“Yes, @NYGovCuomo sexually harassed me for years,” wrote Lindsey Boylan, who worked for him between March 2015 and October 2018 as deputy secretary for economic development and as a special adviser. “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.”
Boylan added there were other victims as well: “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 wrote. “And I know I am not the only woman.
“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 [New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo] abuse their power,” she continued.
“If people weren’t deathly afraid of him, they’d be saying the same thing and you’d already know the stories,” Boylan alleged in a separate tweet last week. “Seriously, the messages and texts I receive when I speak the truth about this. … It’s a whole book of people who have been harmed.”
