STEFANIK CAMPAIGN STATEMENT ON CUOMO’S POLITICAL ATTACK ON CONGRESSWOMAN STEFANIK FOR CALLING FOR AN INVESTIGATION INTO THE STATE’S ACTIONS ON NURSING HOME PROTOCOL

May 16th, 2020

Saratoga, NY: After Congresswoman Stefanik called for an investigation into New York State’s actions related to allowing patients with COVID-19 to go back into nursing homes, causing widespread deaths, Governor Cuomo’s Administration attacked Stefanik.

“We urge Ms. Stefanik to do something we understand is uncomfortable for her: stop political pandering and fear-mongering,” said Cuomo’s senior advisor.

“We urge Governor Cuomo to do something we understand is uncomfortable for him: take a look inward and think about the catastrophic mistakes he and his Administration made during COVID-19,” said Maddie Anderson of the Stefanik campaign. “The Congresswoman’s independent record, ranked in the top 5% of bipartisan Members of Congress, stands for itself. Congresswoman Stefanik joined the New York Delegation in asking for an independent investigation into New York State’s actions regarding nursing homes. Thousands of people across the state are devastated by the loss of their parents and grandparents due to contracting COVID-19 in a nursing home, and they need answers. New reports show the number is even more than we know. This was not a political issue until Governor Cuomo made it one – and it is shameful.”
