Things are not looking so good for the soon to be former Governor of New York Andrew Cuomo. The same Andrew Cuomo who was awarded an Emmy Award for his ‘masterful’ press briefings on Covid-19 is in serious trouble for not only the way that he caused many, many deaths in New York nursing homes – but now how he has worked to cover it up!
He cannot be allowed to stay in any type of leadership position much longer. He’s bad for New Yorkers and horrible for Americans.
Even the Communist News Network CNN is turning on Governor Andrew Cuomo, saying the story keeps getting worse for Andrew Cuomo on Covid-19.
Amid the swirling controversy over whether New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s administration knowingly undercounted deaths among nursing home residents during the height of the Covid-19 pandemic in the state, a top aide for the governor apologized to Democratic lawmakers, saying the administration “froze” when initially asked by state legislators back in August about the issue.
Which is a stunning admission. And seems to jibe with a report released last month by New York Attorney General Letitia James that suggested that Cuomo’s administration undercounted deaths among nursing home residents by as much as 50%.”Preliminary data obtained by [the Office of the Attorney general] suggests that many nursing home residents died from Covid-19 in hospitals after being transferred from their nursing homes, which is not reflected in [the Department of Heath’s] published total nursing home death data,” read the summary of the report.
The aide, Melissa DeRosa, sought to clarify her remarks. “I was explaining that when we received the DOJ inquiry, we needed to temporarily set aside the Legislature’s request to deal with the federal request first,” she said in a statement provided to CNN. “We informed the houses of this at the time. We were comprehensive and transparent in our responses to the DOJ, and then had to immediately focus our resources on the second wave and vaccine rollout. As I said on a call with legislators, we could not fulfill their request as quickly as anyone would have liked.”
Cuomo’s office did NOT freeze – they lied. They lied to protect Cuomo and themselves.
They need to be held accountable.
After they are, the Governor’s brother and conspirator, CNN’s Chris Cuomo is next.
