Newsday found a discrepancy that may be something the feds are looking at:
Skelos' signed ethics filing reports he is an attorney in general practice from an office in his home and, in a separate line, for Ruskin Moscou Faltischek in Uniondale. But when told about the two entries Friday, Skelos' spokesman Scott Reif said the reference to a private law practice operating from the senator's home was an error made by a staffer. Reif said Skelos doesn't practice independently.
The reference to Skelos operating a private law practice from his home is an error made by a staffer on the ethics filing?
Then why did Skelos sign it?
Why did the staffer think Skelos might be operating a private law firm out of his home?
And is the US Attorney's office making anything of all of this?
The Post reports "US Attorney Preet Bharara is looking at the powerful Nassau County pol’s connections to various real estate deals."
I dunno, maybe the discrepancy in the ethics filing is nothing, but it's the kind of thing that makes you go "Hmm..."
I bet it made somebody in the US Attorney's office go "Hmm..." too.
