Congressman Exposes Gov. Cuomo’s Refusal to Cooperate in Nursing Home Investigation

Bill Clinton Campaigns For Governor Cuomo In New York City

( – On Thursday, Republican Whip and House Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Crisis Ranking Member Steve Scalise (R-La.) once again called on NY Governor Andrew Cuomo (D) to answer questions about his deadly “must admit” order that forced the state’s nursing homes to take in potentially infective coronavirus patients in contradiction of federal safety guidelines.

In the letter, Scalise addresses the recent release of a report from the New York State Department of Health’s (NYSDOH) – the very same department that issued Cuomo’s nursing home order in the first place – which makes the highly questionable claim that nursing home admission policies “were not a significant factor in nursing home fatalities.”

“In addition to being dubious on its face, this conclusion was reached through a flawed methodology,” Ranking Member Scalise wrote. “Disappointingly, it also casts aspersion on heroic frontline nursing home workers in the process.” CONTINUE
