New York state Attorney General Letitia James, who in January released a report that claimed Gov. Andrew Cuomo's administration dramatically undercounted COVID-19 nursing home deaths in the state, will have total control over the sexual harassment inquiry that jeopardizes his future in politics.Sens. Chuck Schumer and Kristen Gillibrand, both Democrats from New York, called for investigative power to be granted to James "so that she can conduct a transparent and thorough investigation with subpoena power." The Democrat & Chronicle reported that Cuomo—at first—wanted to refer the issue to Barbara Jones, a former U.S. district judge, who worked with one of his former advisers. After that idea was rejected, the paper reported that Cuomo wanted James to work with a judge that he appointed to help select an appropriate independent attorney to look into the matter.
