Advance Group Fined $26k By Schneiderman, Campaign Finance Board

Chris Bragg reports in the Times Union “Attorney General Eric Schneiderman and the New York City Campaign Finance Board announced $25,800 in total penalties on Thursday morning stemming from a joint investigation into the activities of the consulting firm the Advance Group during the 2013 New York City elections.

Under New York City campaign finance rules, candidates who enrolled in the city’s taxpayer matching funds program during the 2013 elections were subject to a hard spending cap. But the joint investigation found that the firm, led by founder Scott Levenson, had been the main consultant both for city candidates, and for deep-pocketed outside groups spending on behalf of those same candidates.”
