Rep. Stefanik: Gov. Cuomo’s Call for Concert Probe Is Hypocritical

WASHINGTON, DC - NOVEMBER 13: U.S. Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY) asks questions of witnesses William B. Taylor Jr., top U.S. diplomat in Ukraine, and George P. Kent, Deputy Assistant Secretary for European and Eurasian Affairs, during testimony before the House Intelligence Committee in the Longworth House Office Building on Capitol Hill November 13, 2019 in Washington, DC. In the first public impeachment hearings in more than two decades, House Democrats are trying to build a case that President Donald Trump committed extortion, bribery or coercion by trying to enlist Ukraine to investigate his political rival in exchange for military aide and a White House meeting that Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky sought with Trump.

Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-N.Y., said New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s call for an investigation into a packed concert is nothing more than “hypocrisy.”

She made her comments Thursday during an interview on television’s “Fox & Friends.”

“It’s the height of hypocrisy,” she said.

“The only investigation that we need to focus on like a laser is the investigation into Gov. Cuomo’s failed nursing home policies.”

In March, Cuomo forced nursing homes in his state to accept patients who had tested positive for COVID-19 and prohibited the facilities from testing patients for the virus before admitting them.

But Fox News noted he did call for a probe into a concert in Southampton over the weekend, where it appeared social distancing guidelines were not adhered to.

Stefanik said New York lost “thousands and thousands of beloved seniors” as a result of Cuomo’s nursing home policy.

“Cuomo is so quick to point fingers and launch investigations into New Yorkers, he needs to ensure that we have an independent investigation into his failed policies when it comes to protecting our seniors and nursing homes,” she said.
