Judicial Report Damning For Ex-Gov Cuomo

A statement by Assemblywoman Jodi Giglio (R,C,I-Riverhead) on the Assembly Judiciary Report on former Gov. Cuomo.

“This report finally proves what we all already knew — Cuomo was a bully, a sexual deviant and as corrupt as they come. Reading the testimony from these hundreds of witnesses was horrific, but now we finally have the proof we needed. New Yorkers deserve their justice, and it’s far past time we got it.

“The families of those who lost their lives in the nursing home scandal still suffer from the former governor’s lack of attention and care, all while the majority of his staff were forced to use their work time to draft the now infamous book detailing his ‘superlative leadership during the pandemic.’

“Additionally, we need stronger whistle-blower laws to protect women and staffers who come forward with allegations this severe. Cuomo actively attempted to discredit the brave women who came forward and called him out on his depraved behavior. The report is simply condemning, the stories were corroborated and it’s overtly apparent that he abused his power.

“My heart goes out to all of these strong women. What happened to them was simply wrong.”
