INSIDE THE PAPERS
The New York Times
Danny Hakim reports: “Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo has called for an investigation into a confidential settlement of sexual harassment claims against a state legislator, but during his tenure as attorney general, his office authorized the settlement of a racial discrimination case that included a confidentiality clause.”
Thomas Kaplan writes: “Indian tribes, racetrack casinos and other gambling interests have spent nearly $50 million on lobbying and campaign contributions in the state since 2005, according to a new analysis by a government-reform group, Common Cause New York.”
New York Post
Sally Goldenberg notes: “After firing a money-management firm for poorly handling the city’s pension funds in 2010, Comptroller John Liu agreed on a separate contract with the same company while bypassing the standard competitive-bidding process, The Post has learned.”
New York Daily News
Glenn Blain writes: “Gov. Cuomo is warning state officials of the necessity of keeping the lid on new spending for at least the next two years.”
