N.Y. Taxpayers To Spend Up To $2.5 Million Defending Cuomo Administration In Nursing Home Deaths Investigation

The administration of New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo will spend as much as $2.5 million on legal defense as it is investigated by federal authorities for allegedly covering up the number of deaths in nursing homes during the Covid-19 pandemic, the embattled governor confirmed Wednesday afternoon.

Cuomo, at an unrelated press conference at the Javits Center, said his legal defense in multiple ongoing investigations qualifies as a “state expense,” meaning it will be funded by taxpayers as opposed to his campaign.
