“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,” Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) said in an emailed press release on Friday.
“Thousand of vulnerable New Yorkers lost their lives in nursing homes throughout the pandemic,” continued Ocasio-Cortez. “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.”
Ocasio-Cortez is not the only democrat to call for an investigation into Cuomo’s handling of Covid-19 crisis. New York state lawmakers like Jessica Ramos, Alessandra Biaggi and Gustavo Rivera have voiced their strong opposition into how the Governor handled the situation and how he lied to cover it all up when was revealed.
“People died and Cuomo lied then he had the gall to write a book,” said state senator Jessica Ramos in a tweet.
