NY Senate leader vows to cooperate with prosecutors


Associated Press

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — New York state Senate Leader Dean Skelos said Thursday he will cooperate with authorities following a published report that prosecutors and the FBI are investigating him and his son.

The New York Times, citing unidentified sources, reported Wednesday that U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara is examining whether the Long Island Republican influenced Nassau County's decision to give a stormwater treatment contract to an Arizona company that hired his son Adam.

The report says the investigation also focuses on $20,000 paid to Adam Skelos by a title insurance company he never worked for.

Dean Skelos appeared to acknowledge the investigation in a statement Thursday.

"I have and will continue to cooperate with any inquiry," he said.
