WPCNR ALBANY ROUNDS. From news reports. April 16, 2015:

The New York Times reported this morning that State Senate Majority Leader Republican Dean Skelos and his son, Adam Skelos, according to unnamed sources “with knowledge of the matter.”

The Times reporters William K. Rashbaum, Susanne Craig and Thomas Kaplan are bylined in the front page above-the-fold article.

The article says supeonas have been issued to “several state senators on Long Island,” and that Mr. Skelos’ business dealing are drawing attention. One involves the awarding of a Nassau County contract to a storm water treatment firm, when that firm was not the low bidder.

The Times reports Mr. Skelos nor his son have be accused of any wrongdoing.

Preet Bhararra, the U.S. Attorney who indicted Assemblyman Sheldon Silver, is conducting the inquiry.
