Ex-Cuomo Aide: Harassment Started When I First Met Him

The Governor's office released a statement on Wednesday which read, "As we said before, Ms. Boylan's claims of inappropriate behavior are quite simply false". "His inappropriate behavior toward women was an affirmation that he liked you, that you must be doing something right".

Other parts of Boylan's piece feature screenshots of messages she received from other members of Cuomo's staff, including some of his inner-circle. According to Boylan, the governor "stepped in front" of her as she was leaving his office and kissed her on the lips. "I was in shock, but I kept walking", she wrote.

Boylan, like Cuomoa Democrat, is running for Manhattan borough president.

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".

'He made some positive comments about Governor Cuomo, and his role in NY at the time as he did about a range of governors, ' she added.

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%.

Cuomo was first elected governor in 2010, and re-elected in 2014 and 2018. His current term ends in January 2023.

Police in northern Mexico arrested six people Wednesday for allegedly trafficking in fake coronavirus vaccines. Professor Pollard said: "It is important to understand whether vaccines can reduce Covid-19 transmission".

She further alleged that during a one-on-one briefing with the Governor to update him on economic and infrastructure projects he kissed her without permission. You could be sisters. 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.

"I could never anticipate what to expect: would I be grilled on my work (which was very good) or harassed about my looks".

In her essay, she recounts serving as deputy secretary for economic development under Cuomo and as his special adviser from 2015 until 2018, a position she was hesitant to take due to her fears about being in close proximity to Cuomo.

The records, dated September 2018 and obtained by the Daily News late previous year, show that at least two officials requested Boylan be "removed" from the office for requesting the resignation of an employee without authorization and for ordering around colleagues who did not report to her.

The AP reports that personnel records from that time show Boylan resigned after she faced complaints that she had yelled at her staff and belittled them. "I was reprimanded and told to get in line by his top aides, but I could no longer ignore it". "My boss soon informed me that the Governor had a "crush" on me", she wrote, saying she was told by the Director of the Governor's Offices that Cuomo suggested she "look up images of Lisa Shields - his rumored former girlfriend - because "we could be sisters" and I was 'the better looking sister'".

The state says visitations can resume February 26 for the first time in nearly a year in counties where the positivity rate is below five percent on a rolling seven-day average but homes also must be COVID-free for 14 days. We are accustomed to powerful men behaving badly when no one is watching.

The Sexual Harassment Working Group, an advocacy group started by former NY state legislative workers who had experienced sexual harassment, called for an immediate investigation into Cuomo's workplace behavior: "This is another reckoning point".
