hard my whole life to better myself and help others and yet still fall victim as countless women over generations have. Mostly silently. I hate that some men, like @NYGovCuomo abuse their power.
