New York families who lost loved ones in nursing home crisis to hold 'mock funeral for Gov. Cuomo

New York families, who lost elderly loved ones during the state's coronavirus crisis this spring, plan to hold a "mock funeral" targeting New York Gov.

In fact, in a book that was published this week about his response to the pandemic, Cuomo blamed Republicans for his scandal.

"By early spring, Republicans needed an offense to distract from the narrative of their botched federal response — and they needed it badly," Cuomo wrote.

Daniel Arbeeny, who lost his father and three other elderly family members in the nursing home crisis, told the Post that a hearse has been rented for the event, which will carry a casket filled with thousands of pages from Cuomo's book.

Rich Azzopardi, a spokesman for the governor, dismissed the families, according to the Post, and continued to blame Republican's for Cuomo's order.
