ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — One of Gov. Andrew Cuomo's accusers spoke out about the governor's future.

Former aide Lindsey Boylan was at a rally in New York City this weekend demanding his impeachment.

She was the first woman to accuse the governor of sexual harassment. Boylan says the governor suggested playing strip poker on a state plane and that he kissed her on the lips as she was leaving a meeting in his office.

Boylan is now one of eight women who have accused the governor of sexual harassment or behaving inappropriately.

"In December, I spoke truth to power on the harassment and bullying I faced working for Governor Cuomo," Boylan said. "And when the governor should have been focused on leading us out of this pandemic, he was instead focused on covering up the deaths of 15,000 New Yorkers and smearing me and my reputation."

Cuomo has insisted that he's never made inappropriate advances and said he will not resign.
