Stunning remarks come after she blasted “toxic” work environment
Democrat Lindsey Boylan has claimed NY Gov. Cuomo “sexually harassed” her for years while she worked in his administration, a work environment she previously described as “beyond toxic.”
“Yes, @NYGovCuomo sexually harassed me for years. Many saw it, and watched,” Boylan, who is running for Manhattan borough president in 2021, wrote in one of a series of tweets on Sunday.
“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 said.
Boylan worked for Cuomo from March 2015 to October 2018 in a variety of roles, including deputy secretary for economic development, chief of staff, and executive vice president of Empire State Development.
Boylan, a Democrat, added that she “knows” she is not the only woman to face abuse under Cuomo.
“I hate that some men, like @NYGovCuomo abuse their power,” she tweeted.
Cuomo’s position, she continued, made it hard for her and others to speak up.
