The New York Times: Under Scrutiny, Official at State University Resigns

A top official at the State University of New York accused of giving a no-show job to the daughter of the former Senate majority leader, Joseph L. Bruno, has resigned amid mounting scrutiny of his conduct.

The university’s board of trustees voted unanimously at a meeting on Friday to accept the resignation of the official, John J. O’Connor, the secretary and a senior vice chancellor of the university system and the president of its research foundation.
