According to the New York Daily News, Kaloyeros formerly submitted his resignation Tuesday, although he remains a SUNY employee, as a professor on unpaid leave.
In September, Bharara’s office charged nine people, including two former aides from Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s administration, in a complaint that alleged federal corruption, citing bribery and fraud schemes that centered around funds connected with Gov. Cuomo’s economic development projects throughout the state of New York.
In particular, Kaloyeros, the point-person for many of Cuomo’s economic development projects, including the “Buffalo Billion,” project, as well as Rochester’s AIM Photonics Institute project, is accused of “secretly rigging the bidding process” so that contracts would be awarded to developers LPCiminelli, and COR Development.
Kaloyeros has maintained his innocence, thus far, and SUNY officials have declined to comment on the matter.
