I just read that Facebook executive Dani Lever helped Gov. Cuomo’s office try to discredit one of his accusers. She worked to distribute the confidential personnel files of Lindsay Boylan after Boylan accused Cuomo of harassment. She also participated in meetings to advise Cuomo on how to respond to the allegations.

Women came forward with courage to share stories of the governor sexually harassing them and Lever retaliated and tried to blame them instead. She protected a predator because he was a powerful person.

She needs to be FIRED from Facebook for her shameful behavior!

THE BACKSTORY: If you’ve been following the Gov. Cuomo sex harassment story, you know there were some doozies that came out of the State Attorney General’s report earlier this week.

You can read the whole thing here, and while many legal documents can be dry and boring, this one is more reminiscent of a tabloid story.

One of the things we learned from the report is that a Cuomo aide who is now a Facebook exec took an active role in discrediting one of his accusers.

Dani Lever is now a top communications manager at Facebook. But before this job, she worked for Gov. Cuomo and helped leak confidential files about accuser Lindsey Boylan to try and discredit her.

Boylan’s personnel files were sent to journalists by Cuomo aides just after she accused the governor of harassment. The AG’s report says Lever helped those aides pass the files around, even though she was working at Facebook at the time.

The report says, “Ms. Lever coordinated with some of the reporters who received the documents to let them know that the Executive Chamber would be sending them.”

She was also part of a team of advisors who held discussions about how Cuomo should respond to the allegations.

It’s fun to delight in the downfall of politicians on the “wrong” side. But in the case of Cuomo, the report points to a pattern of predatory behavior by the governor. There were young women who felt uncomfortable and threatened by him.

And a Facebook executive helped cover that up and tried to blame the victims.
