Donors To Group Supporting Cuomo May Remain Secret

Andrew Cuomo WWNY


Most of the donors who wrote six- and seven-figure checks to a lobbying group formed to support Gov. Andrew Cuomo through a massive TV ad campaign will likely never be identified.
The Joint Commission on Public Ethics (JCOPE), which is headed by Cuomo's appointed chairwoman, is still deciding how far back the donors should be identified for certain lobbying groups, including the Committee to Save New York.
JCOPE staff say donors who gave before either Jan. 1 or June 1, 2012, might not have to be revealed, which would shield the source of about $17 million in donations to the committee.
The group has refused to identify donors and is at the center of a controversy over receiving $2 million from gambling interests as Cuomo pushes for more casinos.
