From covering up nursing home deaths to numerous allegations of sexual harassment and assault, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo is embroiled in several major scandals.
So far he’s refused to step aside and resign.
But the Albany police just opened up a criminal investigation that will end Andrew Cuomo’s political career.
The Fake News Media and the radical Left spent all of 2020 championing New York Democrat Governor Andrew Cuomo’s draconian response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Not only did they call him an example for other Governors, but they also attacked Republican Governors who didn’t follow Cuomo’s lead by enacting state-wide lockdowns, mask mandates, and authoritarian measures in their own states.
Of course, Cuomo loved his new fame, even releasing a new book and floating the idea of a future presidential run.
However, in recent weeks, senior officials revealed how Andrew Cuomo intentionally covered up COVID-related nursing home deaths in fear of a Justice Department investigation into his order to force Coronavirus positive patients into those same homes.
But that was only the beginning of Andrew Cuomo’s downfall.
Shortly after the nursing home scandal blew wide open, Cuomo also got hit with numerous sexual harassment allegations from current and former members of his staff.
The Albany police even opened up a criminal investigation into one of the allegations.
And now Andrew Cuomo’s career is coming to an end, with 59 Democrats, including New York City Mayor Bill De Blasio, demanding he immediately step down and resign.
“He can no longer serve as Governor. It’s as simple as that,” De Blasio said.
However, since Cuomo is so far refusing to resign, members of the New York Legislature just took the first step toward his impeachment.
“The Democratic Conference is taking the first step toward impeachment by opening an investigation with full subpoena power to obtain facts and testimonies under oath,” Democratic Assemblyman Ron Kim said in a statement.
“Some members, including myself, argued that we had enough admission to proceed with impeachment today but the conference is leaning toward setting up the process and structure toward impeachment.”
Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie also plans on taking action, writing that “in light of the allegations concerning the Governor over the last several weeks, I will be meeting with members in conference today on potential paths forward.”
However, Heastie is under fire from not taking action quickly enough, with one of Cuomo’s accusers even saying that she “literally cannot comprehend how little courage [Heastie] must have to avoid doing the right thing,” adding that “We need accountability not theatrics.”
It’s unlikely that Cuomo will survive both of these scandals.
But Democrats have survived worse in the past. Only time will tell.
