FORMER aide to Governor Andrew Cuomo, who is married with a child, alleged that she underwent “years” of sexual harassment at the hands of her boss.
Boylan, a Democratic candidate for Manhattan borough president, detailed the instances of harrasment in an essay published on February 24, 2021.
Who is Lindsey Boylan’s husband?
Lindsey Boylan’s husband is LeRoy Kim.
The pair wed at the Sleepy Hollow Country Club in Scarborough, New York in 2012.
At the time, she was 28 years old while Kim was 40.
On June 12, Boylan tweeted about Loving Day, a day that celebrates the 1967 United States Supreme Court decision that struck down all anti-miscegenation laws.
“Happy Loving Day. My husband and I wouldn’t have been able to marry for the most of the last century in America. The Supreme Court didn’t overturn the ban on interracial marriage til 1967.”
As per his LinkedIn profile, Kim is a Managing Director/Merchant Banker at Allen & Company.
Prior to joining Allen & Company, Kim worked as an analyst at Lehman Brothers.
Kim studied at Princeton University and graduated with a degree in economics.
Does Lindsey Boylan have children?
Boylan and Kim have one child together, a daughter named Vivienne.
She regularly uploads pictures to Instagram of her daughter drawing and doing creative activities.
She revealed in a comment on one of her pictures of the family that Vivienne speaks Chinese.
What did she say about Gov Andrew Cuomo?
Boylan worked for New York Governor Andrew Cuomo between 2015 and 2018.
She held the position of deputy secretary for economic development and special adviser to the governor for three years.
But the local politician is now claiming Cuomo sexually harassed her “for years.”
“Many saw it, and watched,” Boylan said on Twitter, without naming anyone.
“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?”
She continued: “That because I am a woman, I can work hard my whole life to better myself and help others and yet still fall victim as countless women over generations have. Mostly silently.
”I hate that some men, like @NYGovCuomo abuse their power.”
In an essay published on Medium titled “My story working with Governor Cuomo,” Boylan went into detail about the separate incidents in which she felt she was harassed.
She begins the essay by alleging Cuomo suggested, “Let’s play strip poker,” while they were “flying home from an October 2017 event in Western New York on his taxpayer-funded jet.”
Boylan goes on to address his behavior towards her and other female staffers working under him.
“The Governor’s pervasive harassment extended beyond just me. He made unflattering comments about the weight of female colleagues. He ridiculed them about their romantic relationships and significant others. He said the reasons that men get women were ‘money and power,'” she wrote.
She described the last alleged incident that prompted her to quit.
“We were in his New York City office on Third Avenue,” she wrote.
“As I got up to leave and walk toward an open door, he stepped in front of me and kissed me on the lips. I was in shock, but I kept walking.”
Afterward, Boylan wrote, “I came to work nauseous every day,” then resigned on Sept. 26, 2018.
What did Cuomo say about the accusations?
As yet, there has been no evidence given to support Boylan’s claim.
Cuomo’s office released a statement rebuffing the accusations.
A statement read: “There is simply no truth to these claims.”
