Former congressman, the Reverend Floyd Flake, along with rap moguls Jay Z and Russell Simmons reportedly will be subpoenaed today, as part of the investigation into the controversial contract to operate a casino at Aqueduct Racetrack.
Flake is an investor in a group that won a contract earlier this year to bring more than 4,000 video slot machines to the financially-troubled racetrack.
Critics, including losing bidders for the project, said Flake’s group won because of his political connections to Governor David Paterson.
The New York Post says Flake, Jay Z, and Simmons are the first of dozens expected to be questioned about the deal.
The paper says the subpoenas were issued by the State Inspector General's Office, which is working with the United States Attorney.
Serves you right for backing the turd last year.
