A former aide of New York. Gov Andrew Cuomo who worked as his deputy secretary for economic development and as his special advisor from March 2015 to October 2018 has accused him of sexually harassing her “for years.”

Like brother, like brother

In a shocking Twitter thread posted Sunday morning, former Cuomo aide Lindsey Boylan bluntly wrote, “Yes, @NYGovCuomo sexually harassed me for years.”

She added, “I hate that some men, like @NYGovCuomo abuse their power.”

View the full thread below:

The thread was a follow-up to another thread she’d posted the previous weekend in which she’d accused Cuomo of having hosted a “toxic” work environment and further claimed his underlings had been and still are “deathly afraid” of him.

“I’ve had many jobs. Waitressing at @Friendlys as a teenager was an infinitely more respectful environment. Even when I had bad customers who tipped poorly. If people weren’t deathly afraid of him, they’d be saying the same thing and you’d already know the stories,” she wrote.

The tweets were posted in response to photographer Jerry Avenaim asking people to “Name the worst job you’ve ever had.”

Of all the responses his tweet generated, Boylan’s response garnered the most attention, with Inside Edition, Newsweek, Fox News, the New York Post, the Daily Caller all running reports on it.

Predictably, CNN, The Washington Post, The New York Times and other demonstrably far-left media outlets ignored the tweets — and despite all three networks purporting to be champions for women and the oppressed.

But as their reporting record clearly indicates, they’re only champions for women when being champions for women is politically convenient for them.

Boylan’s LinkedIn profile shows that she worked for the governor from 2015 to 2018, after which she declared her candidacy for office and made an attempt to unseat Rep. Jerry Nadler. That attempt fell by the wayside when she lost NY’s primary in June. She’s now running in the 2021 election for Manhattan borough president.

It’s not clear what motivated her to reveal more about her experiences working for Cuomo and talk specifically about the alleged sexual harassment she’d endured.

In a follow-up tweet posted later Sunday morning, she said she has “no interest in talking to journalists” and is only focused on “validating the experience of countless women and making sure abuse stops.”

Of course, for her to achieve this, so-called “journalists” will actually have to cover her story — and do so fairly and objectively.

Will they, though? Some of Boylan’s supporters don’t appear to think so.

Look:

To hear the media tell it, Cuomo is a saint whose coronavirus policies haven’t killed the elderly and wrecked New York’s economy.

But as it typical for virtually everything claimed by the establishment media, reality looks far different:
