Dem Leaders Forced To Act: Makes Shocking Move Against Gov Cuomo
Democratic leaders of the New York State Senate are moving to strip Gov. Andrew Cuomo of his emergency powers as the embattled executive continues to suffer fallout over his handling of the pandemic, according to the DailyWire.
They've finally broken under public and legal pressure. Make no mistake, every person outraged by Cuomo's mishandling of New York's most vulnerable played a massive role in the media's coverage. In turn that put pressure on the Department of Justice to finally do something about it.
Now that Cuomo is out in the open, exposed for his monstrosities- Democrats can't distance themselves fast enough. Let's not forget, that Democrats were, until about a week ago, singing Cuomo's praise for his handling of the virus- despite his catastrophic death toll.
This just goes to show you how horrifically factitious that party really is. I pity the GOP members swept under Democratic pressures to conform because that party, itself, is formless. They will surely lead the few Republicans who do conform into ruins.
Democratic lawmakers have hammered Cuomo in the days since a top administration aide reportedly admitted that the governor’s team hid health data on seniors over fear that it could spark a federal investigation. Cuomo later denied that his administration hid any data.
Stripping Cuomo of his emergency powers granted during the COVID-19 outbreak would be a stunning rebuke of the governor’s handling of the pandemic by his party allies in the state legislature, according to The New York Times. A vote on the motion to strip the governor of emergency authority could come as soon as next week.
Assemblyman Ron Kim (D-Queens), whose uncle died from COVID-19, bluntly said that “all of it is BS” and a cover-up.
“They could have given us the information back in May and June of last year. They chose not to,” Kim said after hearing Cuomo was blaming the Department of Justice probe for delays in releasing the accurate coronavirus death tally of nursing home residents.
Cuomo cited an exclusive Aug. 26, 2020, story in The Post that broke the news about the DOJ inquiry into his administration’s nursing home admission policy and the undercounting of deaths, claiming Albany legislators should have known about the probe based on that report.
I don't know if you have seen it by now, but Cuomo pathetically tried to push the blame onto everyone else after his aide exposed his filthy secret. In a press release video where Cuomo was supposed to take responsibility, the Democrat blames the staff at the nursing homes who carried the virus in' adding that '98%' of the homes already had covid because of staff members and visitors. A completely unsubstantiated claim that's many disputes. He even claimed that Trump was the ultimate cause of his nursing home woes, even though Trump had been calling Cuomo out for months- well before it became popular.
The public needs to continue to keep the pressure on so that the media, officials, and ultimately law enforcement do not lay off of the Governor and he's made to actually answer to these allegations. It never fails, some bombshell report exposes a Democrat in a complete scandal but falls short of any action once interest in the scandal passes.
