Seniors died, Andrew Cuomo lied, and the time has come for the New York governor to not pass go or collect royalties on his so-called “leadership” memoir. The Empire State’s liar-in-chief sent our valued and trusting elders to horrific deaths, gasping for air as Covid shut their lungs. He belongs in a cage, at best.
What shocks the conscience is that Gov. Cuomo took in all the accolades thrown at him from the fake news and liberally-biased media. They showered praise on his phony transparency as his executive decisions sent infected people to spread the virus and cause the country’s highest nursing home death rates. The double-talking Democrat earned an Emmy Award while manipulating Covid data to hide the gruesome facts.
“He needs to go to jail. No ifs, ands or buts,” Fox News personality Janice Dean reportedly said. “We knew that he was covering up the numbers, and now we are getting more and more information and facts that this is true.”
Two of Dean’s family members lost their lives in New York nursing homes after Cuomo issued an executive order that allowed the virus to run rampant. Recent reports indicate that Cuomo urged people in his political orbit to send seniors on the brink back to hospitals or count them as dying in a hospital to hide from responsibility. A federal investigation has been opened regarding his mishandling of the health crisis and subsequent manipulation of health data and statistics. That happened only after a staff member confessed to Cuomo’s misdeed.
A more recent report indicates the New York Democrat played God with everyday people’s lives. He put family members such as CNN host and brother Chris Cuomo at the head of the testing line.
“The recent reports alleging there was preferential treatment given for COVID-19 testing are troubling,” a statement from New York Attorney General Letitia James reportedly reads. “While we do not have jurisdiction to investigate this matter, it’s imperative that JCOPE (New York’s Joint Commission on Public Ethics) look into it immediately.”
Reports also point to celebrities and political allies getting preferential treatment while working families were passed over when testing kits were scarce. Cuomo tried to shrug off the fact-based reports as false or politically motivated as they began to emerge.
“We should avoid insincere efforts to rewrite the past. In the early days of this pandemic, when there was a heavy emphasis on contact tracing, we were absolutely going above and beyond to get people testing,” Cuomo spokesman Richard Azzopardi reportedly said.
The liberal extremist’s callousness echoes of historic villains and mass murderers. But the question remains whether he will actually do time in the big house or not. Everyday Americans watched, aghast, as Hillary Clinton was given a get-out-of-jail-free card after willfully violating national security laws. Now-disgraced ex-FBI chief James Comey gamed the system in her favor in hopes she would win the White House and reward him for lawlessness.
Democrats have also managed to put up a smokescreen in what appears to be an effort to protect one of their own from doing time. Vocal New York lawmakers launched an impeachment probe based on Covid data falsification and a slew of conveniently-timed sexual harassment claims. Impeachment and civil lawsuits won’t put Cuomo behind bars, and that’s the rub.
It’s not uncommon for political coverups to be worse than the crime. More than 15,000 people died in New York nursing homes. The crime is definitely worse than the coverup, and Cuomo deserves jail time.
