A former adviser to Gov. Andrew Cuomo — who is now running for Manhattan borough president — alleged Sunday that the governor “sexually harassed” her for years.

“Yes, @NYGovCuomo sexually harassed me for years,” Lindsey Boylan alleged in a tweet Sunday morning. “Many saw it, and watched”

“I could never anticipate what to expect: would I be grilled on my work (which was very good) or harassed about my looks. Or would it be both in the same conversation?” alleged Boylan, who worked for the Cuomo administration from March 2015 to October 2018.

Cuomo’s office did not immediately respond to a request for comment by The Post on Sunday.

Boylan also did not return messages seeking more information, and tweeted that she had “no interest in talking” about it further.

“Not knowing what to expect what’s the most upsetting part aside from knowing that no one would do a damn thing even when they saw it. No one,” she wrote Sunday.

“And I know I am not the only woman,” she claimed.

“I’m angry to be put in this situation at all,” saying she can “work hard my whole life to better myself and help others and yet still fall victim as countless women over generations have.”

“I hate that some men, like @NYGovCuomo abuse their power,” she wrote.

Boylan’s allegations come days after she first called the governor’s office the “most toxic team environment.”

Boylan — a Democrat running for Manhattan borough president in the upcoming 2021 election — said that her “first experience of workplace sexual harassment” came when her mother recalled getting isolated by her first boss who then kissed her.

“It was then how I learned how hard it is for women. How hard this world can be for us when we are trying to be taken seriously and help our community. How easily jerks can destroy the lives of women,” she wrote.

“And I promised myself I would never let those kind of guys win,” she wrote.

“I would work hard my whole life to put myself in positions of power to change things. To end the violence & corruption. Give voice to the voiceless. I am not stopping. I refuse. I will never give up,” she wrote.
