Feds looking into Aqueduct deal

From WPIX:

PIX News has learned that federal prosecutors are investigating Governor David Paterson's awarding of a lucrative contract to a politically connected group to run a gaming center at Aqueduct Raceway.

The embattled Governor who appears to have dodged the bullet of rumors and innuendo that had been circulating over a purported "bombshell" story being prepared by the New York Times, is now part of a probe by the Eastern District U.S. Attorney's office in Brooklyn.

Two reliable sources confirm the investigation is "very fresh," but could not say precisely what it is prosecutors are looking at other than questions about public integrity.

Paterson has been under fire by members of his own staff and legislative leaders for awarding the contract to Aqueduct Entertainment Group, a group that includes former Congressman Rev Floyd Flake, whose political support the Governor had been aggressively seeking.

So many "relible sources" saying so many terrible things about this Governor lately. Always anonymously. Who could be behind this obviously orchestrated campaign? We haven't seen anything like this in New York in almost 20 years.

Btw,did they ever find the "sources" behind that "vote for Cuomo, not the homo" smear campaign that targeted Ed Koch back in the day?

This is no doubt a setup buy the special interests and lib's that want Cuomo II.

His father was a miserable Governor, an open arms tweeding liberal who shit all over the working white male and a lightweight when it came to crime and respecting the Constitution.
The LIRR massacre was the nail in his coffin.

Because of the Coumo's taxpayers support people Colin Ferguson for life and partly the blame for NYC hospitals going bankrupt today
