Senator Testifies on Campaign Reform

State Sen. Joseph Addabbo recently testified before a panel representing Attorney General Eric Schneiderman regarding proposed regulations to crack down on questionable political activities by certain non-profit social welfare organizations. Addabbo stated that these groups “have come under growing scrutiny in recent election cycles for mailings, television advertising and other activities they have funded that tend to disparage certain candidates for public office.” He noted that “their origins are often difficult to trace, their contributors are not a matter of public record, and it is unclear whether contributors to these groups are aware of how their donations may be used.”
