Boylan said she didn’t respond. “I remember being totaled but also like, say a dumb thing in third grade.” She added, “I just shrugged it.”
Boylan, who told his story to investigators Attorney General Letitia James, released new information on the governor’s antagonism to the governor’s longtime “arch enemy” Major Bill de Blasio. During a pool party at the executive mansion, she saw a dart board with de Blasio’s picture on it, she announced.
“I can’t believe how shameless it is,” she said.

The plan they hatched was to leak Boylan personnel files, including accusations of bullying her colleagues. Some of them are women of color.
The Wall Street Journal said that Cuomo’s whistleblowers lawyers were told James’s sexual harassment investigation would also check if top aides took steps to intimidate whistleblowers, whether they were activating the governor’s behavior and how they handle complaints about sexual harassment.
Debra Katz, Charlotte Bennet’s attorney, told CBS2:
As we said before, it is imperative that this investigation not only focus on Governor Cuomo’s actions, but also on the culture of fear, abuse and secrecy that he and his senior staff most of her have nurtured. Therefore, we fully believe in the investigation and the investigators.
Bennett, Boyland and Ana Liss all spoke to investigators.
At an event in Yonkers, the attorney general declined to comment on how many people came to her office to talk about the governor.

The sound obtained by CBS2 shows that Cuomo doesn’t like that comment a bit.
“If you say ‘he’s better than a Republican’, then I would say ‘you’re better than a child rapist.’ What about that? Cuomo could be heard saying that.
Team Cuomo said that the governor had no recollection of that conversation.
“This three-year conversation happened after a very controversial political campaign where everything was blamed from all sides. He doesn’t remember what happened, “Spokesperson Rich Azzopardi said, adding that it was an exaggeration” to illustrate the insulting nature of the WFP’s proper naming. “
Cuomo didn’t have any public events on Fridays and his office did not respond to a request for comment.
Compiling the governor’s affairs, the Wall Street Journal said a federal investigation into nursing home government operations is now looking at legislation originating in the governor’s office to protect doctors, Nurses, hospitals and nursing homes from pandemic-related criminal charges and claims.
