Ashby: Nursing Home Death Tragedy Needs Federal Investigation

Statement from Assemblyman Jake Ashby (R,C,I-Castleton) on the recent admission by Cuomo aide that administration had been holding back nursing home data to avoid federal prosecution

“Public trust in elected officials is an essential component of a representative government and sadly something that is far too often lacking with our leaders. The recent report uncovering Gov. Cuomo’s apparent cover-up about the circumstances of the 15,000 nursing home residents who died during the pandemic has further eroded the public’s trust at a time when we need it most.

“I am appalled at the clear and continued effort by the Cuomo administration to suppress relevant data. The people of New York must be furnished with the facts of this administration’s missteps and I will continue to fight until the full story is told.”
