Federal grand jury probes NY Senate's Skelos, son: New York Times

A federal grand jury is considering evidence in a possible case against New York Senate Majority Leader Dean Skelos and his son, the New York Times reported on Wednesday. The secret proceeding focuses on the business dealings of Adam Skelos, 32, including his hiring by an Arizona company that won a local government contract in New York although it was not the low bidder, and a $20,000 signing bonus from a title insurance company that never employed him, the Times said, citing unnamed sources. Investigators are trying to determine whether the elder Skelos, 67, used his political influence to help the Arizona company, AbTech Industries, which won a $12 million storm-water treatment contract from Nassau County on Long Island, the Republican senator’s home district.
