Borough President Candidate Accuses Governor Cuomo Of Being A Sexual Harassing Asshole

New York, New York

This afternoon, a nurse became the first person receiving the official COVID-19 fighting vaccine at a Queens Hospital as Governor Cuomo zoomed in on the historic inoculation via video. What should have been a great moment for him after his recent Emmy and Ted Kennedy honorary award (?!) was given the kibosh from a former aide who grievously toiled for him for three years. And it all started with an innocuous question 24 hours earlier when a blue check guy asked everyone that was paying attention on twitterworld what job was the worst they ever had…

Lindsey Boylan called out her former boss and unleashed a very well-written sobering thread capsulizing her experience working for him and the degradation she endured before he became the pandemic pop culture icon that’s beloved around the world and revered and adored by the Democrat establishment party. 

Ms. Boylan vividly describes a cult-like atmosphere and protective circle around the governor and the hubris he carried that gave him the assurance and confidence that gave him the impunity to mistreat her. Which matches the same hubris he’s displaying during the pandemic and it’s current resurgence and the same circle of sycophants still  propping up and protecting the megalomaniac executive official.

While this recollection of Cuomo’s abuse of power and her are only allegations (for now), they unquestionably have merit being that she unleashed this as she’s currently running for Manhattan Borough President in 2021 and will be subjected to inquiry of her tweets by the press during her campaign. Plus Ms. Boylan has a character witness for her allegations of Cuomo’s sexual harassment:

Just like that Yankee cap wearing woman’s taking her opportunity to rage at the governor and the press even as they and Cuomo showed zero interest for her

she was railing about her difficulties filing a sexual harassment complaint herself and verbally and profanely described what she felt was entrenched corruption in the offices there and let Governor Cuomo know it even as her voice faded as state troopers dragged her out.

The difference now is the one doing the accusing is a woman with a heavy social media following and a blue check verification and like the unheralded lady in the video above, Boylan’s not sparing any profanities either.

What truly makes Boylan’s thread fire is that it appears she did this to get some sort kind of closure and probably to persuade the Biden transition team to retract his pick for U.S. Attorney General (even though Cuomo has said about 5 times he’s remaining in New York and is running for another term). Mostly it’s a sincere confessional from a person who is using her power as a public figure to inspire regular people not be afraid of bullies in the workplace and has opened it up for people to use social media as a vessel to liberate themselves from their oppressive work environment and attain the same privilege as well.

Governor Cuomo’s response to his former aide’s confessional diatribe against his character was decisively calm and measured and peppered it with claims of his support for women and the policies and laws he ratified for them. But recent history belies all that regarding his autocratic assholic behavior since the pandemic struck New York and the tens of thousands of deaths caused by his edict(and tens of thousands of more uncounted) and her charges of enablers is legitimized by the fact that no one told Cuomo he shouldn’t write a self-aggrandizing book about the pandemic while it’s still going on and wreaking havoc on his constituency and the state’s economy and also deciding to celebrate his birthday with a star-studded virtual fundraiser days after he decreed for restaurants to shut down serving customers without mandating any financial relief for them.

Cuomo has an advantage on Boylan because she mentioned that she won’t take questions about her accusations from the press (good luck), but days before her tweet screed about his abuse of power he decided to ban the journalists from all his pressers and cited the resurgent state COVID cases as an excuse, a preemptive strike to avoid facing them now that his pandemic response and his data are starting to reveal flaws (even though they were already there). Another advantage he has on Boylan is his other circle of enablers, corporate news networks that have been praising his dubious leadership and practically running protection from him, as none of the networks (sans Fox) barely devoted a minute to Boylan’s charges against him (maybe this is partially why she’s reluctant to expand beyond her rage tweets)

Regardless of all that, at least Lindsey Boylan social media whistle blowing undressed the emperor of New York and hopefully like the multiple cases against Harvey Weinstein, a chorus line of women (and maybe men) will come out with their experiences working for Mario’s Son, listening to his obnoxious condescending tone and insults, his oblivious come-ons and his machinations and manipulations to keep his aides working under fear of his whims and also his loyal minions.

All they have to do is follow.
