You might wonder why former Governor Andrew Cuomo has new TV ads. Common Cause wondered, and says Cuomo is misusing his campaign funds to try to rebuild his image and smear his victims. The group says it filed a complaint with the state elections board over the issue.
Susan Lerner, executive director of Common Cause/NY, released the following statement to X101 News: “Former Governor Cuomo is misusing campaign funds for personal purposes, buying television ads to rebuild his image and smear his victims. His donors gave him money to run for public office, not to use as a personal slush fund to salve his ego.”
“Common Cause/NY filed a complaint with the NYSBOE enforcement counsel several months ago, and we’re hopeful the investigation will confirm what we know: this is a blatant misuse of campaign funds.”
