Cuomo Raising Money to Promote Agenda

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) "has quietly been seeking to raise $5 million to finance an array of television ads promoting his agenda -- and he is doing it apart from a secret lobbying outfit that sparked controversy in the past," the New York Daily News reports.

"Donors are being asked to contribute to the Cuomo-controlled state Democratic Party, which technically is responsible for running the ads... The fund-raising arrangement is a departure from his first two years as governor, when much of the coin used to push his initiatives came from the Committee to Save New York, a private lobbying group that was not subject to state campaign finance law."
