Cuomo Clears DiNapoli

We reported on Tuesday that whether or not Tom DiNapoli is actually under investigation  by the attorney general’s office has become a major talking point of the comptroller campaign, with Harry Wilson saying that he is and DiNapoli saying that the office is under investigation for events that pre-dated him.

Now Andrew Cuomo appears to have come down on the side of DiNapoli. His office just released a statement that says, “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.”

We have reached out to the Wilson campaign for a reaction, and will update when we receive one.
