A group of “Cuomosexuals” have formed an online fan group for embattled Gov. Andrew Cuomo — and say they have been bombarding a state hotline set up to report allegations against to governor, according to a new report.
Fans formed the Facebook page “Women for Governor Cuomo” about a month ago — with some members urging people to confront his accusers online, attend pro-gubernatorial rallies and help fund supportive ads.
The group boasts more than 1,100 followers, mostly women over age 55, some of whom say they have been calling the hotline and leaving messages in his defense.
Cuomo, a divorced 63-year-old dad, has been accused of inappropriate sexual behavior, including groping and kissing, by a slew of women, many former aides.
The governor — who gained a large mainly female following, dubbed the “Cuomosexuals,” over his once-daily COVID-19 briefings — has vehemently denied any wrongdoing.
He responded to the allegations against him again last week by saying that while he has “touched people,” it only involved such things as shaking hands, not unwanted sexual advances.
Some members feel that the accusations against Cuomo are politically motivated, while others don’t think they are worthy of possible impeachment.
At least two other pro-Cuomo groups have sprung up on Facebook in the past few weeks.
Lindsey Boylan — a former Cuomo aide who has accused him of once kissing her without warning and joking that he would “mount” her if she were a dog — decried some of the social-media posts that some of the “Women for Governor Cuomo” have put out.
