Cuomo created a toxic work environment that dates back at least to his time as state attorney general — and includes rages that can last for days, former aides and associates said Thursday. Cuomo once chewed out an aide so harshly that “he made her cry,” a source familiar with the incident recalled. “Young people work for him thinking they will rise up with him. Older people are stuck because they need a job and benefits.’’  Back when he was AG from 2007 through 2010, Cuomo viciously teed off on a veteran State Police investigator in his 60s who accidentally mispronounced his name as...
    A former investigative journalist has become the latest woman to attack New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, alleging that his harassment and attitude were among the reasons she quit her job. In a social media post over the weekend, Lindsay Nielsen, a former reporter for News10 ABC based out of Albany, said that Cuomo’s alleged “threatening” tactics and “incessant bullying” were among the reasons she opted to leave the news outlet in 2017 after five years at the station. Nielsen said that Cuomo’s administration last spoke to her in a disparaging tone, claiming that the reporter “has a vendetta against him, don’t you!” According to Nielsen, that “was the last time I allowed someone connected to Governor Andrew Cuomo’s administration to harass and manipulate me.” “It was during one of the many accusatory and threatening phone calls I received by his staff members that I realized this behavior was...

    Bradley Cortright February 23, 2021 0 Comments New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D)’s approval rating appears to be taking a hit as news that state officials withheld data on the number of COVID-19 deaths in nursing homes has led lawmakers to call for the revocation of his emergency powers and even his impeachment.  A new Morning Consult poll released on Monday found that 57% of respondents say they approve of the governor’s job performance, which is six points lower than it was earlier this month. Eighty-one percent of Democrats say they approve of his job performance. However, the number of Democrats who say they strongly agree with his job performance has dropped nine points since it was reported that his top aide told Democratic lawmakers that officials intentionally withheld data on COVID-19 deaths in nursing homes. Cuomo’s top aide, Melissa DeRosa, told state lawmakers during a phone call that administration officials did not share data...

However, this did not translate to a...
    The bloom is off the ‘Cuo.’ A majority of New Yorkers believe Gov. Andrew Cuomo mismanaged the coronavirus in nursing homes — where thousands of residents died as state officials covered up the grim tally, a new poll has found. Forty-one percent of voters agree Cuomo has done something unethical — but not illegal — in his handling of nursing homes throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, according to new results released by the Marist College Poll on Tuesday. Another 19 percent take it a step further in thinking he has done something illegal, compared to 27 percent of voters that think he has done no wrongdoing.  Poll interviews conducted between Feb. 15 and 17 come on the heels of a bombshell report by The Post that the governor’s top aide Melissa DeRosa admitted the administration willing withheld data pertaining to nursing home deaths tied to the virus from the federal...

    Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) seemingly dismissed concerns over New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s handling of the COVID-19 pandemic and the fallout in the Empire State following reports that his administration covered up coronavirus fatality data in nursing homes out of fears of a federal investigation. Speaking to reporters on Friday morning, Gillibrand made it clear she was aware of the ongoing federal investigation into the Cuomo administration’s actions taken during the coronavirus pandemic and insisted she would monitor the situation, but said she is focused on her job in the United States Senate. Gillibrand said: I sit on the aging committee in the Senate and one of the things I hope we can do is actually have a thorough review. Older Americans in nursing homes all across the country suffer disproportionally because when COVID got into these nursing homes/assisted living facilities, it spread like wildfire. A lot of our older Americans...
    Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo claimed Friday that his biggest mistake was his failure to do enough to dispel false information. Cuomo responded to continued questions about the number of coronavirus patients who had died in nursing homes after his March 25 order, saying that he had been too busy “doing our job trying to save lives” to fight against the “falsities.” (RELATED: ‘Taking His Powers Is Not Good Enough’: New York Democrat Says There’s More In Store For Cuomo) WATCH: “Those false statements must be countered.

