Cuomo Accuser Reacts to His Apology: How Can New Yorkers Trust You To Lead the State?

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) insists that he did not know he was acting inappropriately or making the woman who accused him of sexual harassment feel uncomfortable.

In a press conference on Wednesday, Cuomo said, “It was unintentional, and I truly and deeply apologize for it.”

However, Lindsey Boylan, one of the three women who has accused the governor of harassment, took issue with his statements. In a tweet, she asked, “How can New Yorkers trust you [Cuomo] to lead our state if you ‘don’t know’ when you’ve been inappropriate with your own staff?”

Boylan was not the only one to criticize Cuomo’s comments. Debra Katz, an attorney for Charlotte Bennett who has also accused Cuomo of harassment, claimed, “The Governor’s press conference was full of falsehoods and inaccurate information, and New Yorkers deserve better.”

Cuomo has been accused of unwanted touching and kissing and asking about former aides’ personal lives. 

On Wednesday, he said, “I now understand that I acted in a way that made people feel uncomfortable. It was unintentional, and I truly and deeply apologize for it.”

Still, he maintained that he “never touched anyone inappropriately” and “I certainly never meant to offend anyone, or hurt anyone, or cause anyone any pain. That is the last thing I would ever want to do.”

He also said he was not aware that he made the women who have accused him of harassment uncomfortable.

State lawmakers also weighed in on Cuomo’s response:

The state’s attorney general is investigating the allegations against Cuomo.

  1. Just trying to save his skin from being remembered as a crook and keep his huge and undeserved paycheck!

    1. A $225,000 annual salary is not exactly “huge”? If money was a consideration, WHY did the NY Governor decline the additional $25,000 a yr increase last year??
      Andrew has followed in his father’s footsteps in public service. If you compare that to his brother’s path in broadcasting, Chris draws a $6M annual salary. Not that fits my definition of “huge.” Just saying.

      1. Well, Syphilis, it didn’t take long for you slimy Democrats to make excuses for this lowlife. Yeah, he’s a real prince in Mad King Biden’s court. Maybe the Mad King will give him a medal.

  2. OMG 40 decades ago I was involved in somehing similar as a 22 yr old manager. Move forward 40 years and a GOVERNOR of NY claims he was sorry, had no idea asking if sex w/older ,men was on he agenda was harassment? Are you kidding me? Be fooled no more NY and America, a deviant ass is a deviant ass. So many BIG fish 2 fry and BIDEN is focused on killing Mr. Potato Head and Dr. Seuss.

  3. Looks like the shoe is on the other hand. Cuomo will be excused just like Mad King Biden.

  4. Looks like Cuomo never attended classes for inappropriate sexual advances in the workplace. But most likely thought he was as charming as his brother thinks he is. What a self absorbed poor excuse for a man.
    The death of the elderly Covid patients speaks for itself. Resignation would be best for him.

  5. What apology? What about the murder of the elderly? Notice he said nothing about that, because he’d have to admit that he was WRONG.

  6. The answer is obvious. Hash tags #MeToo and #Believe apply only to those who accuse Republicans. To Democrats, not so much and then only if they are on the way down anyway. Stick a fork Coumo, he’s done.

  7. hi everyone i think i was fooled by cuomo, i thought he was doing such a good job with the covid stuff, and now the unreported covid deaths, and now this groping and kissing , i really did like him, but now i think it is time for him to resign

    1. Thanks for admitting your mistake. A lot of us (on the other side) heard about these “issues” before the MSM would even address them. You might consider expanding your sources for news in the future. This site has been part of the problem as well.

  8. Let Andrew the Arrogant “twist slowly in the wind”.
    Karma has no time limit.

    1. I really am shocked to see everyone on this page crying about killing the elderly and pointing a finger at a womanizer when you kneel at Donald Trumps feet. There are over 500,000 dead in the USA because of Trump’s Covid response and lies. Trump who payed hush money to several women and is on tape bragging abouit grabbing them by the pus*y! Cuomo is the Democrat version of Trump! Bullying, womanizing and lying are NEVER ok, yet you see no wrong in Trump! You are all a bunch of hypocrites.
