Rep. Elise Stefanik called for an investigation into the sexual harassment scandal involving New York Governor Andrew Cuomo and Lindsey Boylan, according to The Daily Wire.
“I am publicly calling for an independent investigation into the serious allegations of pervasive workplace sexual harassment & verbal abuse by Governor Andrew Cuomo. The people of New York deserve a Governor who lives up to his own public statements on sexual harassment,” Stefanik said.

“The brave women who chose to come forward deserve swift and definitive justice in this matter,” Cuomo said.
“There can be no suggestion of any possibility of the reality or appearance of any conflict or anything less than a full, complete, and unbiased investigation,” Cuomo said.
“I have tremendous accolades for the women who came forward. That is the essence of this Me Too movement and this Me Too moment,” Cuomo stated.
“Change comes when people demand change, and change comes when the problem is revealed and exposed.”
“That is always Step 1, and what you’re seeing now is women standing up all across the country and saying this nation has a chronic, disturbing, and disgusting behavior of sexual harassment against women, and it’s gone on for a long, long time and it has to stop,” Cuomo said.
“News of the alleged improprieties are grossly disturbing and must be fully investigated,” Cuomo said.
“It’s not true,” Cuomo said. “Look, I fought for and I believe a woman has the right to come forward and express her opinion and express issues and concerns that she has but it’s just not true.”
Lindsey Boylan said, “I *know* I am not the only woman.”
“Yes, @NYGovCuomo sexually harassed me for years. Many saw it, and watched,” Boylan said. “I could never anticipate what to expect: would I be grilled on my work (which was very good) or harassed about my looks. Or would it be both in the same conversation? This was the way for years.”
