It is no secret that Governor Andrew Cuomo's March 25th nursing home directive resulted in the unnecessary deaths of thousands of senior citizens here in New York. His administration lied and then covered it up. Then he lined his own pockets with $5.1 million dollars for his “COVID leadership” book.

To be clear, there is still an ongoing criminal investigation of the Cuomo Administration by the Eastern District of New York and the FBI.

Public officials at every level should remember the thousands of families who lost a loved one in a nursing home. They deserve justice.
