Another 501(c)(4), But This Time In NY and Supporting a Democrat

ImagesThe NY Times reports that the section 501(c)(4) Committee to Save New York, organized at the urging of Governor Andrew Cuomo to promote his policies and praise his performance, received $17 million last year.  Only now it has come to light that among the Committee's financial supporters is the New York Gaming Association, a trade group that supports expanding legalized gambling, that contributed $2 million.  That information was apparently not known before because the Committee, like all section 501(c)(4) organizations generally, is not required to publicly disclose its donors.  The NY Times is urging Gov. Cuomo to push the Committee to reveal all of its donors, especially giving the Governor's recent support for pro-gambling measures.
