Cuomo mum on funding Vito Lopez's non-profit

Askedwhether it's a "good idea" to fund the Ridgewood Buschwick Senior Citizens Council - the nonprofit founded by influential Democratic lawmaker Vito Lopez - Andrew Cuomo today would only say that the matter is "under investigation" and that he won't comment.

But as David Seifman points out, the city is moving ahead and sending the group $12.5 million in city money. Along with the AG's office, the federal authorities are also investigating the group.
