  • New York should consider Cuomo recall for nursing home cover-up: Pataki

    NY Post ^ | 2/13/21 | Jon Levine
    Former Gov. Pataki thinks New Yorkers should take a hard look at recalling Gov. Cuomo over the “reprehensible” cover-up of nursing home deaths. On Thursday, Cuomo’s top aide, Melissa DeRosa, admitted to lawmakers that her boss concealed data about the coronavirus death toll among nursing-home residents to avoid having to share it with the federal government. Even before The Post exposed that scandal this week, roughly 40% of New Yorkers said they would favor a recall effort to oust the three-term incumbent if a recall mechanism existed in the Empire State. “I think it would be appropriate to take a...

    Former Gov. George Pataki unloaded on Gov. Andrew Cuomo, calling the COVID-19 nursing home death reporting “cover-up” scandal “one of the worst things I have seen in state government.” During an interview on AM 570 WMCA radio, Pataki called Cuomo’s nursing home policies and actions “inhumane,” “reprehensible,” “outrageous,” “despicable” and “beyond the pale.” He called for a criminal probe by the Biden Justice Department, state Attorney General Letitia James and independent investigation conducted by the state Legislature. “This is one of the worst things I have seen in New York State government, and I’ve been following this for a long...

    Former New York Gov. George Pataki is throwing his support behind Florida Sen. Marco Rubio in the race for the Republican presidential nomination. "I am proud to endorse Marco Rubio," Pataki said today in an interview with Fox News, adding that he believes Rubio is the right person to unite the Republican Party. "Donald Trump is dividing us," Pataki said. "Marco Rubio is going to bring us together." Pataki's support comes on the heels of the Des Moines Register announcing its endorsement of the Florida senator. Pataki dropped his long-shot 2016 presidential bid last month after low support in polls...

    Former New York Gov. George Pataki (R) is calling his supporters in New Hampshire to tell him he intends to drop out of the 2016 presidential race, The Boston Globe's James Pindell reported via Twitter. Since entering the race, Pataki, who is 70, has remained in the lower tier of the polls. The moderate Republican was New York governor for three terms after being elected in 1994. Before embarking on his 2016 campaign, there was speculation he would run in previous presidential cycles. His reported decision to drop out comes weeks before Feb. 1's Iowa caucus and Feb. 9's New...

    Jeb Bush cutting his campaign salaries is amusing given how much money he has raised -- at least according to his GOP presidential opponent George Pataki, who barely has thousands of dollars in the bank. The former New York governor was asked about the report that Bush's campaign is cutting salaries across the board as a belt-tightening measure on CNN's "At This Hour With Berman and Bolduan" on Friday. Pataki said he knows something about tight belts. "You see many of the candidates now slashing their spending, reducing their staff -- and I kind of chuckle, because they had all...

    Thursday on Newsmax TV “The Steve Malzberg Show,” former Gov. George Pataki (R-NY), GOP presidential candidate, discussed the Secret Service’s attempt to find embarrassing information on Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) in retaliation for his congressional investigation and blamed the “anti-American” culture of the Obama administration that uses government power to target citizens, which he said “threatens the freedom of every single American.”

    Bobby Jindal and George Pataki are the next two quitters in the Republican field. That’s the assessment of Republicans in the POLITICO Caucus, our weekly bipartisan survey of the top activists, operatives and strategists in Iowa and New Hampshire. A quarter of Iowa Republicans say it’s Jindal, a frequent visitor to their state, who is on his way out. "He's become desperate," an Iowa Republican said. "He's taken to attacking Trump (we know how that worked out for Perry and Walker) and has nothing going on here in Iowa." Added another, who like all participants was granted anonymity in order...

    Sunday on WABC New York’s “The Rita Cosby Show,” Republican presidential candidate former Gov. George Pataki (R-NY) said Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump’s immigration plan of deporting the over 11 million illegal immigrants currently living in the Untied States and then letting the good people back in the country after being screened, and ending birthright citizenship is “un-American, outrageous and Demagogic.” Pataki said, “I’ll tell you, this is crazy. First we have to secure the border, and know that people come here illegally. But think about the idea. Whether or not it’s Constitutional… Requires a Constitutional Amendment, or, as Sen....

    The Texas senator’s anti-establishment message resonates in northern Nevada. GARDNERVILLE, Nev. — Four Republican presidential hopefuls gathered Saturday at a picturesque Northern Nevada ranch and pounded anti-establishment themes, but it was Ted Cruz who gave the most convincing performance at the first annual Basque Fry. He didn’t say anything new, but the Texas senator’s fiery and forceful denunciation of Washington and political elites from the back of a flatbed truck resonated with the crowd of about 1,500 conservatives — even on a day when Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, Dr. Ben Carson and former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina sounded similar notes....

    Never mind the however many other Republican candidates in pack: former New York Gov. George Pataki wants to go “mano a mano” with Donald Trump on immigration. Last week, Pataki called on fellow Republican presidential candidates to condemn Donald Trump’s comments about Mexican immigrants during his campaign announcement. Trump’s quote: “When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best. They’re not sending you. They’re not sending you. They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems with us. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people.” Since the...

    Pataki sends letter to other GOP candidates asking them to call out Trump on comments regarding illegal immigrants.ALLENSTOWN, N.H. —Presidential candidates flocked to the Granite State during the July Fourth weekend. Former New York Gov. George Pataki and Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal attended a cookout hosted by the Merrimack County Republican Committee. The event was low-key and gave both Republican candidates the chance to talk one on one with voters. Both candidates had something to say about recent comments from Republican challenger Donald Trump. “I am disappointed he (Trump) hasn’t seen that it was a stupid and wrong comment,” Pataki...

    Republican U.S. presidential candidate George Pataki has joined the chorus calling for action against fellow candidate Donald Trump in the wake of his controversial comments about Mexican immigrants. Pataki posted on his website Friday a petition targeting the real-estate mogul -- titled "Stand Up to Trump" -- labeling the candidate's comments "unacceptable." At Trump's announcement speech at the Trump Tower in New York last month, the businessman said: "When do we beat Mexico at the border? They're sending people that have lots of problems, and they're bringing those problems with us." He later added: "They're bringing drugs. They're bringing crime....
