Cuomo Goons Target Boylan, As Governor Drowns In Scandals

She's not backing down.

The “Party of Women” is at it again. This time savaging a woman who dares to accuse one of their own of their favorite charge against political opponents: sexual harassment. But Andrew Cuomo has gone farther than mere harassment and is likely now experiencing his last pathetic days in office. Sequestered in his Albany bunker, before he goes into the wilderness, his minions are trying one last ditch attempt to harass a woman. It isn’t working.

FNC: “New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s first accuser recently spoke out against the online ‘hate’ and ‘misogyny’ she claims she and others have faced since leveling sexual harassment claims against the governor. In late February, Boylan alleged Cuomo had frequently made inappropriate comments to her, suggestively joking once that they should play strip poker. She said he also kissed her on the mouth once without consent, adding in the more than three years she worked for him, he ‘would go out of his way to touch me on my lower back, arms and legs.’ Boylan has taken the brunt of the allegations, according to the Journal News. The former Cuomo aide has been called a liar, a manipulator and a harasser herself while being questioned the about timing of her claims as well as insinuations she is trying to ‘smear the governor.’ ”

“Please understand, I am ok and I will be ok,” the former Cuomo aide said earlier this week. “But these online trolls are being seen by other survivors. Not all survivors have the privilege of a platform I do. Not all survivors have the support system I do. The hate of survivors and misogyny needs to stop.”

One cynic in Boylan’s anti-hate post claimed she was a “fame groupie” while another made sport of her self-bestowed “survivor” moniker. Regardless of the merits of those charges, it is obvious to any unbiased observer that Boylan is milking this issue to gain publicity for her run for Manhattan Borough president.

Cuomo, going under for close to the last time, burbled this harassment denial out as his political lungs filled with water, “My message to anyone doing that is, you have misjudged what matters to me and my administration and you should stop now – period.” It’s amazing he said that with a straight face.

Cuomo said his office had heard “anecdotally that some people have reached out to Ms. Bennett to express displeasure about her coming forward.” Uh huh, anecdotally. It no doubt was, in the sense they reported back to Cuomo and his goons after the calls. Cuomo has even tried to blame Trump, always a move of failed Democrats.

The Trump scenario? “It’s tantamount to QAnon (conspiracies),” Cuomo accuser Ana Liss said in an interview. “Like to think that I would be contacted by Donald Trump’s people and be paid off? It’s laughable, and that’s a distraction.” Bingo. A classic change the subject ploy. But Cuomo is long past that. Time to say bye bye Fredo.
