Sexual harassment allegations cost New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo his job. Now, many want to see him answer for a scandal that cut to the heart of his reputation as a pandemic hero and may have had life-and-death consequences - his administration's handling of outbreaks in nursing homes.
Families of the more than 15,000 New Yorkers who have died of COVID-19 in state nursing homes say they want accountability, and are urging state lawmakers and the U.S. Justice Department to keep investigating Cuomo after he leaves office.
Among the most controversial moves by his administration: A policy that effectively forced nursing homes to admit recovering virus patients, and a decision to obscure the true death toll in facilities.
A report from the attorney general's office in January showed Cuomo's administration undercounted deaths in nursing homes by at much as 50%.
Health Commissioner Howard Zucker responded at the time, saying deaths were not undercounted, but separated by those occurring inside facilities and those outside.
