SARATOGA, N.Y. (NEWS10) — Rep. Elise Stefanik, a U.S. Congressmember representing the North Country of New York, wants an independent investigation into Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo. This follows an allegation of sexual harassment made by a former aide, Lindsey Boylan, on Sunday.
Stefanik released the following statement:
The statement from Stefanik also includes a list of quotations attributed to the governor, notably: “The brave women who chose to come forward deserve swift and definitive justice in this matter.”

“I heard about the tweet and what it said about comments that I had made. And it’s not true,” he said. “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.”
