First the sexual harassment allegations and nursing home death cover ups, then the lucrative book deal. That’s how it goes, right?
NY Governor Andrew Cuomo is taking a victory lap, promoting his memoir America In Crisis: Leadership Lessons from the COVID-19 Crisis; Cuomo was paid more than $5 million in the deal.
“Very few people were going through what we went through and we went through it together,” Cuomo said. “And speaking for myself, it was a tremendous personal benefit.”

Tracey Alvino, whose dad, Daniel, died of COVID-19 in a Long Island nursing had a reality check for Cuomo:
