BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — An investigation into one of the most powerful Democratic operatives in western New York, Steve Pigeon, is expanding, according to sources.

Sources tell News 4 there’s now a New York State Attorney General Grand Jury investigation into Pigeon, looking into whether a New York Supreme Court Justice asked for pigeon’s help in securing a job for a relative.

Police raided the home of Pigeon and two others last year over alleged campaign finance violations.
