[Ed. – Tina Tchen, former aide to Michelle Obama, also assisted Jussie Smollett during his dark days as a fake hate-crime victim.]
The founder of a group committed to fighting sexual harassment in the workplace advised Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s (D., N.Y.) team on an op-ed intended to smear one of his accusers.
A report released by the New York attorney general’s office said Roberta Kaplan, the cofounder of Time’s Up, advised the Cuomo team about an op-ed the governor wrote to discredit Lindsey Boylan, a former Cuomo adviser who accused the governor of sexual misconduct in December 2020. A top Cuomo aide said Kaplan and Time’s Up CEO Tina Tchen largely approved of the op-ed. The piece, which was never published, “denied the legitimacy of Ms. Boylan’s allegations, impugned her credibility, and attacked her claims as politically motivated,” according to the attorney general’s report.
