If this isn’t punishable by the law and worthy of a lengthy jail sentence then – really- what is?
Is the average American citizen supposed to lie back in a state of apathy once it’s discovered that our elected officials not only demand our submission, but feel nothing about literally murdering our family members, all for the sake of holding onto the power granted to to them by a bogus China Virus pandemic?
What’s recently been discovered about the crimes committed by ex-Governor Andrew Cuomo of New York is so shocking, so incredibly disturbing that one must brace themselves before reading what really went down.
Here we go…
New York failed to account for 4,100 coronavirus deaths among nursing home residents, a scandal that rocked state leadership and led to several investigations, according to an audit released Tuesday.
The state’s Department of Health, which was “slow to respond to a federal directive to conduct surveys of nursing homes for infection control problems,” surveyed only 20% of its nursing homes from March 23 to May 30, 2020, and officials understated nursing home deaths attributed to COVID-19 by at least 4,100 and, at times, by more than 50%, Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli announced Tuesday.
The pandemic was devastating and deadly for New Yorkers in nursing homes. Our audit findings are troubling and demonstrate missed opportunities to protect nursing home residents. https://t.co/Wy9OX73SX1

The department also stonewalled auditors by imposing “impediments on the audit, including delaying requested data, limiting auditors’ contact with program staff, not addressing auditors’ questions during meetings, and not providing supporting documentation,” the audit, which covered the period from January 2017 to November 2021, alleged.
This was done under Cuomo’s orders as to angle himself a hero while pursuing a multimillion-dollar book deal. It was pure political egotism and personal enrichment at the cost of others’ lives.
“This audit affirms many of the findings that we uncovered last year about the state’s response to COVID, most notably that DOH and the former governor undercounted the number of deaths in nursing homes by as much as 50%,” attorney general Letita James said in a statement.
But as recently as Monday, Cuomo, who has indicated an intent to reemerge in the political arena, was promoting a new ad celebrating his response to the pandemic.
You really can’t make this shit up…
This new Andrew Cuomo ad airing in the NYC market is…something…
"And we led this nation through the frightening Covid crisis"
"I've never stopped fighting for New Yorkers, and I never will"

Under then-President Donald Trump, the federal government opened an investigation into Cuomo’s policy of admitting COVID-19-positive patients into nursing homes after top Cuomo aide Melissa DeRosa acknowledged that the state hid the true death toll amid fears of political retribution, but the Biden Justice Department dropped that inquiry last July.
Cuomo had signed an executive order March 25, 2020, shielding nursing homes from liability when admitting COVID-19-positive patients, a policy that government watchdog group Empire Center for Public Policy found was linked to more than 1,000 additional resident deaths. He rescinded the policy May 10, 2021.
Cuomo, who denied all allegations of wrongdoing, resigned Aug. 24, 2021, after James released a bombshell report earlier that month saying he sexually harassed 11 women, findings seemingly corroborated by a separate investigation from the New York State Assembly months later.
Insiders familiar with New York politics have revealed that Cuomo is more than likely seeking another gubernatorial run.
Something says the whack jobs in New York might allow this to happen…
