In her quest to obtain justice for all those who suffered due to the pandemic decision making of New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D), Fox News meteorologist Janice Dean says she has faith that the embattled politician will not elude accountability forever in the ongoing impeachment probe of his conduct, as the Daily Caller reports.
Dean has been a fierce and very public critic of Cuomo since both of her in-laws died of COVID-19 in nursing homes back in 2020, and she has sought answers about not just the governor’s controversial policy directing nursing homes to accept known coronavirus-positive patients, but also about scandals involving sexual harassment and assault claims, questionable fundraising, and a lucrative deal to write a book detailing his supposedly masterful handing of the public health crisis.
A formal impeachment probe of Cuomo was launched in state legislature in March, and according to state Assembly Judiciary Committee Chair Charles Lavine (D), investigators have spoken with no fewer than 75 individuals thus far, the Associated Press reports.
Dean has expressed frustration with the endless outrages she says continue to be committed by Cuomo, noting in a Thursday Fox News op-ed, “Every week it seems like [Cuomo] does something to keep himself and his misdeeds in the news, and every time we shake our heads wondering what it will finally take to get rid of him for good.”
Noting recent revelations that expenses associated with the probes into the governor’s behavior are costing New York taxpayers millions of dollars in legal fees going towards his defense against a host of allegations, Dean pointed out, “he’s not only getting away with his crimes, he’s making us pay for them now too.”
Though Dean added that shes “not sure what it will take to finally get rid of him,” adding that “many leaders have been forced to resign for less,” she also expressed to Caity McDuffee of the Daily Caller that she remains hopeful that an appropriate outcome will ultimately be achieved.
“I do believe in justice, and I do believe that they are going to find something on this governor. I don’t think he is going to be able to be re-elected again, I don’t,” Dean declared.
Acknowledging the driving force behind her crusade for accountability, Dean remembered her late in-laws, saying, “At the end of the day we are on the side of the angels, and you know, I really believe that my husband’s parents have kept me going all of this time this full year.”
Emphasizing her conviction that in the end, the governor’s misdeeds will catch up to him, and he will be forced from the political arena once and for all, Dean added, “I have to believe that being on the side of the angels is stronger than the name Cuomo.”
