NY congressional Democrats call for Gov. Cuomo’s resignation

NY congressional Democrats call for Gov. Cuomo's resignation 1

 

The majority of House Democrats from New York on Friday called on Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo to resign from office in the wake of sexual harassment allegations and his handling of Covid-19 deaths at state nursing homes.
The New York congressional members had been largely silent as Democratic state lawmakers were leading the calls for Cuomo's resignation in the wake of the allegations.
The stunning, coordinated announcements sent shockwaves through the state and could signal a turning point in the scandal. Cuomo has vigorously resisted calls for his resignation, brushing them off as political maneuvers by his rivals. But the congressional group demanding he step down includes members from across the party's ideological lines and included both senior figures connected to the state political establishment and younger progressive lawmakers. Their decision follows another, less than 24 hours earlier, by Democrats in the state Assembly to launch an impeachment investigation that will be carried out concurrently with the state attorney general's independent probe.
At least a dozen House Democrats from New York on Friday said Cuomo must resign, arguing that the allegations have impeded his ability to effectively govern and serve the people of New York.
A source familiar with the conversations that preceded Friday's coordinated call for Cuomo's resignation said the group has been in touch as the allegations mounted, but only agreed to move forward together on Thursday. They decided to wait until Friday morning to go public so as not to step on President Joe Biden's speech Thursday night.

      @dan dansen You might want to look a bit further. He ordered nursing homes to take in COVID patients who were still actively contagious, then covered up the number of deaths that caused. The wall street journal and The New York Times have reported that his aides altered reports for him. That is more than “misreporting”.

    • Maryella Rose | March 16, 2021 at 1:35 PM | Reply

      @dan dansenthe bigger question is why didn’t they want him gone for killing thousands of elderly, they have said for years that sex doesn’t matter. Sex is the cover-up.

    • @Maryella Rose Yeah, you and Tucker repeating the claim, that Cuomo killed thousands of elderly, doesn’t make it so.
      Sorry, but the facts don’t support you claim.

      NY Governor Cuomo ( D) helped draft letter disparaging his first sexual harassment accuser: report

      Soon after the first woman accused Gov. Andrew Cuomo of sexual harassment last December, the governor and his close associates worked to draft a letter attacking the former aide’s credibility, a new report said Tuesday.

      The letter, which was never released, disparaged Lindsey Boylan and accused her of coming forward for “political retribution,” according to a copy reviewed by The New York Times.

      Boylan, one of seven women to accuse Cuomo of inappropriate conduct, first made her claims in a series of Twitter posts — before sparking the sexual harassment scandal against the governor with more details in a post to the website Medium.

      In the days after Boylan’s tweets, at least one draft of the attack letter began circulating among allies to the governor’s current and former top aides, sources told the newspaper.

      The initial intention was to get former top statehouse staffers — with a focus on women — to sign onto the letter, the report said.

      One draft of the letter noted a campaign consultant to Boylan, who is now a Democratic candidate for Manhattan borough president, also worked for a Cuomo political enemy.

      The letter went on to say that Boylan was “supported by lawyers and financial backers of Donald Trump: an active opponent of the governor,” according to the Times.
      It concluded: “Weaponizing a claim of sexual harassment for personal political gain or to achieve notoriety cannot be tolerated. False claims demean the veracity of credible claims.”+=+=+=+

    • Yahoo News 3/18/21- Breaking News : NY nursing home whistleblower: Cuomo’s order was ‘ridiculous and dangerous ‘

      New York nursing home administrator Michael Kraus tells Yahoo News that he warned state officials about Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s order requiring facilities to take in COVID-positive patients released from hospitals.

      A New York City nursing home director tells Yahoo News  that Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s order lastyear requiring such facilities to take in COVID-positive patients released from hospitals was “ridiculous” and that he warned state officials “we can’t be doing this.”

      Michael Kraus, the administrator of the Silver Lakes Specialized Care Center in Staten Island, said he immediately raised the alarm after first hearing about the March 25, 2020, order in a conference call with other directors, hospital leaders and state officials.  

      “I said that’s ridiculous. We can’t be doing this. It’s just not right to the residents,” Kraus told Fox News in an exclusive interview with correspondent Aishah Hasnie that aired Thursday on “America Reports.”

    • @MITandMe NotIvy The New York Times should be shut down for aiding and abetting Cuomo in his sexual harassment of twenty something professional women, the Times once again proves how negligent they are at reporting the facts, they just push political narratives, I feel so bad for those girls who had to choose to ‘come out’ from among others and make a statement against being undervalued and insulted by a sitting governor. He’s pathetic.

      By J. David Goodman and Danny HakimMarch 4, 2021 :
      “In a Nixonian way Cuomo Aides Rewrote Nursing Home Report to Hide Higher Death Toll
      The intervention was the earliest action yet known in an effort by Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo to conceal how many nursing home residents died in the pandemic.

      Both the Federal nd NY State investigations should bring to light the culpability of Governor Cuomo’s through his 56 day order to send COVID infected patients to the Nursing Homes resulting in 15,000 deaths instead of sending them to the 12 temporary hospitals built by the the Federal Government (FEMA) and the 1000 bed Navy Hospital Ship provided by the Trump Administration to NYC “

All information should go threw him. Not the CDC. Lord bless your soul. You mean you forgot. Well baby we’ve been over that lie. We’ve watched the numbers go down. By the record. After he fired that captain and said. I take no responsibility. You have to keep up! All states went down. That’s a old trick. But I guess it’s hard to brake old habits.

      He could be found innocent of all of these accusations and yet we already have decent evidence of him giving nursing homes immunity who were his donors. Plus the evidence of his failures during coronavirus response, including taking book deal money and hiding his responsibility in nursing home deaths. It’s probably the worst scandal of the decade.
