Green Party of New York Calls for Impeachment of Gov. Andrew Cuomo
2/12/21 - The Green Party of New York today called for the impeachment of Gov. Andrew Cuomo after shocking revelations that his administration purposefully lied to the public for political purposes about the level of deaths in nursing homes during the COVID-19 pandemic. Party officials said this information coupled with the initial orders by the governor that forced nursing homes to admit over 9,000 recovering coronavirus patients and led to over 15,000 deaths in those facilities is enough to warrant impeachment and trial of the governor.
“Gov. Cuomo's actions last year led to the deaths of over 15,000 New Yorkers in long-term care facilities, which state Attn. General James’ report last month revealed was undercounted by 50%. Just yesterday the Associated Press reported over 9,000 recovering coronavirus patients were sent to nursing homes, which surely accelerated the mass death in those spaces. Now we hear from Melissa DeRosa, Cuomo’s chief aide, that the Governor’s administration deliberately lied to the public for political gain. This is unacceptable, and it is a breach of governing duty and ethics. It is now long past time for the Legislature to initiate impeachment proceedings against Gov. Cuomo,” said party chair Gloria Mattera.
“There must be consequences for actions that led to the death of 15,000 New Yorkers and the decision to hide the extent of this from the public. How laughable it is now to think Cuomo released a book on leadership lessons from the COVID-19 pandemic. Will he add lying to the public as a chapter in the second edition? These are crimes for which the Governor must be impeached and prosecuted,” concluded Mattera.
If you consider yourself a Progressive, think about this, the Green New Deal originally came from the Green Party, the most Progressive Party in New York State. And voting Green, this election is essential to help the Green Party retain its ballot line in New York.
The ballot access requirements for the Green Party and other third parties were substantially increased in New York this spring as part of Governor Cuomo's state budget.
Governor Cuomo's actions are a form of voter suppression, preventing voters from voting for candidates that may better suit their values and ideals—the very voters that support demilitarizing the police, increasing public housing, free healthcare, support for Black Lives Matter, and a commitment to ending poverty.
The latest poll numbers in New York State indicate that Biden leads Trump, 61% to 29%. So New Yorkers who support having more choices on the ballot can vote for Howie Hawkins on the Green Party line and not worry that they are adding to a Trump victory.
If you value more Progressive political choices, then vote Green Party if you live in New York.

Join Howie Hawkins tomorrow, at New York City Hall, at 11:00 A.M. to discuss his housing plan for New York State/City. Here is what he will discuss:
To say that the NYC Transit System is in deep trouble would be an understatement. And now that the head of the New York City Transit Authority has had his first town hall with the people, Mr. Byford will be passing around the hat to start funding the repair projects. The only problem is that no single group has $38 billion dollars to give him. All levels of government, federal, state and city are going to have to find ways of funding the repairs that are needed.
