Not long after Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced that he would step down in the aftermath of a damning report that corroborated the claims of at least 11 women accusing him of sexual harassment, his first accuser called it a “tragedy” that “so many stood by” as the abuse unfolded.
“From the beginning, I simply asked that the Governor stop his abusive behavior,” Lindsey Boylan said in a statement Tuesday. “It became abundantly clear he was unable to do that, instead attacking and blaming victims until the end. It is a tragedy that so many stood by and watched these abuses happen.”
The former state economic adviser first came forward publicly with her allegations of sexual harassment against the governor in December, effectively opening the floodgates to a wave of similar accusations from other women, many of whom serve as current and former aides to Cuomo.
