Heaney analysis of Buffalo Billion probe

Jim Heaney of Investigative Post, whose reporting foreshadowed the ongoing federal probe of developer contracts awarded under the Buffalo Billion program, took to the airwaves over the weekend of offer his take on U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara’s investigation.

Heaney told Maryalice Demler of WGRZ Friday evening that the probe will almost certainly focus on Alain Kaloyeros, the Albany nanotech guru who is quarterbacking the Buffalo Billion program.

Sunday, in an interview with Dave Debo of WBEN News Radio, 930 AM, Heaney covered a range of related issues, including the investigation, the state’s pay to play culture and the significance of Bharara’s interest in allegations that LPCiminelli may have overcharged the Buffalo school system hundreds of millions of dollars to manage the reconstruction of scores of school buildings.

Fred Dicker of The New York Post is scheduled to interview Heaney at 10:30 a.m. Monday on his radio program. That interview will post on this website Monday afternoon.
