Accused & Charged
A former aide to Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo on Sunday accused him of sexual harassment, asserting that the governor would often discuss her physical appearance, something she said occurred over the course of years.
“I could never anticipate what to expect: would I be grilled on my work (which was very good) or harassed about my looks,” Lindsey Boylan, the former aide, wrote on Twitter. “Or would it be both in the same conversation?”
Ms. Boylan declined multiple requests for further comment. She has thus far discussed no specific allegations, nor did she provide any immediate corroboration.
“There is simply no truth to these claims,” the governor’s press secretary, Caitlin Girouard, said on Sunday.
On Twitter, Ms. Boylan explained her policy of not taking questions from reporters on the topic.
“I have no interest in talking to journalists,” she wrote. “I am about validating the experience of countless women and making sure abuse stops. My worst fear is that this continues.
“And as @FKAtwigs said yesterday, my second worst fear is having to talk about and relive this,” she said, referring to the musician, who on Friday sued an ex-boyfriend, actor Shia LaBeouf, alleging he physically and emotionally abused her.
Ms. Boylan recently launched a campaign for Manhattan borough president, following a failed bid to unseat Representative Jerrold Nadler on Manhattan’s Upper West Side.
Boylan ran against US representative Jerrold Nadler in the 2020 Democratic primary, taking 22% of the vote while arguing the incumbent wasn’t progressive enough. She announced last month that she is running in the 2021 primary to succeed Gale Brewer, the Manhattan borough president.
Earlier this month, Boylan tweeted about her experience in the Cuomo administration, which she said was the worst job she ever had.
“I tried to quit three times before it stuck. I’ve worked hard my whole life. Hustled – fake it till you make it style,” she wrote. “That environment is beyond toxic. I’m still unwrapping it years later in therapy!”
Personnel memos written in 2018, obtained by the Associated Press, indicate Boylan resigned after she was confronted about complaints about her own behavior.
Several women complained to Empire State Development’s human resources department that “Ms Boyland had behaved in a way towards them that was harassing, belittling, and had yelled and been generally unprofessional,” wrote the administration’s ethics officer, Julia Pinover Kupiec, in one memo.
Boylan resigned after meeting officials including Cuomo’s top lawyer, Alphonso David, to be “counseled” about the complaints.
David said in a follow-up memo Boylan contacted him several days later and said she had reconsidered and wished to return to work, but he discouraged her from doing so.
