    In a Twitter thread posted on Sunday, Democratic Party politician Lindsey Boylan accused New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo of sexual harassment. Boylan said that she first encountered workplace harassment when she was in high school. She was not the victim, but her mother, who was “isolated” and forcibly kissed by her boss. “It was then how I learned how hard it is for women,” Boylan explained, saying that she has spent her entire political career fighting for victims and holding men in powerful positions accountable. Boylan said that she went through the same when she worked for the Cuomo administration.

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...
