Last spring, as the federal government seemed unable or unwilling to concoct a national plan to confront the coronavirus pandemic, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo became something of a hero to people looking for stable leadership. But, recently, Cuomo’s profile has changed. Accusations that his administration misreported the number of COVID-19 deaths in nursing homes were followed by accusations that Cuomo had personally threatened elected officials to cover up those discrepancies in the data. And, in the past four months, six women have accused Cuomo of sexual harassment. Nick Paumgarten, who wrote a profile of Cuomo for The New Yorker, joins the guest host Eric Lach to discuss the failures and successes of Cuomo’s administration, and whether he can hold on to power in New York.
