New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo has said that allegations of sexual harrasement brought against him by a former aide are "simply not true."
Lindsey Boylan, who served as Cuomo's deputy secretary for economic development and a special adviser, has said that the governor sexually harassed her for three years while she worked in his office.
Although he said his former aide had a right to speak up, the governor said he disagreed with her characterization of their relationship.
"Look, 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," Cuomo said. "But it's just not true."
