ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - The state Assembly’s investigation into former Gov. Andrew Cuomo concluded that the Democrat’s administration misrepresented how many nursing home residents died of COVID-19.

That’s according to a lawmaker who reviewed the committee’s still-secret report. Assembly Member Phil Steck was among the Assembly Judiciary Committee members who reviewed a copy of the report Thursday and Friday in advance of its public release. The report covers a wide array of allegations of misconduct by Cuomo, including sexual harassment claims. A spokesperson says Cuomo hasn’t been allowed to see a copy of the report.

Cuomo denies misleading the public on nursing home deaths.
