    Lindsey Boylan, a former aide for Democratic New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, was the first woman to accuse the 63-year-old of sexual misconduct. Back in December, the 36-year-old alleged Cuomo "sexually harassed me for years" and kissed her "on the lips" after a meeting. The governor has denied all allegations of sexual misconduct.

    As New York State Attorney General Letitia James probes allegations leveled against Cuomo, Boylan took to social media and attempted to draw comparisons between her former boss and Star Wars' resident crime-boss space-slug, Jabba the Hutt. 

    "Just the good old office welcome to women in the governor’s office of New York," she tweeted Thursday evening, along with a picture of Jabba attempting to lick Princess Leia as she struggles to escape his grip. 

    Boylan, a Democrat running for president of New York City's Manhattan Borough, previously compared the NY governor to the Tatooine gangster in a March 9 tweet. 

    Some netizens viewed the image as uncouth, considering the seriousness of the allegations leveled against Cuomo. 

    However, others went along with the joke, and some expressed support for Boylan. 

    The state's attorney general announced earlier this month that Joon Kim, former US attorney for the Southern District of New York, and employment discrimination lawyer Anne Clark would be leading the probe into sexual misconduct allegations leveled against Cuomo.
