The political fallout continues to worsen for the scandal ridden Democrat governor of New York. Now even those in his party are turning against him.
“Nine Democratic New York State Assembly members signed a letter to their colleagues accusing Gov. Andrew Cuomo of obstruction of justice and asking that lawmakers set aside political loyalty and oppose him,” reports Fox News.
The letter from the assembly members allege Cuomo’s administration acted criminally and intentionally:
The letter comes after an aide in Cuomo’s administration admitted that data regarding nursing home coronavirus deaths were intentionally withheld from state lawmakers. Cuomo has been accused of contributing to the high number of nursing home casualties due to a March 2020 directive that prohibited nursing homes from turning away people because they had COVID-19.
“We implore you to set aside any concerns of loyalty or disloyalty to this Governor, or that this matter is politicized,” said the letter. “We must absolutely consider above all the sanctity of the democratic institution that we call the Legislature of the State of New York, and resolutely pursue justice in the face of an executive who we can say without hesitation has engaged in intentional criminal wrongdoing.”
It would appear that the Governor Cuomo is only at the beginning of his troubles.
The letter concluded “This is a necessary first step in beginning to right the criminal wrongs of this Governor and his administration.”
