ANALYSIS: 127 DONORS EACH GAVE $50,000 OR MORE TO STATE COMMITTEES OVER PAST YEAR

For immediate release: Friday February 3, 2012 For more information: Bill Mahoney, (518) 817-3738

127 donors gave state-level candidates and political parties $50,000 or more over the past year.1 Together they gave $16,837,067.93, more than a third of all the money raised by these committees. Many of these donors took advantage of the various loopholes in New York’s campaign finance law: individuals gave more than the $150,000 annual limit by donating to political parties’ housekeeping accounts, and businesses used corporate subsidiaries and multiple LLCs to greatly surpass their corporate $5,000 annual aggregate limit. Of the donors who gave $50,000 or more, Governor Cuomo received the most money: $2,959,426.04 from 79 of these 127. Attorney General Schneiderman came in 11th with $334,500 from these sources, and was followed by Senators McDonald (13th), Saland (14th), Alesi (15th), Skelos (16th), Grisanti (18th), and Libous (20th). Comptroller DiNapoli came in 19th; the remaining eleven largest recipients on the top twenty list were party committees. The following chart lists each of the 127, the total amount they gave, who the largest recipient(s) were, and brief donor profile information. For donors that lobby, the dollar amount and ranking provided for the their lobby expenditures represent the first ten months of 2011, the most recent time frame for which complete information is available. In many cases, it was clear that differently-named corporations were actually subsidiaries of one business. For example, if multiple LLCs were found based out of one address, their ownership was checked in the Department of State’s database of corporations and often linked to a single source. However, it is possible that some donors who used companies with dissimilar names that wrote checks from different addresses have not yet been identified as being connected. Until campaign finance disclosure requirements are reformed to illuminate these relationships, there will likely be a few donors for whom the full extent of their contributions is not accurately identified.
