Former Cuomo Aide Blasts Gov Amid Sexual Harrassment Allegations
(New York, NY) — An accuser of Andrew Cuomo is blasting the New York governor’s response to his sexual harrassment claims. Speaking for the first time about the allegations, Cuomo said he never touched anyone inappropriately and added he now understands he “acted in a way that made people feel uncomfortable.” After Cuomo wrapped up his comments, one of the governor’s three accusers spoke out. Former aide Lindsey Boylan tweeted, “How can New Yorkers trust you to lead our state if you ‘don’t know’ when you’ve been inappropriate with your own staff?” Boylan accused Cuomo of kissing her on the lips without warning in 2018 and asking her to play strip poker.
