Attorney General Andrew Cuomo says he’s expanding an ongoing pension fraud probe to include all local governments across the state and all types of professional consultants.
The investigation started with findings that some Long Island school districts were listing outside lawyers as employees, allowing them to qualify for public pensions while their private practices collected millions of dollars in legal fees.
Now Cuomo is seeking information from more than 4,000 of the state’s county governments, villages, towns, and special districts about their employment arrangements.
