It has gotten so bad for New York governor Andrew Cuomo that now even AOC wants him investigated.
But the question I have is what is her motive? Does she want to see the guilty punished? Or is it because the Democrats are going to eliminate her seat for the 2022 midterm elections?
There has been speculation that she could try for Schumer’s seat but she would be unlikely to win. However, it is possible she could defeat Cuomo.
At any rate, AOC is calling for a full and thorough investigation into Cuomo’s handling of the pandemic, specifically his policy of sending Covid positive patients into nursing homes turning them into the killing fields.
New York saw over 15,000 people dying in nursing homes unless they are still covering up the numbers in which case the sky is the limit.
Cuomo’s handling of the pandemic is being questioned by everyone except the lamestream press.
The floodgates opened after one of his top aides was discovered to have apologized to top Democrats in the state that his administration purposely lied about the number of deaths caused by Cuomo’s policies. People are absolutely appalled by his cover up and AOC might see some major vulnerability there that she can capitalize on. She might also see the advantage in the 2024 presidential election of a governor rather than a member of the House.
“I support our state’s return to co-equal governance and stand with our local officials calling for a full investigation of the Cuomo administration’s handling of nursing homes during COVID-19. Thousands of vulnerable New Yorkers lost their lives in nursing homes throughout the pandemic. Their loved ones and the public deserve answers and transparency from their elected leadership, and the Secretary to the Governor’s remarks warrant a full investigation.”

The FBI and the U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of New York reportedly both have opened an investigation into the Cuomo administration’s handling of nursing homes during the pandemic. CNN and the governor’s brother, Chris Cuomo, have made a massive push to downplay and deflect from the Democrat’s controversies, as the liberal host has led friendly chats with the scandal-plagued governor over the past year.
Democratic New York State Assemblyman Ron Kim sounded the alarm this week on Cuomo’s behavior, alleging that the governor threatened to “destroy” him in a spat over the state’s nursing home crisis.
