Former Liberal Party head Raymond B. Harding, who is a partner at Cozen O'Connor, was arraigned yesterday on charges of pocketing more that $800,000 in "sham" fees for political favors to former state Comptroller Alan G. Hevesi. In addition to marshalling political support for the former comptroller, Mr. Harding is accused by Attorney General Andrew Cuomo of having arranged a vacancy in the 28th Assembly District in Queens - Mr. Hevesi's old Assembly district - to pave the way for the election of his son, Andrew Hevesi, in 2005.
