BLOOMBERG GIVES $1.2 MILLION TO NEW YORK PARTY

Ballot Access News - The New York Independence Party received contributions of $1,200,000 from New York city Mayor Mike Bloomberg, according to the party’s recent campaign report. See this story, which contains a link to that page of the party’s report. Bloomberg gave $600,000 on October 30, 2009, and another $600,000 on November 2. Thanks to Nancy Hanks of the Hankster for the link.

The McCain-Feingold law makes it illegal for anyone to give more than $28,000 per year to the national committee of a political party. However, the Independence Party of New York is not a nationally-organized party and therefore it is not a national committee.
