DiNapoli Cleared

Thursday, October 07, 2010 - 01:55 PM

Good news for Democrats who were hoping to see their current state comptroller cleared from the cloud of investigation, this statement from the state attorney general's office:

We have received numerous inquiries from the media asking about the status of current New York State Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli. During the investigation, the Office reviewed an investment known as Intermedia, which was approved for investment under then-New York State Comptroller Alan Hevesi and increased under Comptroller DiNapoli.The Office has concluded our review of that investment and determined that no action is warranted. Mr. DiNapoli is not involved in any investigation or matter in this Office.

During this week's comptroller debate, Republican challenger Harry Wilson repeatedly referred to Cuomo's investigation which, at the time, had not cleared DiNapoli of possible wrong-doing.
