Cuomo’s Office Responds to Aide’s Sexual Harassment Claims

The office of New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Feb. 24 responded to sexual harassment claims from a former female member of his administration, who accused him of making inappropriate remarks, and touching and kissing her without consent.

In a post published on the website Medium on Wednesday, Lindsey Boylan, the former deputy secretary for economic development and special adviser to Cuomo, shared details of her experience working under the New York leader’s administration. She said she hoped her account will “make it easier for others to speak their own truth.”

She first accused Cuomo of sexual harassment last year but didn’t elaborate on the details of her story.

The governor “would go out of his way to touch me on my lower back, arms, and legs,” compared her to one of his rumored former girlfriends and once suggested that they should “play strip poker” on a flight from an event in October 2017.

When Cuomo made the “crude comment,” he was seated facing opposite her, “so close our knees almost touched,” Boylan said, noting that at the time, his press aide was to her right, and a state trooper was behind them. She did not mention who else might have been on the plane.

Boylan, a Democrat running for Manhattan borough president, accused Cuomo of creating “a culture within his administration where sexual harassment and bullying is so presage that it is not only condoned but expected.”

“His inappropriate behavior toward women was an affirmation that he liked you, that you must be doing something right,” she claimed. “He used intimidation to silence his critics. And if you dared to speak up, you would face consequences.”

In a statement to The Epoch Times on Wednesday, the Democratic governor’s office said that Boylan’s “claims of inappropriate behavior are quite simply false.”

“In Ms. Boylan’s latest blog post, she opens up with a story about a plane trip in October 2017 … there was no flight where Lindsey was alone with the Governor, a single press aide, and a NYS Trooper,” Cuomo’s spokesperson Caitlin Girouard said.

Cuomo’s office sent over a list of flight details dated Oct. 4, Oct. 6, Oct. 12, and Oct. 17, that say then-Director of Policy John Maggiore, President and CEO of Empire State Development Howard Zemsky, former Press Secretary Dani Lever and First Deputy Press Secretary Abbey Fashouer Collins, “were on all of these flights with” Boylan.

    Thanks for the concepts you write about through this web site. In addition, many young women who become pregnant never even try and get health insurance because they worry they won’t qualify. Although a few states at this moment require that insurers produce coverage no matter the pre-existing conditions. Costs on these guaranteed options are usually higher, but when with the high cost of medical treatment it may be a safer way to go to protect the financial potential.
