More members of the Hevesi political dynasty are finding themselves in hot water this week as state investigators widen the scope of their probe into the family’s allegedly illicit financial dealings.
The state attorney general is demanding that a business owned by former Forest Hills lawmaker Daniel Hevesi turn over financial records on suspicion that they might reveal improper business ties with his father, the former Comptroller Alan Hevesi.
Hevesi’s Son Implicated In Probe
The guilty plea quickly spurred further investigations by both Cuomo and Albany County’s district attorney, David Soares. Since then, the separate probes have implicated a slew of other friends and relatives — including Hevesi’s younger son, Forest Hills Assemblyman Andrew Hevesi.
Investigators began looking deeper into the assembylman’s campaign records earlier this year after uncovering political contributions from investment firms in which Alan Hevesi had invested millions of dollars in pension funds.
