A supporter of Democrat New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo tweeted to his first sexual assault accuser Lindsey Boylan “we are coming for you,” in March Fox News reported Monday.
Pamela Morely, 41, a moderator for the Women of New York and This Country pro-Cuomo group on Facebook sent the March 17 tweet accusing Lindsey Boylan, the first of several women to come out accusing the governor of sexual misconduct, of lying and trying to “set up” the embattled politician.
“The Women of New York and This Country see through your lies,” Morley’s tweet said. “We are coming for you and the rest of our governor’s accusers. We won’t let you get away with this.”
Boylan, who is now running for Manhattan borough president, was the first woman to accuse Cuomo of trying to kiss her in his Albany office earlier this year.
Since her story became public, several other women have come forward with similar stories and a picture of a hostile work environment around the single Cuomo.
Morely was profiled by the Wall Street Journal on Sunday about the group which has more than 1,100 members.
Morley posted Monday that the group “has been flooded with membership requests.”
According to the private group’s page, it was started on March 13, just days before Morely tweeted at Boylan.
Cuomo, 63, who rose to political prominence nationally with his daily press briefings during the COVID-19 pandemic, is now being looked at by the New York State Attorney General for both the accusations of sexual misconduct and his culpability for the deaths of several thousand seniors in New York through the worst of the sickness.
Son of former New York Gov. Mario Cuomo, he is serving out his third, four-year-term, which is set to expire in 2023.
According to published reports, one of Cuomo’s executive orders during the height of COVID-19 forced ill-equipped nursing homes to take back discharged hospital patients with the virus, causing rapid spread in those homes and death.
It was, however, the women consisting of Boylan and others that really turned the tables on Cuomo to where Democrat President Joe Biden, a big supporter, said during a March 17 interview that Cuomo “should resign” if the accusations end up being true.
Cuomo, who has consistently denied any wrongdoing on either front, said he will not resign the office.
“We all know he is set up,” Morley writes on the social media site’s page. “He’s done wonders for our state, and he needs our support!”
