The New York State Assembly has expanded its impeachment inquiry to consider whether Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s administration sent top health officials to conduct then-scarce coronavirus tests on Cuomo’s relatives and associates. Members of Cuomo’s family, including his mother, at least one of his sisters, and brother Chris Cuomo, a CNN anchor, were tested several times by top health department officials, sources told the Albany Times Union. State Assemblyman Charles Lavine of Long Island, chair of the Assembly’s Judiciary Committee, said that despite the change, “the investigation’s primary focus remains questions related to sexual harassment, nursing homes, and bridge safety.” Under the priority testing, the samples were expedited, sometimes delaying daily data runs to get rapid results on the “critical samples.” The state Public Officers Law bars officials from using state resources to benefit individuals, including family members.
