Former aide Lindsey Boylan alleges Cuomo ‘sexually harassed’ her about looks

 A former aide to Gov. Andrew Cuomo now running for Manhattan borough president alleged Sunday morning on Twitter that her ex-boss “sexually harassed” her for years — but refused to share any more information.

“Yes, @NYGovCuomo sexually harassed me for years. Many saw it, and watched,” wrote Lindsey Boylan on the platform. “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.”

From March 2015 through October 2018, Boylan served as Cuomo’s deputy secretary for economic development and a special advisor, according to her LinkedIn profile.

But as quickly as Boylan dropped the bombshell — in a thread about workplace sexual harassment, starting with her mother’s own experiences — she made clear she had no interest in sharing further details.

“To be clear: I have no interest in talking to journalists. I am about validating the experience of countless women and making sure abuse stops,” she wrote in another tweet.

“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 added, referring to the musician now suing ex-boyfriend Shia LaBeouf, alleging an abusive relationship.
