Lindsey Boylan, a former adviser to New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D), alleged on Twitter Sunday that the governor sexually harassed her "for years."

Boylan, who is now running for Manhattan borough president, served as deputy secretary for economic development and special adviser from 2015 to 2018. She claimed that many people "watched" her being sexually harassed, and she 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?"

Boylan did not respond to requests from NBC News for comment, and tweeted that she has "no interest in talking to journalists. I am about validating the experience of countless women and making sure abuse stops." Cuomo spokeswoman Caitlin Girouard told NBC New York there is "simply no truth to these claims."
