From the Morning Memo:

Senate Majority Leader Dean Skelos is the latest state lawmaker to reportedly come under scrutiny for his outside income.

The news that Skelos is being investigated by the U.S. attorney’s office adds another wrinkle and more than just a drop of uncertainty to a Capitol jolted by the arrest of embattled Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver.

The Long Island Republican last week did not weigh in on whether Silver should step down as speaker following his arrest on corruption charges.

“I think that the Assembly has to make that decision,” Skelos said. “He’s their leader, they’ll have to make that decision themselves.”

Skelos earned as much as $250,000 from his work as a counsel at Ruskin Moscou Faltischek, according to his financial disclosure form filed with ethics and lobbying regulators.

Skelos isn’t the only current or former lawmaker under the magnifying glass of U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara.

But Skelos, as a legislative leader, negotiates the state budget and top-level issues legislation with the Assembly and governor.

The news that Skelos is under scrutiny could provide yet another shockwave through the halls of the Capitol that pretty much no one is safe from Bharara.
