Cuomo Rejects Idea That State Campaign Public Finance System Would Stop Big Donations

In the NY Daily News, Ken Lovett  reported that “Gov. Cuomo on Monday shot down the idea that a state campaign public finance system would take big money out of politics.

Cuomo said the controversial 2010 Citizens United decision by the U.S. Supreme Court that prohibits the restriction of independent political spending makes a “mockery” of public campaign finance systems like in New York City that seek to reduce the flow of big donations.”
