Report: NY's Affordable Housing Agency Subpoenaed By Bharara's Office

New York’s affordable housing agency is now reportedly under the microscope. The Homes and Community Renewal agency is among the state agencies that have been subpoenaed by U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara of the Southern District. 

The Times Union reports the subpoenas are all related to the ongoing investigation into the Cuomo administration and several upstate development deals. The Albany newspaper had requested copies of time sheets of former HCR employee Steven L. Aiello between August 2012 and May 2014. Aiello is the son of a major Syracuse-area developer, Steven F. Aiello, whose company COR Development is of interest in the probe.

In a letter to the Albany newspaper, HCR attorney Alejandro Valella says an appeal regarding a Freedom of Information Law request was rejected due to the subpoenas issued by Bharara’s office seeking information that overlapped with the FOIL request.
