Cuomo Met With Feds on Ex-aide’s Corruption Case

ALBANY (AP) -

Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Thursday that he has met with federal authorities following the September announcement of criminal charges against longtime adviser Joe Percoco.

Others charged in the corruption case include a former State University of New York Polytechnic Institute president. Cuomo says the meeting was voluntary, he was not under oath and he doesn’t know if he’ll be called as a witness during Percoco’s trial.

Percoco and the others have pleaded not guilty. The case alleges bid-rigging and bribery related to state economic development projects.
