CAMPAIGN FINANCE “TALE OF THE TAPE” FOR 2014 GOVERNOR’S RACE, JULY 2014 FILINGS

According to an analysis of the July 15, 2014 campaign finance filings reported to the New York State
Board of Elections, NYPIRG has found that:
1


 Governor Cuomo raised more from his nine largest donors - $2,788,142 – than County Executive
Astorino raised from his more than 2,174 donors combined.
2

 Governor Cuomo received aggregate donation totals of $40,000 or more from 317 donors.
County Executive Astorino received $40,000 or more from nine donors.
 81.37% of the money raised by Governor Cuomo this election cycle came from donors who
contributed aggregate amounts of $10,000 or more. 44.92% of the money raised by County
Executive Astorino falls in this category.
 0.77% of the money raised by Governor Cuomo has come from donors giving aggregate
amounts of less than $1,000. 16.48% of the money raised by County Executive Astorino falls
into this category.
3


When transfers from committees controlled by the candidates and from parties are removed, Governor
Cuomo has raised $42,703,213.32 from 5,035 donors this election cycle; County Executive Astorino has
raised $2,638,849.10 from more than 2,174 donors.







1
The totals in this analysis reflect contributions and contribution refunds made between December 1, 2010 and
July 14, 2014. This study excludes contribution refunds that resulted in more money being refunded to the
committee than given by the donor this election cycle, as these were presumably residuals of the previous 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
Astorino reported $65,115.30 in unitemized donations, so an exact total number of donors is impossible to
determine. Cuomo itemized all of his donations. Election Law permits unitemized donations of under $100.
3
Since donations need to be itemized if they are $100 or more, we assume the unitemized money reported by
Astorino was from donors who gave $1,000 or less.

Nine Donors have contributed $40,000 or more to County Executive Astorino
It must be considered that Astorino is disadvantaged by having a lower contribution limit than Cuomo -
$41,100, as opposed to $60,800. However, it does not appear that many donors are interested in giving
at this level: three donors met the limit exactly; two gave $40,000; none gave between $30,000 and
$40,000.

Donations from clearly-linked corporate and union entities have been combined for this analysis.

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.

317 donors have contributed $40,000 or more to Governor Cuomo
At least 58 donors have exploited various loopholes to give Governor Cuomo more than the purported
$60,800 contribution limit. Cuomo is certainly helped by the three-year head start he has had over his
opponent, but it is clear this is not the only factor. At least five donors (Litwin, Brookfield, Related,
LeFrak, and Cablevision) gave Cuomo between $85,000 and $200,000 in the past six months alone.
