You always have to wonder why some people think that they are more powerful than they actually are.
Andrew Cuomo is in some definite hot water these days, and can probably get into some real serious trouble as part of it. That being said, folks like that, when they feel the heat coming down on them will try to take people down with them.
They want to ruin people that are willing to speak up and tell the truth about them.
A New York state legislator said state Gov. Andrew Cuomo threatened to destroy him last week, according to a report.
Assemblyman Ron Kim of Queens said the incident took place Thursday night during a heated phone call — a call that followed the disclosure that the Cuomo administration had hidden from lawmakers the full scope of the state’s massive death toll of nursing home residents who died from COVID-19.
“At first, there was a silence on the phone,” Kim said, according to the New York Post. “Then the governor says, ‘Mr. Kim, are you an honorable man?’”
Kim said Cuomo asked him to draft a statement “to say that Melissa DeRosa said there was a federal investigation and they had to deal with that first.”
DeRosa, who is secretary to the governor, had told Democratic legislators the day before that the Cuomo administration hid the numbers for fear of a federal investigation. Kim was among the legislators who criticized the Cuomo administration for its actions that led to the deaths of more than 13,000 nursing home residents, including Kim’s uncle.
According to the assemblyman, Cuomo told Kim, “You have not seen my wrath. I have been biting my tongue for months.”
“I can tell the whole world what a bad person you are and you will be finished,” Kim recalled Cuomo saying to him.
