(WBNG) -- In the wake of new allegations against New York's governor, lawmakers in the Southern Tier are saying enough is enough.

The New York Times recently reported the scandal surrounding the governor's office and its handling of nursing home data goes much deeper than previously known.

According to the Times report, top aides to the governor prevented state health officials from releasing the exact number of people who died in nursing homes for five months.

State Sen. Fred Akshar (R, District 52) told 12 News this is more of the same from the governor, and these latest allegations make him think of the real victims.

"Listen I'm saddened by it, because there are more than fifteen thousand families that lost loved ones, and every day or every week it seems as though they get new information or a new revelation about the truth of what took place," Akshar said Thursday.

There are currently multiple ongoing investigations into the governor and his staff, both at the state and the federal level.

Thanks to these investigations, Akshar said he is confident the truth will eventually come out and New Yorkers will know what truly happened.
