WASHINGTON — A top political adviser to former New York Comptroller Alan Hevesi and the state’s former deputy comptroller yesterday were indicted on 123 counts and separately charged with securities fraud for steering state pension fund investment business to certain private equity firms and hedge funds in return for millions of dollars of kickbacks.

Henry “Hank “ Morris, 55, a top political adviser and chief fundraiser for Hevesi, and David Loglisci, 38, former deputy comptroller and chief investment officer for the retirement fund, were slapped with the 123 count criminal indictment by Attorney General Andrew Cuomo in state court for kickbacks they allegedly received from November 2002 through July 2008.
