New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo is now being accused of making a graphic and inappropriate sexual joke to a female staffer, stating that if he were a dog, he would try to “mount” her, the staffer said to Ronan Farrow of the New Yorker.
Lindsey Boylan, who first came out with sexual misconduct allegations against Cuomo back in December, talked about the incident, which she claims happened back in February of 2018.
She said that following a press conference where Cuomo showed off his new puppy, the governor approached her with dog, which jumped up and down near her. Boylan said that she reached out to the dog to calm him before moving away, which is when she says Cuomo joked that if he were a dog, he would try to “mount” her also.
“I remember being grossed out but also, like, what a dumb third-grade thing to say,” Boylan told the New Yorker, adding that she “just shrugged it off,” and did not respond.
A spokesperson for Cuomo declined to comment on this specific incident, but restated the governor’s denial of inappropriate behavior with Boylan.
Again, why in the world is this guy still the governor? The state assembly needs to impeach him immediately because he’s made it clear that he will not resign amid these allegations.
But sexual misconduct isn’t the only thing he’s done that’s worthy of being removed from office. Coumo also lied about the number of COVID related deaths in nursing homes.
