Cuomo throwing pricey star-studded virtual birthday fundraiser event

Governor Andrew Cuomo is taking heat for throwing a pricey virtual birthday holiday reception fundraiser just days after he ordered indoor dining to close in his city to tighten pandemic restrictions.

The event will be a star-studded affair and include appearances from Robert De Niro, Whoopi Goldberg, Henry Winkler and Ben Stiller.

The event will take place after Cuomo turns 63 this Wednesday.

One Twitter user wrote mockingly “$10k for a zoom call with the world’s worst Governor! “The Thursday evening event, billed as a “Virtual Birthday and Holiday Reception,” will feature appearances by Robert De Niro, Rosie Perez, Whoopi Goldberg, et al”

Another wrote “Squander your Hard-Earned Money on a Career Grifter!”

The event will also take place just days after Cuomo was accused by former staffer Lindsey Boylan of sexual harassment.
