    Queens Assemblyman Ron Kim — who has been candid about being bullied and threatened by Gov. Andrew Cuomo over the nursing home scandal — says he felt “gaslit” and stopped watching TV for six months after seeing CNN anchor Chris Cuomo playfully interviewing his brother, as the COVID-19 death toll mounted among nursing home residents. “I was on the ground, yelling with my constituents who couldn’t see their loved ones, who knew that COVID was transmitting, and they were literally seeing their loved ones die of agony and pain alone with no funeral,” Kim, whose uncle died of coronavirus while...

    New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said at a news conference Tuesday that if the nursing-home and sexual harassment allegations against New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo are true, "he cannot govern." De Blasio and Cuomo, both Democrats, have long had a bad relationship. They clashed last summer over the George Floyd protests that broke out in the city; they feuded in April over reopening schools; and The Nation reported that Cuomo "on and off the record" relishes in "trashing de Blasio in the press." But the recent scandals that have ensnared Cuomo put the one-time possible presidential frontrunner in...

    ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo has avoided public appearances for days as some members of his own party call for him to resign over sexual harassment allegations. The governor hasn’t taken questions from reporters since a Feb. 19 briefing, an unusually long gap for a Democrat whose daily, televised updates on the coronavirus pandemic were must-see TV last spring. He was last before video cameras Thursday, when he introduced President Joe Biden at a virtual meeting of the National Governor’s Association, which he chairs. He also participated Tuesday in the group’s conference call, which was off-limits...

Critics are calling this a hush money payment in a desperate attempt to protect Whitmer from a criminal probe.Additionally, Gordon assisted in operations at the absentee ballot processing center in Detroit and helped to institute a Gestapo-style regime at the TCF...

    State House Republicans said Monday they will begin investigating Gov. Tom Wolf’s oversight of nursing homes during the coronavirus pandemic. State House Majority Leader Kerry Benninghoff said the House Government Oversight Committee would examine the Wolf administration’s oversight of nursing homes and other long-term care facilities. More than 12,000 coronavirus deaths have occurred in Pennsylvania’s long-term care facilities, which represents more than half the state’s fatalities during the pandemic. Benninghoff, a Centre County Republican, faulted what he described as incomplete testimony about nursing home from Wolf administration officials at hearings. “We believe Pennsylvanians deserve better from their government when they...

    New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio is calling for the state legislature to revoke Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s emergency powers, joining nine Democrats as well as the state’s Republicans in doing so. “The State Legislature,” his Sunday night statement reads, “must immediately revoke the governor’s emergency powers that overrule local control.” Great idea, mayor. But why now?One reason de Blasio lists is Cuomo’s “withholding of information on the deaths of over 15,000 people” in the nursing-home scandal. That fact, you might notice, has been in the media spotlight for weeks now. Even before then, the mayor didn’t seem to think...

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Sunday said the sexual harassment allegations against New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo are “credible.” The California representative joined a chorus of Democrats calling for a truly independent probe into the accusations of misconduct lodged against Cuomo by two of his former staffers. “The women who have come forward with serious and credible charges against Governor Cuomo deserve to be heard and to be treated with dignity,” Pelosi said in a statement. “The independent investigation must have due process and respect for everyone involved.” The statement came as Cuomo, 63, agreed to let state Attorney General...

He maintained that he never touched anyone inappropriately or propositioned anyone.

    There’s a reason that Gov. Cuomo, Emmy-winning TV star and best-selling leader of the fight against the coronavirus, has abruptly gone dark. Actually, there are a few reasons. The fatal moment, politically speaking, probably wasn’t Cuomo’s decision last March — when it looked like the hospital system here could collapse like it had in Italy — to require nursing homes to take medically stable patients back in from hospitals without testing them for COVID and to give both nursing homes and hospitals a legal shield. It’s his refusal, nearly a year later, to acknowledge the literally fatal consequences of that...

    HARRISBURG — During a federal confirmation hearing Thursday, former Health Secretary Rachel Levine was questioned about the ongoing data discrepancies in Pennsylvania’s public reports on nursing home coronavirus deaths and cases. Levine, who was nominated by President Joe Biden to serve as assistant health secretary, oversaw the Pennsylvania Department of Health through the first year of the pandemic, which has killed thousands of people in long-term care facilities. U.S. Sen. Susan Collins (R., Maine) said Levine had assured her that Pennsylvania had accurately reported deaths in these homes, unlike New York, where the attorney general found that the Cuomo administration...
