DE BLASIO TURNS: Mayor Accuses Cuomo of ‘Laughing Off’ Allegations of Sexual Misconduct

posted by Hannity Staff - 3.02.21

Big Apple Mayor Bill de Blasio slammed Governor Andrew Cuomo during a press briefing Monday; directly accusing his fellow Democrat of “laughing off” allegations of sexual misconduct and abusing his office.

“I think when someone’s done something wrong, they need to say ‘I did something wrong’ and decide what action they’re going to take as a result,” said the Mayor.

“It’s even more horrible that something like sexual harassment or taking advantage of a high office, to laugh it off is even more troubling. That’s not a laughing matter,” added de Blasio.

posted by Hannity Staff - 3.01.21

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo released a statement over the weekend after multiple allegations of sexual misconduct surfaced in the media; saying some of his actions “may have been insensitive” or “too personal.”

“I now understand that my interactions may have been insensitive or too personal and that some of my comments, given my position, made others feel in ways I never intended,” said the Governor.

“I acknowledge some of the things I have said have been misinterpreted as an unwanted flirtation. To the extent anyone felt that way, I am truly sorry about that,” he added.

REPORT: Governor Andrew Cuomo Accused of Sexual Harassment, Misconduct by Ex-Aide

posted by Hannity Staff - 2.25.21

From Fox News:

A former aide to Gov. Andrew Cuomo is accusing the embattled New York leader of sexually harassing her — including unwanted kissing and touching — and says his top female staffers “normalized” the behavior.

Lindsey Boylan, the former deputy secretary for economic development and special adviser to the governor, said Cuomo constantly sought her out and had staffers arrange meetings with her, where he made inappropriate comments. 

“Let’s play strip poker,” Boylan said Cuomo remarked on a flight from an event in October 2017, according to an essay she wrote on Medium published Wednesday. 

In another encounter in December 2016, Boylan said Cuomo arranged through a handler to meet her in his Albany office, to which she agreed reluctantly. She said he gave her a tour of his office, “smirked” and showed off a cigar box he said was given to him by former President Bill Clinton while he served as the secretary of Housing and Urban Development. 

Boylan said she interpreted that to be an innuendo referencing the affair between Clinton and his then-intern Monica Lewinsky in the mid-1990s. 

She said she was warned by other staffers when she joined Cuomo’s administration in 2015 to “be careful around the Governor.”
