MORE PRESSURE: Bill DeBlasio Calls For Full Investigation Into Cuomo’s Nursing Home Scandal

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has made an attempt to chalk up the controversy surrounding his nursing home scandal to partisan politics, and despite the media’s complicity and their favoritism towards the New York Governor, the issue doesn’t seem to be going away any time soon.

The questions around Cuomo’s handling of the pandemic keep making the rounds and his administration has been forced to admit that the nursing home deaths have topped 15,000. That is 10,000 more than what was reported by the state by the end of January.

Now, even New York City Mayor Bill DeBlasio has joined the voices that are demanding an explanation by calling for a full investigation of Cuomo’s actions.

“I have not spoken to [Cuomo]. No, I do not accept his explanation,” the Mayor said during a Press Conference. “There needs to be a full investigation…we need to get the whole truth and make sure nothing like this ever happens again,” he added.

Granted, Governor Cuomo and Mayor DeBlasio have had a long and tense relationship. His opposition this time, however, joins a chorus of Democrat lawmakers in the state of New York who have also for Governor Cuomo’s impeachment.

New York State Assemblyman Ron Kim, who said Cuomo threatened to ruin his career for speaking out, is leading the charge in the call for the Governor to be impeached.

“Cuomo abused his powers to hide life and death information from the Department of Justice that prevented lawmakers from legislating – like fully repealing corporate immunity for nursing homes. That is an impeachable offense,” Kim wrote on Twitter on Monday.



In another tweet he wrote: “The only way to protect the integrity of the co-equal branch of the state government, AKA the ‘People’s House,’ is to start an impeachment.”

Kim was one of more than a dozen Democratic lawmakers in New York pushing for Cuomo to be stripped of the executive powers that were granted to him throughout the pandemic.

By a simple majority, the New York State Assembly can vote to impeach the governor. If that happens, the case would go to the State Senate for trial. Unlike the U.S. Constitution, New York’s state Constitution does not include specific guardrails to define impeachable conduct, according to PIX11.
