Former Cuomo Aide Details Sexual Harassment Allegations
Lindsey Boylan, a former aide to New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, has written an account of the sexual harassment incidents she says she experienced.
The detailed online allegations have been posted more than two months after Boylan tweeted that Cuomo had "sexually harassed me for years. Many saw it, and watched."
At the time, Boylan - who is a candidate for Manhattan borough president - said she didn't plan to answer questions about what she experienced.
Boylan on Wednesday said she's decided to tell her story "in hopes that it may make it easier for others to speak their own truth."
Among other things, Boylan said Cuomo once invited her to play strip poker while they were flying on a plane from an event in western New York.
Boylan also recounted a time when the governor unexpectedly kissed her on the lips in his New York City office.
During a briefing with reporters the day after Boylan's December tweet, Cuomo was asked about her allegations. He said: "It's just not true."
The governor's representatives did not immediately reply to media requests for a response to Boylan's written accusations.
