One of the women who accused New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo of sexual harassment condemned the silence of U.S. President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris.
Former Cuomo aide Lindsay Boylan, who first spoke out about his harassment, wrote on Twitter that the New York governor denied the allegations and questioned the motives of the women who spoke out against him. In her opinion, he actually called out the hate and speculation against his victims.
“It also calls into question the faithfulness of judgment and courage of both the president and Kamala Harris,” Boylan added in a second tweet. She later deleted it.
Earlier, White House press secretary Jen Psaki said that U.S. President Joe Biden believes the stories of women who have accused Cuomo of harassment. She said he believes they should be treated with respect and their voices should be heard.
Since December 2020, at least seven women have accused New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo of sexual harassment. His resignation has since been demanded by the mayor of New York City and a number of U.S. and New York State senators and congressmen, including both Republicans and Democrats. The New York State legislature planned to introduce a resolution to impeach the governor.
Andrew Cuomo is an American politician, the 56th and current Governor of New York State. Previously he was the Secretary of Housing and Urban Development of the United States, then the Attorney General of New York. He is a member of the Democratic Party.
