ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) —  The first woman to come out and accuse Governor Cuomo of sexual harassment is calling out government officials in Rochester.

In a string of Tweets Monday night, Lindsey Boylan, a former aide to Cuomo, claims the governor tried to "smear" her through surrogates from Rochester. 

She specifically called out Rochester Chamber of Commerce CEO and former Lieutenant Governor, Bob Duffy about a "mysterious [expletive] excuse" that got him out from his previous position. Boylan also called Democratic Congressman Joe Morelle and Finger Lakes Regional Director Vinnie Esposito "cowards" for being silent.

In another string Tuesday morning, Boylan said Morelle had been on the "receiving end" of a "lot of hatred" from the governor while she worked for him. She went on to claim Cuomo "belittled" the Congressman in his hometown about "some motorcycle story."

News10NBC checked and saw no response from those officials overnight.
