Another former Cuomo aide accuses governor of creating ‘toxic’ work environment

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has come under fire in recent days for allegations of bad behavior despite warm media coverage of his administration.

Former staffer Linsey Boylan came forward with allegations that Cuomo created the “most toxic” work environment she’s ever witnessed and declared that the only reason it’s not common knowledge is that people are “deathly afraid” of Cuomo.

In a series of tweets on Saturday, Boylan explained her experience as an aide to Cuomo.

“I’ve had many jobs. Waitressing at [Friendlys] as a teenager was an infinitely more respectful environment. Even when I had bad customers who tipped poorly,” Boylan explained. “If people weren’t deathly afraid of him, they’d be saying the same thing and you’d already know the stories.”

“Seriously, the messages and texts I receive when I speak the truth about this…it’s a whole book of people who have been harmed … I tried to quit three times before it stuck,” she continued. “I’ve worked hard my whole life. Hustled – fake it till you make it style. That environment is beyond toxic. I’m still unwrapping it years later in therapy!”

Boylan said she didn’t sign a non-disclosure agreement after quitting, and said that Cuomo’s only defenders are “the same group of white people” that stick with him despite his behavior.

“Don’t be surprised that it’s the same small group of white people sitting alongside him at every presser. The same group that he has had by him the whole time, doing his dirty work,” she declared. “If you’re not one of those handful, your life working for him is endlessly dispiriting.”

Boylan’s declarations come just after another former staffer, Alexis Grenell, published a blistering essay with similar accusations about Cuomo’s style of leadership.

Grenell said that despite Cuomo’s polished and warm public image, behind the scenes, he’s a “snarling attack dog who gaslights fellow Democrats and deploys staff to call his female critics “[f——] idiots.”

Staff working for Cuomo have every reason being “deathly afraid” of doing or saying anything against Cuomo. There is a long history of people who are disloyal or deemed unfaithful to democrat politicians having unfortunate accidents or mysteriously disappearing.

I wonder too, James, about the intelligence level of people voting for Cuomo & others who display this kind of character. His hateful, draconian & power control selfishness is not pleasant at all. He’s not a happy person & neither is his brother. I can only imagine being in that work environment is torture. It’s ashame people have to be so fearful.

I can not believe anyone thought he was a nice person, both he and his brother act like thugs, have no respect for the people of New York then throw in the mayor of New York you have a trifecta of asinine stupidity, by gangsters. Wake up New York before your city is completely ruined.

As the Cuomo brothers are interchangeable and only have one brain between them, not a working brain just a brain, and then you add DeBlasio, wow what a trifecta. They are all defective! New York is doomed. I don’t know anyone who would want to visit it!
