federal investigation

WAMC, Allison Dunne

Former Congressman Dennis Kucinich was in Orange County Saturday, joining with protestors in front of a power plant under construction. His visit came days after it was revealed that alleged ties between a former top aide to New York Governor Andrew Cuomo and the plant’s permitting process are the subject of a federal probe.

Dean G. Skelos, the Republican majority leader of the New York State Senate, and his son are expected to be arrested on federal corruption charges. The New York Times reports the arrests could come as early as next week.

A federal investigation is reportedly underway involving a long-standing toy fund in the Berkshire town of Lee.
