The New York State Assembly authorized an impeachment investigation on March 11, against Gov. Cuomo over allegations of sexual harassment by several of his former female employees coupled with a cover-up of CCP Virus deaths in nursing homes, the New York Post reported.

Democratic Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie announced the momentous decision, stating that he was “authorizing the Assembly Judiciary Committee to begin an impeachment investigation, led by Chair Charles D. Lavine, to examine allegations of misconduct against Governor Cuomo.”

“The reports of accusations concerning the governor are serious,” Heastie said. “The committee will have the authority to interview witnesses, subpoena documents, and evaluate evidence, as is allowed by the New York State Constitution.”

If the impeachment against Cuomo is approved by the Assembly made up of 106 Democrats, 43 Republicans and 1 independent, Lt. Gov. Kathy Hochul would automatically become acting governor pending a hearing before the state Senate and the seven-member Court of Appeals.

Unfortunately, Democrats have placed greater importance on the governor’s sexual allegations than on the cover-up of nursing home deaths, an exponentially more tragic and policy-relevant event.

At the peak of the pandemic, Cuomo ordered nursing homes and retirement homes to receive patients infected with the Chinese virus and recovering patients into their facilities with the infamous “March 25 order.”

As a result, contagions multiplied in nursing homes and many elderly people died, already the most at-risk population because the CCP Virus is more deadly in frail people.

However, Cuomo underreported by 50% the actual death toll, which according to leaked audios from his top aide, was done intentionally so that the tragedy would not be used against him.

It smells like a political maneuver from Democrats

Far from being remorseful, the Democrat was arrogant and aggressive in the face of pressure from the press, and even from his peers in the Democratic Party who also called for his resignation.

Cuomo said he would not resign and that only impeachment would get him out of office.

Relatives of nursing home victims have expressed their discomfort with how the matter is being handled, highlighting sexual harassment over the deaths of people.

Grace Colucci, whose 89-year-old father John Daly died last spring after contracting the CCP Virus in a New York nursing home, said in an interview with Fox New, “It seems like the focus and the outcry of the Democrats in New York state have brought on so much reaction of outrage on the sexual harassment, and they have totally ignored what he has done involving the nursing home scandal, his cover-up, his disregard for their attempts to have hearings.”

She said she wants Cuomo to face obstruction of justice charges, as a simple resignation would not be fair.

“As far as a resignation, I feel that that would be an escape for the governor,” she told Fox News. “I think that he would go off and spend the rest of his life maybe getting a job on CNN. He can do a spot with his brother.”
