“I think it would be appropriate to take a hard look at that,” former New York Governor George Pataki, 75, said in an interview with New York Post. Pataki was referring to the potential move to recall Gov. Cuomo over the “reprehensible” cover-up of nursing home deaths. “I only think it should be used in extraordinary cases but when you really have lost confidence in the leadership in your state, I think the opportunity should exist for the majority of the people to say we want something different.”
“Crime is through the roof,” Pataki added, “You have mentally ill people on the street harassing you and this is Sixth Avenue and midtown in the middle of the day. There is a tremendous concern that things are not as they should be and it’s not because of COVID.”
“I think there are a lot of potentially really good candidates who could raise the Republican banner high and mount a very serious challenge to Andrew Cuomo,” Pataki said specifically of Reps. Lee Zeldin, Elise Stefanik, and Nicole Malliotakis.
