ALAN HEVESI IT IS TIME TO TELL ALL


Disgraced ex-Controller Alan Hevesi says ex-pal Hank Morris is his top enemy

Saturday, April 30th 2011, 4:00 AM

ALBANY - Disgraced ex-Controller Alan Hevesi officially declared to prison officials that his former political guru Hank Morris is a sworn enemy, sources tell the Daily News.
Hevesi made the disclosure to prison bosses during a standard intake interview when asked if he has any enemies behind bars that would impact which state pen he was sent to, sources said.
Hevesi is serving up to four years at Mid-State Correctional Facility in Oneida County for his role in a massive pension fund pay-to-play scandal launched by Morris.
He cited his former political Svengali and three other people as enemies, the sources said. The identity of the others fingered as foes is unknown.
Morris is doing up to four years at a prison just 10 miles away from Hevesi.
Both are in protective custody, away from the general prison population.

If Alan Hevesi wants to do something to make amends for the "PENSONGATE" scandal then he needs to TELL ALL.


As I have said before there are many unanswered questions.
