The governor’s arrogance and failure to own up to his catastrophic decisions are finally catching up to him. Not only is his sickening poster getting attention for being tone deaf, but recently, Cuomo’s state health department came under fire after releasing an internal report on the spread of COVID-19. It purports to exonerate Cuomo’s administration and instead blames health care workers for the staggering death toll. Now, New York state lawmakers on both sides of the aisle are calling for an independent investigation.

The fact that this governor refuses to accept responsibility for his actions makes our grief and anger far worse. I know I speak for many when I say we need a non-partisan investigation on both the state and federal level so that this never happens again.

This should not be about politics. It’s about accountability for what happened to our parents and grandparents, who trusted us to look out for them.

My in-laws Mickey and Dee Newman were New York tough. The governor? He’s as weak as they come.
