Cuomo denied this, but immediately followed suit: Kim, a native of South Korea, was a crook who led an old vendetta against him. Cuomo “can slander me as much as he wants,” Kim replied coldly – that doesn’t change his “deadly incompetent management.”
The internal party quarrel does indeed have a fatal background. A year after New York became the global hot spot of the pandemic and Cuomo the telegenic savior, its star is extinguished. A scandal about the deaths in old people’s homes is now fueling a revolt from within its own ranks, plus confused corona rules, massive vaccination problems and his crude management style. Republicans and Democrats alike want to chase him off, the FBI is investigating – and Cuomo’s stubbornness only makes things worse.
