Campaign finance is fun. Let’s look at the accounting for the Republican candidate for comptroller. Specifically, about $2,000 in donations. The following amounts are disclosed as contributions to “Taxpayers for Stefan”:
|FRIENDS OF ELISE CUSACK||8/31/2012||$385.11|
|FRIENDS OF ELISE CUSACK||8/31/2012||$337.58|
|Friends of Dr. Barry Weinstein||9/25/2012||$100.00|
|MIKE RANZENHOFER FOR STATE SENATE||10/2/2012||$250.00|
|HUMISTON FOR ASSEMBLY||10/3/2012||$350.00|
|COMMITTEE TO REELECT JUDGE HOWE SURROGATE||10/16/2012||$250.00|
|Friends of Dr. Barry Weinstein||10/17/2012||$150.00|
|FRIENDS OF RON PILOZZI||9/4/2013||$150.00|
Oddly enough, not a single one of these donations turns up in the “other monetary” disclosure section of Mychajliw’s campaign account.
In July 2013, we have a $250.00 contribution from M&T PAC.
In late August and early September, there is $300 from the Clarence and Boston committees, and $150 from National Fuel Gas PAC.
Mid-October brings a contribution of $500 from Guy Marlette’s treasury, and $1000 from the ECGOP.
I have omitted some unreported donations (Kevin Hardwick, Tom Wik) because they were under the $100 threshold for reporting itemized donations. However, the amounts shown above are disclosed by their donors, but not disclosed by the recipient, as required by law.
