ALBANY - The former head of the state Liberal party pleaded guilty Tuesday to taking $800,000 in pay-to-play fees in the state pension fund scandal.

Ray Harding, who quietly registered as a financial broker several years ago, admitted in Manhattan Supreme Court he got the money as a "reward" for his support of former state Controller Alan Hevesi.

Harding said Hank Morris, Hevesi's political guru, made him a middleman on some deals so he could reap the fees.
