Pataki suggests NY create process for Gov. Cuomo to be recalled, says “I think the opportunity should exist”

Former NY Governor George Pataki, a Republican has floated the idea of NY creating a legal process to recall embattled Governor Andrew Cuomo.

Cuomo is facing harsh criticism from both Democrats and Republicans for his handling of Covid nursing home data and being accused of a “cover up.”

Pataki told the New York Post when asked about a possible Cuomo recall “I think it would be appropriate to take a hard look at that.”

“I only think it should be used in extraordinary cases but when you really have lost confidence in the leadership in your state, I think the opportunity should exist for the majority of the people to say we want something different,” he added.
