Republicans are calling for the Governor of New York, Andrew Cuomo, to be removed from office after one of his aides admitted their office covered up the true numbers on nursing home deaths. According to Fox News, 15,000 nursing home patients have died of COVID-19 in New York State.
That is nearly double the previously reported 8,500 cases. In addition, over 9,000 infected patients were put into nursing homes, something Cuomo’s administration attempted to dismiss. The New York Post was first to report the story regarding the large disparities and undercounting.
Of course, Cuomo doesn’t want to apologize publicly, acknowledging he has lied about the number of deaths under his leadership. But now some want him in jail, with Republicans leading in calls for his prosecution.
It probably won’t happen, because the left-wing media will cover for him, but Governor Cuomo should be removed from office AND prosecuted. It’s bad enough to be a leader when people are dying in a pandemic; it’s a whole different issue when leaders are covering it up.
