Is Skelos next?

From NBC:

Federal investigators are looking into state Senate Majority Leader Dean Skelos' sources of income, according to people familiar with the investigation.

U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara is taking a hard look at Skelos’ ties to the real estate industry, among other areas of inquiry, the sources told NBC 4 New York.

Skelos, the highest ranking Republican in state government, has not been charged with any wrongdoing.

Skelos is a lawyer and works as counsel at Ruskin, Moscou & Faltischek in Uniondale. A spokeswoman and a partner at the firm, as well as an outside spokeswoman for the firm, did not answer questions as to whether the firm has received subpoenas for information about Skelos’s legal work and income.

The firm is not a target in the probe, a source said.

Former electeds should be worried as well.

As soon as they nabbed that longtime crook Silver , I said that Skelos would be next for a good scoping. Albany needs a good enema with term limits for all to follow.

No matter what you say, he is still a hottie in my book. Yeah he is probably guilty as hell but I'm a sucker for that bad boy aura.
