NEW YORK – The first woman to come forward with harassment allegations against New York Governor Andrew Cuomo is now revealing more details in a new report.
Lindsey Boylan spoke with The New Yorker in an article published on Thursday night.
In the piece, Boylan recounted a more graphic moment from 2018 when she attended a meeting at the governor’s mansion.
At that meeting, Boylan says she was making her way toward the entrance of the mansion with Cuomo when his puppy approached her. According to Boylan, after she reached down to calm the pet, Cuomo joked that if he were a dog, he would try to “mount” her as well.
Boylan saying she didn’t respond, and that, she was “grossed out.”
The former development aide to the Governor first accused him of sexual harassment on Twitter in December.
Cuomo has continued to deny that he acted inappropriately toward Boylan or any of the other women who have made allegations.
Meanwhile, there are concerns the governor is interfering with the New York Attorney General’s investigation into those allegations.
By the end of the week, investigators will have interviewed at least two accusers, Ana Liss and Charlotte Bennett. However, several state lawmakers have expressed concern about Cuomo exerting influence on the inquiry.
Cuomo recently declined to comment any further on the alleged misconduct and has avoided questions from the media.
