According to Boylan, many outsiders saw the alleged sexual harassment but did nothing. She also claimed she wasn’t the only woman to have been the victim of the alleged harassment.
The former employee did not provide any additional information about the alleged harassment, like who witnessed the instances or what specifically took place. She did, however, say she’s not interested in going into greater detail with reporters.
Earlier in December, she said working under the Cuomo administration was the most “toxic environment” she had ever worked in.
Yes, @NYGovCuomo sexually harassed me for years. Many saw it, and watched.
I could never anticipate what to expect: would I be grilled on my work (which was very good) or harassed about my looks. Or would it be both in the same conversation? This was the way for years.
