Not since Hillary Clinton blithely brushed off the deaths of Americans at Benghazi, has a politician so ignored, almost laughed off, completely preventable nursing home deaths under his watch as NY governor. Two women are determined Andrew Cuomo won't get away with it.
FNC: "Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-N.Y., is calling for a federal investigation into New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo's administration, which has been slammed for undercounting coronavirus-related nursing home deaths. The congresswoman told 'Justice with Jeanine Pirro' Saturday she believes New York Commissioner of Health Dr. Howard Zucker should resign from his post after the state's Attorney General Letitia James released a report Thursday suggesting the Department of Health could have miscounted deaths by nearly 50%. Stefanik then called for the resignation of Gov. Cuomo himself if a federal investigation into the claims proves a 'criminal coverup.'"
"I want to see a federal investigation because I think there were criminal acts conducted by the governor, by his senior staff. I want a very public and transparent investigation,"
Stefanik said. "I think he should resign if there's a criminal coverup, which I believe there is...What was most telling ... they knew the numbers, they put them out the same day, which shows they were trying to cover them up. There are more questions than answers when you look at the 76-page report,"
the NY Republican continued. "This is the beginning of pursuit to justice, not the end. I would urge the attorney general to continue moving that process forward...This is why the governor has been able to stonewall is because they have not issued those subpoenas. This has been not just a nursing home scandal but a criminal coverup, a corruption scandal at the highest levels of New York state government."
In related news, FNC meteorologist Janice Dean, who lost both her father in law and mother in law in Cuomo's death camps/nursing homes, is outraged that the leftist press tried to muzzle a friend of hers who tried to make a point about Cuomo's malfeasance.
"So [NBC News' Lester Holt] censored one of my friends who lost a loved one in a nursing home,"
Dean said Saturday. "She wanted to say '[Andrew Cuomo] failed us' in the interview and they told her to say 'New York failed us' instead. The mainstream is still protecting this guy. Disgusting."
"His father didn't die in a nursing home thanks to his son ordering Covid positive patients into their facility,"
Dean added angrily on twitter.
The Cuomo administration had a limp response. "DOH [Department of Health] does not disagree that the number of people transferred from a nursing home to a hospital is an important data point, and is in the midst of auditing this data from nursing homes,"
State Health Commissioner Dr. Howard Zucker said. Then Cuomo himself added, "But who cares ... died in a hospital, died in a nursing home, they died."
A truly barbarous response from a despicable megalomaniacal Democrat politician.
