A former aide to NY governor Andrew Cuomo on Wednesday published an essay detailing alleged sexual harassment she endured while working for the governor, including unwanted kissing and touching.

Mr. Cuomo's spokesperson Caitlin Girouard said that all Ms. Boylan's "claims of inappropriate behaviour are quite simply false".

But the state legislature's two top leaders criticised Mr. Cuomo's alleged conduct on Wednesday as calls grew for an investigation.

In December 2020, Andrew Cuomo stated that all claims & allegations against him by Lindsey Boylan are just "not true".

At the time, Boylan tweeted that she had "no interest in talking to journalists" about her allegations of mistreatment.

Boylan, who was then a top advisor to the governor on economic development, also accused him of inappropriately making remarks about her appearance and touching her.

Boylan wrote that the last straw was when Cuomo kissed her without her consent while they were walking out of his office in New York City. Boylan explained on the website: "As I got up to leave and walk toward an open door, he stepped in front of me and kissed me on the lips".

"I've already called for the governor to resign following his mishandling of nursing homes", said Malliotakis, who represents all of Staten Island and parts of southern Brooklyn. "The idea that someone might think I held my high-ranking position because of the Governor's "crush" on me was more demeaning than the kiss itself". "And I have to tell you, other than on this show, there's a lot of people in the media, on CNN and MSNBC and other places that are really, really silent when it comes to any bad behavior in regards to Governor Cuomo".

Though Andrew Cuomo's recent divorce from his wife Kerry Kennedy in 2015 was awful & sudden for all, and yet these recent allegations mean that he hasn't cheated on anyone, but is he guilty of these harassment claims?

United Airlines flight UA328 suffered an engine failure shortly after departing Denver International Airport on 20 February 2020. He added that he and his wife placed their wallets in their pockets so that "in case we did go down, we could be ID'd".

The second-highest ranking woman in state government, Senate Majority Leader Andrea Stewart-Cousins, did not rush to defend the governor. No one should have to be defined or destroyed by this kind of sexual harassment.

"One described how she lived in constant fear, scared of what would happen to her if she rejected the governor's advances", Boylan said, while another recalled the governor telling her to "warn staff members who upset him that their jobs could be at risk".

"This is so damned fearless of her", Kelly wrote.

"You could be sisters". Vanity Fair reported that Cuomo and his ex-wife Kerry Kennedy stressed about their marriage & parenthood if Cuomo was going to run for governor. "His inappropriate behavior toward women was an affirmation that he liked you, that you must be doing something right", Boylan wrote. She said she brushed it off with a joke, sarcastically saying, "That's exactly what I was thinking", but privately found the comment upsetting.

The governor's office confirmed that Ms. Boylan flew with Mr. Cuomo on four occasions that month, but that other aides present disputed the account.

Boylan's allegations come as Cuomo's administration is under investigation by the FBI and the U.S. Attorney in Brooklyn following reports that the governor's top aide told Democrat lawmakers that officials withheld the nursing home data due to concerns that the figures could "be used against us" in a federal investigation. He said the reasons that men get women were 'money and power.' I tried to excuse his behavior.

Boylan also included screenshots of messages with her mother from 2016.

Andrew Cuomo penned a blog Wednesday alleging that sexual harassment and bullying is so pervasive in his administration that it's "not only condoned but expected".
