Andrew Cuomo Set To Rake In Over $5 Million For His Book About COVID Pandemic

Andrew Cuomo’s coronavirus policies led to the deaths of thousands of senior citizens in New York, but he is about to clean up anyway.

The book he wrote about himself and the pandemic is going to get him a massive paycheck for over $5 million.

Maybe he should donate that cash to the families of the people who died on his watch.

The Blaze reports:

NY Gov. Cuomo set to pocket more than $5M from COVID-19 leadership book

Scandal-plagued New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) is set to make $5.1 million from his book, “American Crisis: Leadership Lessons form the Covid-19 Pandemic,” and has already pocketed $3.12 million from the deal struck during the thick of the pandemic.

Most of the funds he’s received so far have been funneled to his daughters’ trust fund.

What are the details?

The New York Times reported the governor disclosed his income from 2020 showing the $3.12 million, and state officials explained that the publisher, Crown, agreed to pay the governor another $2 million over the next two years.

However, the newspaper called the book a “minefield” for Cuomo and Crown, who canceled promotions of the memoir months ago as scandals against the governor grew. The publisher did not immediately respond to The Times’ question of whether they would still pay out the remainder of the governor’s advance.

The book was published in mid-October “as the public health crisis raged,” the New York Post noted, in a deal made by Cuomo “despite his administration being accused of sending COVID-positive patients back into nursing homes.” The Cuomo administration was also accused of underreporting fatalities from the facilities over concerns about political fallout, which could also impact book sales.

Speaking of book sales, they were terrible.

Cuomo deserves to be investigated for his handling of the pandemic.
