Lightfoot says she was 'sexually harassed in a workplace,' sympathizes with Cuomo accusers

Acknowledging she, too, has been “sexually harassed in a workplace setting,” Mayor Lori Lightfoot on Tuesday sympathized with three women who have come forward to accuse New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo of sexual harassment.

The mayor didn’t say when she was sexually harassed in the workplace or by whom. Nor did she say what job she held at the time or whether she filed a complaint against her alleged harasser.

Top aides offered no further details on the mayor’s remarks.

Lightfoot simply used her personal experience to explain why she feels a personal connection to three women who have accused Cuomo of sexual harassment and why she believes this “Me, too” moment cannot be ignored.

“Every woman who has been sexually harassed in a workplace setting, as I have been, understands how difficult it is for a woman to come forward and to speak her truth,” the mayor said.
