Queens boys feud: Cuomo assails Assemblyman Kim over emergency powers, COVID-19 deaths and ‘pay-to-play’ politics


Governor Andrew Cuomo railed against Queens Assemblyman Ron Kim on Wednesday, exposing layers of a friction between the two going back years, with each accusing the other of being involved in “pay-to-play” politics.

Kim has been one of the loudest voices in calling on Cuomo to be formally stripped of his emergency powers due the alleged cover-up of COVID-19 deaths in nursing homes as well as immunity granted to hospital executive who donated to his campaign.
