New York Governor Andrew Cuomo is under fire from his own political party following controversy over coronavirus nursing home deaths.

A group of 14 Democratic senators made it public they want to strip Cuomo of emergency powers that were granted to the governor related to the pandemic.  Senator Gustavo Rivera is one of them.

“The governor has at times done things the right way, many times has not.  There is no reason why he should be writing a book at about the leadership, his leadership lessons, because apparently the one lesson he should of learned is maybe he should include more people in his decision making.”

Cuomo’s administration is being accused of deliberately not releasing the number of COVID nursing home deaths for fear the feds would use the numbers against the Cuomo administration.
