Disgraced New York Governor Andrew Cuomo was hit with more bad news on Tuesday after the state ethics committee ordered him to return the millions he made from his book on his leadership through the Covid-19 pandemic.

The New York Post reports:

The extraordinary resolution was approved by the Joint Commission on Public Ethics on Tuesday in a 12 to 1 vote — coming a month after the ethics agency voted to revoke its prior approval allowing Cuomo to earn outside income from his book, “American Crisis: Leadership Lessons from the COVID-19 Pandemic” while he was still governor and New York was still battling the deadly viral bug.

JCOPE rescinded its approval after concluding that Cuomo violated pledges not to use state resources or government staffers to prepare the book.

The resolution, drafted by commissioner David McNamara, a Senate Republican appointee, said Cuomo now “lacked the legal authority to engage in outside activity and receive compensation in regard to the book” since JCOPE rescinded its approval.

“Gov. Cuomo is not legally entitled to retain compensation…for any form of outside activity related to the book,” McNamara said.

Andrew Cuomo has 30 days to return the funds to New York Attorney General Letitia James who will then decide how the funds should be re-allocated.

Just a modicum of justice for all the deaths he caused in NURSING HOMES.

That DISGRACED governor should be paying out a lot more. All that money (and more) should be allocated to all those that lost loved ones that died alone in those rest homes. On top of that he should be doing a bunch of community service.He better buy a lot of chapstick,because he has thousands or asses to kiss. Serves him right.

The money should be sent to the heirs of the people Cuomo helped kill in nursing homes

If Cuomo provided leadership on Covid then Custer provided leadership on winning battles.
