Citing Sexual Assault Allegations -- But Not Proven Murders -- Communist NYC Mayor DiBlasio "Calls" for Cuomo to Resign

Two tits are more important than 15,552 dead people.

Gov. Andrew ["Party Tits"] Cuomo "can no longer serve as governor" following the latest bombshell accusation that he reached under the blouse of a female aide and groped her while they were alone in the executive mansion, Mayor Bill de Blasio said Thursday.

"It's deeply troubling. The specific allegation that the governor called an employee of his -- someone who he had power over -- called them to a private place and then sexually assaulted her, is absolutely unacceptable. It is disgusting to me," the mayor said during his daily press COVID-19 briefing.

"He can no longer serve as governor anymore. It's as simple as that," the mayor added.

DiBlasio did allude to the "nursing home scandal" -- but not to the fact that Cuomo murdered 15,552 people.

No, he's just complaining about the bureaucratic deception of hiding the numbers of the people Cuomo killed:

"So many people died in nursing homes. We don't have the truth about that," de Blasio said.

Eh, maybe he means to lightly allude to the mass murder as well.

Good piece at The Federalist: The scandal isn't just that Cuomo (and Murphy of NJ, Wolfe of PA, and Whitmer of MI) killed the elderly.

It's why.

It was always about keeping low-paying poor old people out of the hospitals, so that they could make more money.

In New York, Michigan, New Jersey, Minnesota, and Pennsylvania, nursing homes were required or encouraged to admit COVID-positive patients. The COVID-positive patients then spread the disease to the rest of the residents, and group and nursing homes became epicenters for COVID-19 cases and deaths. Leftists try to brush this logic aside, but a report found a direct correlation between patients discharged by hospitals and COVID-19 cases.

In Cuomo's New York, at the height of the pandemic on March 25, the State Health Department "compelled nursing homes to accept patients who had tested positive for coronavirus." The policy was pushed by the non-profit hospital association, the Greater New York Hospital Association (GNYHA). New York had recently cut Medicaid funding due to budget issues, and given Medicaid is already chronically underfunded, it is possible that hospitals were losing money or at best barely breaking even on poor and indigent COVID-19 patients.

Later, Cuomo's aides inserted a measure into an annual budget bill creating the nation’s most generous and explicit COVID lawsuit protections for health care and industry officials. One study claims that COVID-19 deaths were 7.5 times higher in states with such corporate legal immunity.

The GNYHA is "one of the most influential forces in New York politics." Cuomo received $1 million from GNYHA in his reelection campaign, and the donation was engineered to remain secret until after his inauguration. Overall, during Cuomo's second term his campaign and his state party committee raked in more than $2.3 million from hospital donors.

It gets worse:

So why doesn't the Republican Party tell this story? Maybe Republicans don't talk about this angle because they are beholden to big health care too (although Democrats are certainly more entangled than Republicans).

Of course.

And if you don't like it: Just build your own hospital system.

14 It's more than just the hospitals wanting to keep out poor-paying old people. It's also about the hospital workers unions. They are a potent political force. The hospital workers didn't want to do their jobs and treat these old, sick people. Better to turn them away and let someone else deal with them. Posted by: Elric Blade
