NY mayor demands inquiry into Cuomo sexual harassment claims

"Now that Ms. Boylan has put these claims forward, she deserves the opportunity to have her allegations thoroughly reviewed by an independent body and any appropriate steps taken upon those findings". "His inappropriate behavior toward women was an affirmation that he liked you, that you must be doing something right". Kirsten Gillibrand, a champion of the left's Me Too movement, meanwhile, has so far remained silent on the allegations against Cuomo. According to Boylan, the governor "stepped in front" of her as she was leaving his office and kissed her on the lips.

On an October 2017 flight home from an event, Boylan says Cuomo suggested, in front of other staff members, that they play strip poker. "I was in shock, but I kept walking", Boylan wrote.

Boylan, 36, is a former state economic development official and aide of Cuomo, and is now running for Manhattan Borough President.

Boylan says she first began to "truly fear" Cuomo in 2016 when she was invited to his office in Albany during a holiday celebration.

The office shared in a press release that they claim are all flight manifests from October 2017, none of which show Boylan "alone with the Governor, a single press aide, and a NYS Trooper".

Boylan said her career was strained by the inappropriate treatment, which extended to other women in the government of NY. The Governor is also accused of king that Boylan looked like one of his ex-girlfriends, and that the two should play strip poker.

She said Ms Higgins was courageous in coming forward after she was left to choose between seeking justice and keeping her job. Mr Morrison has denied being aware of Ms Higgins' complaint until it made headlines on major news networks earlier this week.

The governor was already under intense scrutiny over an investigation by the New York State Attorney General's office that found his administration had undercounted COVID-19 deaths of nursing home residents by as much as 50%. His current term ends in January 2023.

When Boylan first went public with her allegations of harassment on Twitter in December, the governor denied her claims during a press briefing. In an essay posted to the website Medium, Boylan claims she was subjected to unwanted advances by Cuomo during her nearly two years with the administration. You could be sisters. "Except you're the better looking sister", the aide wrote.

Lindsay Boylan served as the Governor's deputy secretary of economic development and as a special adviser. Lindsey Boylan, who used to work for Cuomo, published an essay on Medium Tuesday charging that Cuomo exploited their professional relationship for sexual harassment.

Boylan says those personnel records were leaked to the media "in an effort to smear me".

The Democratic governor is facing calls for an investigation after Lindsey Boylan - who worked as a special advisor to Cuomo in 2018 - charged in an essay published to Medium Wednesday that Cuomo asked her to play strip poker and kissed on the lips without her permission.

"I'm compelled to tell my story because no woman should feel forced to hide their experiences of workplace intimidation, harassment and humiliation - not by the Governor or anyone else", Boylan wrote. "I told myself 'it's only words.' But that changed after a one-on-one briefing with the Governor to update him on economic and infrastructure projects", she wrote. "We refuse to accept a definition of leadership that depends on denigrating and abusing others in service to one powerful man".
