Things just keep getting worse for New York Governor Andrew Cuomo. Even Democrats are turning over him because of his nursing home scandal that left thousands dead of COVID.
A Democrat assemblyman from New York has now claimed that Cuomo threatened him of he didn’t lie for him. He made the claim on MSNBC.
This looks so bad.

Democrat Ron Kim Brings the Receipts Against Andrew Cuomo, and Woo Boy
Andrew Cuomo’s fall from grace has been perhaps one of the better moments of 2021 so far. The Emmy-winning governor (yes, our celebrity class are really that stupid) has had his cover-up of nursing home deaths, and his culpability, blown up in the last several weeks. Figures like Fox News’ Janice Dean, who championed the fight against Cuomo, have been vindicated in dramatic fashion.
Meanwhile, it’s not just those on the right who have had enough. Democrats in New York are turning against Cuomo as well, with one, in particular, making big waves.
Ron Kim, a New York lawmaker, alleges that he was personally threatened by Cuomo to change his story on the nursing home scandal. Kim went on MSNBC this morning to give his account of the interaction.
Here’s the video:
NY Assemblyman Ron Kim (D): "Governor Cuomo called me the next day at 8:00 P.M… And for 10 minutes he berated me. He yelled at me. He told me that my career would be over… And I had… to issue a new statement essentially asking me to lie." pic.twitter.com/z0ljk7Z43M

He even showed his phone:
On @fox5ny, @rosannascotto asks @rontkim to prove Cuomo and Co called him multiple times… he pulls out his phone and reveals “Cuomo” followed by several No IDs and staff text messages contacted him. pic.twitter.com/o9qaqjCHcX

Andrew Cuomo should be thrown into jail for the rest of his pathetic life.
