Today’s Daily News editorial page urges action on the Governor’s proposal to close the LLC campaign finance loophole as “the governor’s eight bills give them ability to pick and choose targets.
A comprehensive bill covers all state campaigns; seven others discretely cover just about all possible iterations of campaigns for New York public office: the Legislature, Senate, Assembly, the attorney general, the controller — all with the governor included in the provisions.
At the least, Flanagan and Heastie should give Cuomo his wish, shut the loophole for gubernatorial races, and bolster confidence that governors are untainted by limitless cash. Dare they. And dare they face the truth that they’ve got nothing on the world’s oldest profession.”
