Last week Cuomo shamelessly tried to blame nursing home staff for the thousands of deaths his own orders caused by putting out a phony report with shady data.

Republicans in Congress exposed him.

This isn’t over—we won’t stop until he’s held accountable.

EXCLUSIVE: In letter to Cuomo, Scalise blasts ‘dubious’ report deflecting blame on nursing home deaths

House Minority Whip Steve Scalise sent a scathing letter to Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, accusing him of producing a faulty report that deflected blame from his administration for thousands of coronavirus nursing home deaths.

In addition to being dubious on its face, this conclusion was reached through a flawed methodology,” Scalise wrote to Cuomo on Thursday in a letter obtained by the Washington Examiner. “Disappointingly, it also casts aspersions on our heroic frontline nursing home workers in the process.”

Among the flaws, Scalise wrote, is the report’s claim that coronavirus patients readmitted into nursing homes from hospital treatment were no longer contagious.

This assessment is fundamentally flawed from the outset because it only accounts for patient deaths in nursing home facilities and does not conclude potentially readmission-related deaths that occurred after nursing home patients were transported to hospitals,” Scalise wrote. “This flawed use of data incorrectly colors every assertion made in the report.”
