NEWS RELEASE

For immediate release: 7 PAGES Thursday, January 16, 2014 For more information: Bill Mahoney, (518) 817-3738 NYPIRG ANALYSIS OF GOVERNOR CUOMO’S FUNDRAISING ELECTION CYCLE 2010-2014 Cuomo Donors by Aggregate Contribution Total (Albany, N.Y.) According to an analysis of state campaign finance filings, the New York Public Interest Research Group (NYPIRG) has found that:    80.97% of the money raised by Governor Cuomo’s campaign committee this election cycle has come from donors who have given aggregate totals of $10,000 or more. This represents a slight increase from July, at which point 80.18% of his committee’s contributions had come from donors at this level. Similarly, the percentage of coming from donors to the governor giving less than $1,000 has decreased from 0.89% to 0.85%. Only 0.69% of his campaign committee’s contributions have come from individuals – not corporate entities – who have given aggregate totals of less than $1,000. 1 Total $ % of All $ Total Donors $15,530,789.17 45.06% 242 $12,373,039.76 35.90% 682 $4,194,642.46 12.17% 835 $2,071,928.00 6.01% 1386 $293,218.08 0.85% 1128

Donor Level $40,000 or more $10,000 or more; less than $40,000 $2,6000 or more; less than $10,000 $1,000 or more; less than $2,600 Less than $1,000

242 donors have contributed $40,000 or more to Governor Cuomo Donations from clearly-linked corporate and union entities have been combined for this analysis. At least 41 donors have exploited various loopholes to give Governor Cuomo more than the purported $60,800 contribution limit. Donor Holdings of Leonard Litwin2 THE RICHMAN GROUP INC.

Total Donations $800,000.00 $264,000.00 $200,000.00

The totals in this analysis reflect contributions and contribution refunds made between December 1, 2010 and January 14, 2014. This study excludes contribution refunds made to 16 entities totaling $41,160.23, presumably residuals of the 2010 election cycle, which resulted in more money being refunded to them than they gave this election cycle. It is possible that the identification of more vaguely-titled LLCs will lead to an increase in the total money from large donors. 2 When donors appear entirely in upper-case letters, they match a spelling that appears somewhere in the campaign finance database, though subsidiaries with different names might be aggregated in the amount. Donors whose names appear with regular typography are names that do not appear in the campaign finance database, and was created by NYPIRG to clarify the identity of vaguely-titled contributions.
