Some members of Governor Cuomo's own party are pushing for him to be censured for how his administration handled the spread of COVID-19 in nursing homes.

Eleven members of the state Democratic Committee believe the governor's office withheld information about the number of people who died due to coronavirus in those facilities. They're also criticizing the governor for an alleged verbal attack against Democratic Assemblyman Ron Kim. State party Chairman Jay Jacobs says the committee should be mainly focused on finding candidates for public office instead of getting involved in issues he believes could be a distraction.
