Multiple NY State democrat politicians are calling on Governor Cuomo to resign. Republicans including Tom Reed also echo the call but Reed says he doesn’t expect Cuomo to step down. In fact, he expects to see Cuomo run for governor again. Reed says, “the only way Andrew Cuomo is not the candidate is if he is impeached.” Cuomo has been under fire from republicans over the deaths due to COVID in nursing homes after the march 2020 order that nursing homes and long term care facilities had to accept COVID-19 positive patients into their vulnerable populations. The calls for his resignation from democrats didn’t come until late last month when Attorney General Letitia James released a report showing that the numbers that the Sate Health Department had released were off by more than 50 percent and then an aide in a call to democrat politicians said that they had covered up the real number out of fear. Next came a renewal of an allegation of sexual harassment from 6 months ago and 2 more women coming forward to accuse Cuomo.
