BILL de Blasio has mocked Andrew Cuomo’s alleged giant hand obsession after it emerged the New York governor had a dartboard with the Mayor’s face in it.
The revelation about the Governor's dartboard was made by Lindsey Boylan, one of the women he is accused of sexually harassing.Andrew Cuomo had a picture of Bill de Blasio in a dartboard The New York Mayor hit back with a jibe about the Governor's alleged big hand obsessionCredit: Twitter
The pair have an antagonistic relationship stemming from the Cuomo’s handling of the pandemic and earlier this month De Blasio called for the Governor to quit over the abuse allegations.
In an interview with the New Yorker, Boylan recalled seeing a dartboard bearing a photo of de Blasio during a party in the pool house at the Governor’s Albany mansion.
“I couldn’t believe how brazen that was,” Boylan told the magazine.
Earlier this month, another of Cuomo's accusers Charlotte Bennett said the New York governor was focused on his hand size.
De Blasio hit back at his rival when asked about it at a press conference.

"With those big big hands, how could he possibly hold those tiny darts?”
“It's just like frat house humor. It's not something you would like to see from someone who has serious leadership responsibilities, but it is what it is.''
Bennet told New York state investigators about Cuomo’s alleged hand obsession during a four-hour Zoom meeting.
“One piece of new information that came to light today was the Governor’s preoccupation with his hand size and what the large size of his hands indicated to Charlotte and other members of his staff,” Bennett’s lawyer Debra Katz said in a statement.
Last week de Blasio said Cuomo “can no longer serve as governor” following the “deeply troubling” allegation he groped an aide under her shirt.
On Friday Alyssa McGrath, an executive assistant to the New York governor, became the eighth woman to come forward alleging sexual harassment by Cuomo.
He would also make suggestive comments to her and another aide she worked with, she alleged.
