One of the former aides to Gov. Andrew Cuomo, who was the first to accuse him of sexual harassment is calling the impeachment investigation process a ‘sham’.
Lindsey Boylan said in a series of tweets on Wednesday that the investigation being pushed in the Assembly by Speaker Carl Heastie isn’t designed to be transparent or move fast.
She noted that it’s giving the Governor what he wants- more time.
Boylan went on to note that she would not cooperate with the investigation. Six other women have come forward since she did.
“I am in conversation with other women who have no interest in your corrupt, cynical ‘investigation’,” she wrote. “Hard pass.”
The law firm Davis Polk and Wardwell was announced as the one that would lead the investigation. Charlotte Bennett, another accuser, called it a conflict of interest.
Meanwhile, it was reported late-Wednesday that Cuomo’s office is conducting its own ‘parallel’ investigation. There is also the investigation being led by Attorney General Letitia James’ office.
Of that internal investigation, The Albany Times Union reported that senior aides to the governor say they were directed to conduct their own inquiries into the claims leveled by more than a half-dozen women.
