This is easy to believe. Cuomo may be losing some allies now, but think back six months to a year. The left was holding up Cuomo as the perfect anti-Trump. Many people would have done anything to protect him.

REPORT: NYU Law professor attempted to discredit Cuomo accuser
A New York University School of Law professor helped gather signatures for a letter that aimed to discredit one of New York Governor Andrew Cuomo’s sexual assault accusers.
According to a Tuesday report released by the New York Attorney General’s office, Linda Lacewell, an adjunct professor at NYU Law and Superintendent of the New York State Department of Financial Services, helped gather signatures from former state Executive Chamber staff members for a letter that would have discredited Lindsey Boylan’s account that the governor sexually harassed her.
The report stated that the letter, which was ultimately never released, “denied the legitimacy of Ms. Boylan’s allegations, impugned her credibility, and attacked her claims as politically motivated.”
Ultimately, the Attorney General’s report revealed that the governor had sexually harassed 11 women.
Drafts of the letter reviewed in the NY Attorney General’s investigation also contained information claiming that Boylan had “connections with supporters of President Trump” and also alleged that she had an “interest in running for governor.”
According to Lacewell’s profile, she is an adjunct professor at the New York University School of Law, where she teaches “ethics in government.” Lacewell taught “Ethics in Government: Investigation and Enforcement” at the NYU School of Law during the fall 2020 semester, which ended on December 18. The process of writing the letter discrediting Boylan began on December 15.
