Pataki To Decide On Hevesi "Removal" By Friday

Governor Pataki may be in Hungary, but his office says the governor will decide by Friday whether to "move forward with the removal process" in the case of state comptroller Alan Hevesi.

Hevesi could be removed from office for using a state employee to chauffeur his ailing wife on the tax payers' dime.

If the governor gives the O-K, the state Senate would hear the case for removal.


Democratic candidate for state attorney general Andrew Cuomo said today that Hevesi has "seriously compromised his ability to do his job," according to a post on Politics on the Hudson.

POH is the political blog of the Journal News. Cuomo made the comments while meeting with the paper's editorial board.

Cuomo stopped short of withdrawing his endorsement of Hevesi, POH says.
