Now the 63-year-old third-term Democratic governor who plans to seek another term finds himself enmeshed in charges of a cover-up for not fully and quickly revealing how many people died at state nursing homes.
"The probe by the US attorney's office in the Eastern District of NY is apparently in its early stages and is focusing on the work of some of the senior members of the governor's task force", the paper noted, citing one source familiar with the matter.
A spokesman for Cuomo dismissed the revelation as nothing new but confirmed it.
Kim had a response of his own. "I accept responsibility for that".
A published report at the time questioned Kim's change of heart, when he opposed the reforms he had initially supported.
Kim is the Assembly sponsor of a bill to strip Cuomo of his wide-ranging emergency powers, granted to him by the legislature at the start of the pandemic in March 2020.
He explained that as a difference of "categorization", with the state counting where deaths occurred and others seeking total deaths of nursing home residents, regardless of the location. "He attacked me and said that I obstructed justice in a letter".
Cuomo said that the sites will be re-established in three weeks to administer the second doses to those who receive the first this week.
Last week, the governor's secretary, Melissa DeRosa, admitted that the administration delayed the release of COVID-19 death numbers in nursing homes.
Cuomo reportedly called Kim at home the next day, promising to "destroy" Kim and spread how "bad of a person" the assembly man was, according to a statement from Kim cited by The New York Times.
In a statement, Urban Air's owners says, "We thank the governor and his team for recognizing that we can reopen indoor family entertainment in a safe and responsible way, for the benefit of our communities, our businesses and our employees". In a conference call with reporters Wednesday, the governor accused former President Donald Trump, Fox News, and the New York Post of conspiring against him, Insider reported. Heastie tried to make peace between the two Democrats, saying that "everyone involved needs to lower the temperature and work together" to move the state out of the pandemic. She said they were anxious they would be used against them in a federal investigation.
"They have always been fully reported", he insisted.
