Lindsey Boylan, the first woman who came forward and publicly accused New York Democrat Governor Andrew Cuomo of sexual misconduct, says that she is being harassed because top Democrats — including President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris — have been silent on the issue.

Boylan spoke out late last week after Cuomo denied the allegations in a press conference and suggested that the women had ulterior motives for making the allegations. Cuomo said, “I won’t speculate about people’s possible motives, but I can tell you as a former attorney general who’s gone through this situation many times, there are often many motivations for making an allegation, and that is why you need to know the facts before you make a decision.”

“The governor has denied all wrongdoing. He got on his platform today and said ‘there are many motivations of why people do things,'” Boylan tweeted on Friday. “He is calling up hate and speculation to be directed to his accusers. All harm and hate directed at the women sits squarely on @NYGovCuomo.”

“It also calls into question the judgment and courage of both @POTUS and @KamalaHarris,” Boylan added in a now-deleted tweet.

“You are seeing blue trolls harass me and other survivors because @JoeBiden @KamalaHarris @SpeakerPelosi @SenSchumer @SenGillibrand @RepJeffries @NydiaVelazquez @EspaillatNY @RepMaloney and countless others senior in the @TheDemocrats are supporting it with their silence,” Boylan wrote on Twitter early last week. “Nothing is sadder than adults who cannot adult. Oh and their blue troll farms, they’re literally paying for this crap!”

On Sunday, Biden refused to call for Cuomo’s resignation when pressed by a reporter, and instead said, “I think the investigation is underway and we should see what it brings us.”

The New York Times reported last year that Biden and Cuomo had a “personal friendship” and a “crucial political alliance.” Biden had reportedly considered picking Cuomo to be U.S. attorney general. Biden also called Cuomo, who is facing a scandal regarding how he managed nursing homes in the state during the pandemic, the “gold standard” for his leadership in responding to the coronavirus pandemic.

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki refused to state on Friday whether Biden thought that Cuomo should resign amid the allegations that he is facing.

“The President believes that every woman who’s come forward — there have now been six, I believe, who have come forward — deserves to have her voice heard, should be treated with respect, and should be able to tell her story,” Psaki said. “There also is an independent investigation that is ongoing, of course, in the state, with subpoena power overseen by the attorney general, and he certainly supports that moving forward. We, of course, have watched the news of a number of lawmakers call for that, but I don’t have any additional announcements from here.”
