Looks like anyone calling for disgraced Democrat Governor Andrew Cuomo to be held accountable for his administrations decision making involving nursing homes over the last year might one day get their wish.

The GOP in the state Assembly are moving to start the impeachment process for Gov. Cuomo. The resolution that Republicans put forward calls for an impeachment commission to investigate Cuomo's administration and decisions they made with nursing homes, and taking a look at the accusations they hid data from the feds - something one of his aides has already privately apologized for.

Cuomo is already facing an investigation into his administrations handling of the situation

The impeachment investigation would give them a 60 day deadline and results expected right after, according to reports on MSN and Spectrum Local News:

The Cuomo Administration’s nursing home cover-up is one of the most alarming scandals we’ve seen in state government,” said Assembly Minority Leader Will Barclay.

Intentionally withholding critical information from the public, underreporting fatality numbers by 50 percent and the recent revelation they hid the truth to avoid a federal Department of Justice investigation are among the factors that raise the serious possibility of criminality. It is incumbent upon the Legislature to undertake a comprehensive, bipartisan review of the Cuomo Administration’s policies, decisions and actions on this matter and render a decision on what steps must be taken to hold the governor accountable.”

Cuomo has acknowledged his office should have moved faster to release data on nursing home deaths during the pandemic, but said it first had to respond to a federal inquiry last year.

State Democratic Chairman Jay Jacobs, an ally of the governor, blasted the impeachment move.

I think it's the height of hypocrisy for a group that was silent when a Republican president was referring to the pandemic as a Democrat hoax and threatening to withhold PPE and other vital supplies to New York state and was silent when a Republican president spent 11 weeks talking about a stolen election which he knew was a lie and then fomented an election which ended with three police officers dead, many others injured. We heard nothing from them," Jacobs said in an interview. "It was like Rip Van Winkle."

Democrats hold supermajority control of the state Senate and Assembly. But Cuomo's support among rank-and-file lawmakers has taken a toll in recent weeks, including this week when Assemblyman Ron Kim said in interviews the governor had threatened him in a phone call over the nursing home issue.
Cuomo's office in a statement said Kim is lying.

Democrats in the state Senate are expected in the coming days to scale back Cuomo's power granted last year to respond to the pandemic. Assembly Democrats are expected to discuss that issue next Monday in a closed-door meeting.

Maybe Cuomo should go to jail and not collect $200 on the way. I wouldn't care if he ended up in jail, would you?
