Report On de Blasio Election Spending Is Full Of Details And Holes

Jim Dwyer takes a holistic view of the inquiry into Mayor deBlasio’s fund raising operation in the New York Times:

“if it seems strange that Mr. de Blasio is now on the griddle when so many others could just as easily have provided fixings for the same meal, it’s important to remember that the corrupting force of campaign money was part of the work of the Moreland Commission in 2013 and 2014.

The city, unlike the state, has a reasonably strong and effective public financing law. Elsewhere, money in politics finds its own level. It is not a heartening sight, said Bill Cunningham, a former executive director of the state Democratic committee.

“That level,” he said, “is somewhere between a bog and a swamp.”
