NYC Mayor Eric Adams Accused of Sexual Assault from 31 Years Ago

The accusation of sexual assault against Democrat New York City Mayor Eric Adams, dating back 31 years, has emerged with detailed allegations months after the initial lawsuit was filed.

An unidentified woman previously lodged a lawsuit against the mayor, asserting he sexually assaulted her while they worked together in 1993.

The New York Times disclosed on Monday that Adams purportedly "asked a colleague for oral sex in exchange for career help in 1993 and sexually assaulted her when she refused."

Filed in Manhattan under the Adult Survivors Act, which granted New Yorkers a one-year window to file lawsuits over sexual assaults from decades ago, the woman claimed the incident occurred during their tenure at New York City’s transit police bureau.

She had allegedly sought career assistance from Adams after being overlooked for a promotion. In the 26-page complaint, the woman alleged that Adams drove her to "a vacant lot and requested oral sex."

When she declined, Adams purportedly "forced her to touch his penis and ejaculated on her leg." "The effects of that sexual assault, betrayal, and astonishing abuse of power, continue to haunt the plaintiff to this day," the lawsuit stated.

The woman asserted that she feared for her life at the time due to Adams' status as a police officer armed with a loaded gun.

Mayor Eric Adams has consistently denied the sexual assault allegation since the lawsuit was filed in November 2023. "That is not who I am," he asserted at a community meeting in December. "I want to be very clear: Never happened. I don’t even know who the person is. I don’t even remember if I ever met them before."

The woman presently resides in Florida and reportedly ceased working for the city in 1994. The lawsuit seeks $5 million in damages and names the New York Police Department’s transit bureau and the Guardians Association — a fraternal organization of Black police officers in which Adams was active at the time — as defendants.

She also accused the NYPD of "gender discrimination, retaliation, creating a hostile work environment and inflicting emotional distress."

The new details add to growing concerns for Adams who already faces controversy over crime in the city and the migrant crisis in the Big Apple.
