You tell me: Is this the point where Cuomo is eaten alive for sending old people in havens of infection to meet their demise?

Careful ... Not the MudPit ... Finally some 'real' political news to share.
You tell me: Is this the point where Cuomo is eaten alive for sending old people in havens of infection to meet their demise? You might hear me say that COVID-19 is just another Corona Virus, but that doesn't mean a Corona virus won't kill old people. Especially if those old people aren't given immediate and appropriate treatment.
Full Title: NY Dems Move To End Cuomo Emergency Powers As FBI Launches Probe; Lawmaker Says Gov Threatened To "Destroy" Him
It is looking increasingly certain that Democrats in the NY State legislator - both the state assembly and the Senate - will move to strip Gov. Andrew Cuomo of his emergency COVID powers, imposed nearly 1 year ago, just days after the first cases were confirmed in New York.
Overnight, a flurry of unflattering news reports hit. In one, a New York Democrat, Assemblyman Ron Kim, said the governor had threatened to "destroy" him after Kim criticized a top Cuomo staffer heard on tape telling state lawmakers that Cuomo had worried the Trump Administration would try to use deaths in NY's nursing homes - eventually found to be nearly twice the number initially reported - as a "political football" to attack Cuomo.
More importantly for Cuomo, it was reported last night that leaders of the New York State Senate would move to strip Cuomo of his emergency pandemic powers granted during the pandemic, an extremely rare rebuke for the governor from Democrats within his own party. The Senate’s measures, which could be voted on as soon as next week, highlight the growing animosity between Cuomo and state lawmakers since the governor admitted to intentionally withholding critical data on virus-related deaths from the state legislature in a Monday holiday press briefing.
Cuomo certainly knew his confinement of these old folk would end in some of them dying. I think he should be appropriately charged.
Cuomo Aides Rewrote Nursing Home Report to Hide Higher Death Toll
Top aides to Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo were alarmed: A report written by state health officials had just landed, and it included a count of how many nursing home residents in New York had died in the pandemic.
The number — more than 9,000 by that point in June — was not public, and the governor’s most senior aides wanted to keep it that way.
They rewrote the report to take it out, according to interviews and documents reviewed by The New York Times.
The extraordinary intervention, which came just as Mr. Cuomo was starting to write a book on his pandemic achievements, was the earliest act yet known in what critics have called a months-long effort by the governor and his aides to obscure the full scope of nursing home deaths.
