WASHINGTON — NY Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez called for an investigation into Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s mounting nursing home crisis on Friday.
“I support our state’s return to co-equal governance and stand with our local officials calling for a full investigation of the Cuomo administration’s handling of nursing homes during COVID-19,” she wrote in a statement.
The Cuomo administration is under fire over its alleged cover-up of New York nursing home deaths, which a state attorney general probe found were 50 percent higher than state authorities said.
The FBI and the US Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of New York have since opened an investigation into Cuomo’s handling of the crisis, sources told The Post on Wednesday.