    New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s (D) job approval rating has taken a hit as he battles mounting criticism over his directive for nursing homes to accept recovering coronavirus patients, according to a new poll. The Siena College Research Institute poll of more than 800 New York voters showed the Democrat governor’s overall job approval fell to 51-47, down from 56-42 last month. Questioned on how Cuomo made information on nursing home deaths public, 39 percent said they approve, while the majority, 55 percent, disapproved. “When it comes to making public the data about the deaths of nursing home patients – the issue on which voters most harshly grade Cuomo – he only gets approval from 54 percent of Democrats, while 81 percent of Republicans and 63 percent of independents give him negative grades,” said Siena College pollster Steven Greenberg. “New York City voters are closely divided but downstate suburbanites and upstaters give Cuomo negative...
    The Daily Show host Trevor Noah took a break from mocking conservatives to launch a rare offensive against a fellow left winger — New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D), who is facing a widening scandal over allegations that his administration covered up the extent of coronavirus deaths in nursing homes in order to avoid a federal investigation under the Trump administration. On Monday’s Comedy Central broadcast, Trevor Noah blasted the governor over the underreporting of thousands of elderly COVID-19 deaths in the state. “Wow, really, Governor Cuomo? You lowered your own numbers to make yourself look better? Woof!” said Noah. “And the explanation that they’re going with is they thought the Trump administration would use the high nursing home deaths against them, which, yeah! Usually if you’re not doing a good job, it gets used against you.” He added: “That’s the whole point of data! This would be like if...

Less than a quarter of surveyed likely voters rated his job performance as "excellent" and a third said his job performance was "good."

    Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s $192.9 billion budget plan paints a sober picture of New York’s current and post-pandemic economy, as it forecasts a bleak job market for much of this decade. “New York State employment is not expected to reach its pre-pandemic peak until 2025,” the analysis from the governor’s budget division said. Cuomo’s 206-page “Economic Revenue and Outlook” describes a long winter of discontent with job growth stalling amid a second surge of the pandemic. “With the onset of colder autumn weather, and virus-safe practices such as outdoor dining no longer feasible in many areas of the State, the labor market recovery has since slowed to a trickle, as the State added only 29,500 total jobs and 36,300 private sector jobs in November,” the report said. “With COVID-19 transmission intensifying across both the State and the nation, job growth is expected to slow even further over the winter months until...

    CNN primetime host Chris Cuomo called out South Dakota Rep. Dusty Johnson at the top of his Monday night show, claiming the GOP Congressman abruptly bailed out after initially agreeing to appear to talk Covid relief negotiations, when he learned that Cuomo would also ask him the simple question of who won the 2020 election. Cuomo’s claim about Johnson comes just days after the Washington Post reported that it had contacted all 249 Republicans in Congress to ask if they would acknowledge the reality that President-elect Joe Biden won the 2020 presidential election — and just over two dozen of them acknowledged that fact. Johnson, notably, was not among them. “What is behind the hold up on relief? We already know the main problem, right? The GOP is just a bunch of Retrumplicansm” Cuomo said. “They are waiting on the will of one man, including, sadly, Dusty Johnson of South Dakota.” “I gave him a full invitation tonight....

    NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — There’s no end in sight for the ban on indoor dining in New York City. As the city and state wrangle over who might oversee a possible reopening, restaurant owners hope the negotiating table leads to food back on the dining room table. The big booths remain empty at the Mansion restaurant on the Upper East Side as staffers work to fill orders in what would typically be a bustling dining room. While customers can eat outside, it’s anyone’s guess when they’ll be allowed to eat inside. “Extremely frustrating,” restaurant owner John Philips said. “Restaurants seem to be left on the line to die.” RELATED STORY: Indoor Dining Resumes At New Jersey Restaurants Philips doesn’t understand why indoor dining is not allowed in the five boroughs, but it is allowed in the rest of the state.

I am governor of New York and that’s all I want to be.” Robach asked if he would take a cabinet position in a Biden administration and Cuomo quickly said, “Nope, I’m not going — I was in the cabinet.

    Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo told Democratic New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio to do his job and enforce coronavirus restrictions amid scenes showing crowds of people flocking to bars and restaurants and crowding in the streets, numerous sources reported. Cuomo made the announcement during a daily briefing Monday, where he praised New Yorkers for fighting the virus but also warned them not to lose sight of the dangers of the virus after “rampant” violations of restrictions.

A great deal of the protesters did not wear masks, and chanted protest battle cries, releasing potentially dangerous coronavirus respiratory droplets into the air. But New York Gov.
