NEW YORK, April 30 (Reuters) - New York’s criminal probe of kickbacks paid to invest its state pension fund money has exposed a national network of actors whose schemes continue today, state Attorney General Andrew Cuomo said on Thursday.
Cuomo and the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, which are jointly probing the pay-to-play scandal in New York state, charged Dallas-based Aldus Equity Partners and one of its founding principals, Saul Meyer, for their participation.
“This is all across the nation, and it’s continuing today,” the Democrat told reporters on a telephone conference call. He added he was “formalizing” his probe with other states. (Reporting by Joan Gralla; Editing by James Dalgleish)
