Ex-Gov. Andrew Cuomo demands docs from sexual harassment accuser to fight ongoing lawsuit
Andrew Cuomo, the disgraced former governor of New York, is now demanding that Lindsey Boylan, a former staffer, release documents relating to sexual harassment allegations made against him. In December 2020, Boylan publicly accused Cuomo of a range of misconduct, including kissing her without consent and challenging her to a game of strip poker. Her allegations were cited in a federal lawsuit brought against Cuomo by an unnamed state trooper who also claims to have experienced sexual misconduct during his time as governor. Cuomo’s latest motion seeks communication records between Boylan and other women who have also accused him of wrongdoing, stating that these documents are “plainly relevant” to the case. The former governor’s attorneys argue that the requested documents could reveal whether the timing of Boylan’s accusations had anything to do with her unsuccessful 2021 campaign for Manhattan borough president. Boylan’s attorney is expected to respond to the motion later this month.
