The New York Times reports that the letter from U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara to the lawyer for the commission says, in part: “We have reason to believe a number of commissioners recently have been contacted about the commission’s work, and some commissioners have been asked to issue public statements characterizing events and facts regarding the commission’s operation.”

In 2013 Cuomo, a Democrat, created the state panel to investigate public corruption, called the Moreland Commission. But the governor is accused of interfering with investigations and compromising the commission’s work.

The letter goes on to say: “To the extent anyone…

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — People can now examine the 17 proposals to build casinos around upstate New York with a click of a mouse.
