ALBANY – New details of sexual harassment accusations against New York’s Governor are surfacing.

In a post online, former aide to Gov. Andrew Cuomo Lindsey Boylan outlined the claims.










Boylan alleges Cuomo regularly sought her company, instructing staffers to arrange meetings with her, where he made inappropriate comments.

“Let’s play strip poker,” Boylan accused Cuomo of saying on a flight in October 2017.





In a separate encounter in December 2016, Boylan said Cuomo arranged to meet with her at his Albany office where he toured the room, showing off his cigar box from former President Bill Clinton.

Boylan interpreted the moment as a sly innuendo referencing the affair between Clinton and his then-intern Monica Lewinsky in the mid-1990s.



















She says she was warned when she joined his administration in 2015 to “be careful around the Governor,” saying his behavior was “normalized — particularly by Melissa DeRosa and other top women around him — that only now do I realize how insidious his abuse was.”

Boylan accused the governor of harassment last year, but at the time did not elaborate.

The full alleged experience is posted online at medium.com.
