Several months ago a former employee of NY Governor Andrew Cuomo came forward with allegations of sexual harassment. Lindsey Boylan gave no details at first, but last week she opened up about what she alleges Cuomo did:
Constant sexual comments, pressure, unwanted kisses, groping her, harassing her about her personal life and making her feel pressured to sleep with him to protect her job.
Now another Cuomo aide is coming forward with serious allegations against Andrew “Grandma Killer” Cuomo, saying that the governor harassed her with inappropriate sexual questions and pressure on a regular basis.
The accusations come from 25-year-old Charlotte Bennett, who says the abusive behavior took place last spring when she was an executive assistant and health policy adviser for Cuomo’s state government before quitting in November.
What Are Bennett’s Allegations?
According to Bennett, while she was working hard to help Cuomo and his office respond to the COVID crisis, the governor harassed her with personal questions and propositioning her. Cuomo asked her what she thought of older men dating younger women like her, claiming he was dating women in their 20s.
Cuomo then complained to her about feeling lonely during the pandemic because he “can’t even hug anyone” and then tried to steer the conversation into sexual territory.
Holy bananas. Where did this guy learn his pick up skills?
You almost have to feel sorry for Cuomo if it wasn’t so damn creepy and abusive of his powerful position.
Another reason not to feel sorry for this incel governor is that his policies led to the deaths of thousands of seniors in nursing homes and he then tried to cover it up. Does anyone think maybe they were lonely for a family member or friend to hug as they died packed like sardines because of Cuomo’s insane and inhumane policies?
As Bennett says, the propositions coming from Cuomo were crystal clear.
“I understood that the governor wanted to sleep with me, and felt horribly uncomfortable and scared. And was wondering how I was going to get out of it and assumed it was the end of my job,” Bennett explained.

Cuomo, of course, denies Bennett’s allegations just like he denied Boylan’s. According to him he “never made advances” and always behaved appropriately.
“The last thing I would ever have wanted was to make her feel any of the things that are being reported. Ms. Bennett was a hardworking and valued member of our team during COVID. This situation cannot and should not be resolved in the press; I believe the best way to get to the truth is through a full and thorough outside review and I am directing all state employees to comply with that effort,” Cuomo responded.
What an absolute gentleman. He must be telling the truth. (Sarcasm).
Calls for investigations into Cuomo and for him to step down are growing including from Democrats like New York’s Lieutenant Governor Kathy Hochul who said she backs an “independent review” of what is going on and Republican Congresswoman Elise Stefanik who has praised victims and slammed Cuomo as a “criminal sexual predator” who should resign immediately.
“It takes bravery and courage for victims to come forward with their horrific experiences facing sexual harassment, sexual grooming, and sexual abuse from Governor Cuomo,” Stefanik wrote, adding: “I was one of the first and one of the only elected officials to call on the Governor to resign on Dec. 14th. Today, it’s time for other New York State leaders to grow a spine.”
