Democrat lawmakers in the New York Assembly are going public with threats they have received from Governor Andrew Cuomo to strongarm them into silence regarding his COVID-19 nursing home death scandal.
Democratic Assemblyman Ron Kim told CNN that Cuomo called him while he was at home bathing his children to issue some ominous threats.
“Gov. Cuomo called me directly on Thursday to threaten my career if I did not cover up for Melissa [DeRosa] and what she said. He tried to pressure me to issue a statement, and it was a very traumatizing experience,” Kim said.
