Disgraced former political consultant Hank Morris and Dan Hevesi, an ex-state senator and son of jailed former state Comptroller Alan Hevesi, are named in pay-to-play pension fund lawsuits brought by a New Mexico government agency, the AP reports.

The suits, filed in state and federal courts by State Investment Council, claims the agency’s onetime top manager, Gary Bland, and the Dallas-based financial advisory firm Aldus Equity Partners improperly steered investments to political supporters of former New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson.

Dan Hevesi was one of several placement agents on a New Mexico investment deal.

Aldus Equity’s founding partner, Saul Meyer pleaded guilty in October 2009 to fraud for his role in the New York pension fund scandal.

At the time, then-AG Andrew Cuomo branded Meyer “a corrupted gatekeeper.” Meyer pleaded guilty to charges that he paid over $300,000 in bogus finders fees to Morris in exchange for $375 million worth of investments in Aldus private equity funds between 2004 and 2006.

In 2007, investigators subpoenaed records from a financial business owned by Dan Hevesi, who is Alan Hevesi’s eldest son, but no charges were ever brought against him.

Last fall, the Times reported Alan Hevesi had agreed to plead guilty to a felony charge for his role in the pension fund mess in order to protect Dan Hevesi and also his younger son, Assemblyman Andy Hevesi.

Alan Hevesi pleaded guilty last October and was sentenced in April to one to four years in prison – the maximum penalty possible.

Morris was sentenced in February to up to four years behind bars.
