Conservative New York college students are calling for the resignation of the chancellor of the State University of New York following his alleged involvement in Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s nursing home scandal.
The Wall Street Journal revealed that Jim Malatras — a longtime Cuomo adviser and current SUNY Chancellor — was among the officials who reviewed and requested modifications to a report about nursing home deaths in the state.
Currently, Cuomo is under federal investigation for allegedly concealing the number of COVID-19 deaths in state nursing homes. In March 2020, Cuomo ordered nursing homes to bring COVID-infected seniors back into their facilities.
Lindsay Boylan — one of the women presently accusing Cuomo of sexual harassment — recently slammed Malatras on Twitter for defaming her after raising concerns about a toxic work culture.
While @jimmalatras was the head of @RockefellerInst, the second floor asked him to defame me online after I spoke up about a toxic work culture. Here is the exchange. That’s how Jim worked then and that’s how Jim works now. t.co/QvjUNHXAuc
