BROOKLYN, N.Y. (WWTI) — The New York State Conservative Party Chairman Gerard Kassar released a statement on Tuesday regarding Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s recently released biography.

Chairman Kassar stated in a release that “the public deserves to know how much Governor Cuomo profited from [his] best-selling COVID-19 book,” titled “American Crisis: Leadership Lessons from the COVID-19 Pandemic.”

Kassar’s full statement reads:

“To profit from such a human catastrophe in the first place — after potentially fatal mistakes were made by him and his administration — raises significant questions about Mr. Cuomo’s judgement. He should report how much he made at the first possible opportunity to the people who gave him his job. The governor is currently delaying release of the profit figure until May, when his next financial disclosure statement is due. That’s not good enough. The man who once promised to be the most transparent governor in history needs to be transparent now.”
