'Pitbull' White Settles with Cuomo

Thursday, September 16, 2010 - 04:16 PM

One additional note about Bill White, the former head of the Intrepid Museum who just settled a case with Attorney General Andrew Cuomo for allegedly brokering deals with the state retirement fund without proper licensing.

White had been an ardent supporter of Governor David Paterson when Paterson was still considering running for statewide election against Cuomo.

In emails White sent to Paterson aides - which I obtained under the Freedom of Information Law - White said things like:

I would be the pitbull against cuomo and know exactly where to hit him HARD where david couldn’t. It would SPLIT people away from Cuomo BIGTIME.

In agreeing to pay $1 million to Cuomo's office, White is also agreed to cooperate with the ongoing pension fraud investigation.
