Brown: Gov. Cuomo Lied and It’s Time to Remove His Powers

A statement from Assemblyman Keith P. Brown (R,C- Northport

“We have known for months that the numbers coming out of the Governor’s office regarding COVID-19 deaths in our state’s nursing homes did not match reality. Today, the Attorney General released a report showing that the information we were given could have underreported COVID deaths in nursing homes and care facilities by up to 50 percent. This is why my colleagues and I in the Senate and Assembly, have been calling for more transparency and an independent investigation of the facts. My thanks to NYS Senator Phil Boyle for spearheading these efforts. It is clear that the Governor misled all of us and should be stripped of his emergency powers immediately. My heart goes out to the families of those who lost loved ones, and I am committed to getting the facts and bringing justice to those responsible.”
