Tannousis Using Prosecutorial Experience to Find Answers in Cuomo Investigation

March 15, 2021

NEW YORK – New York State Assemblyman Michael Tannousis (R,C- Staten Island/Brooklyn) is committed to using his experience as a prosecutor to assist the Assembly Judiciary Committee in getting to the truth surrounding alleged fraudulent COVID-19 data and alleged sexual misconduct by Governor Andrew Cuomo.

Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie (D-Bronx) announced on March 11 that he would be authorizing the Assembly Judiciary Committee to launch an impeachment inquiry into the allegations regarding the ongoing nursing home and sexual misconduct scandals plaguing Gov. Cuomo.

“This impeachment inquiry into the long list of allegations against the governor is essential to preserving the rule of law and ensuring justice,” said Tannousis. “The volume and severity of the claims against the governor have necessitated our legislative duty to investigate and, if necessary, impeach the governor.”

Interviewing witnesses and issuing subpoenas for documents and testimony are cornerstones of any investigation. With a decade of experience as a prosecutor, Tannousis has the temperament and experience to utilize his skills and knowledge to meaningful contribute in a full and thorough investigation.

“The situation at hand is serious. I will do everything in my power to vet all witnesses and analyze all of the evidence relevant to the allegations of fraud and deceit surrounding COVID-19 data and sexual misconduct by the governor. I am committed to a transparent and full investigation of the governor to ensure accountability and trust in our state government,” said Tannousis. T

annousis was elected to the New York State Assembly on November 3, 2020. His district represents parts of Southern Brooklyn and the East Shore of Staten Island. He is a lifelong Staten Islander and the son of Greek immigrants who came to America to seek a better life after being displaced by armed conflict in Cyprus.

Tannousis is a graduate of Public School 23, Intermediate School 24, and Monsignor Farrell High School. He earned an undergraduate degree from SUNY Binghamton and his Juris Doctor from Pace Law School.

Proud of his Greek and Cypriot community roots, Tannousis previously served as a board member of the Cyprus-U.S. Chamber of Commerce and was a delegate for the Cyprus Federation of America.
