WFP Fat Cats

Written By: William F. B. O'Reilly - Jan• 20•11

At risk of being repetitive:

A new report from the New York Public Interest Research Group (NYPIRG) identifies New York’s Working Families Party (WFP) as the biggest political spenders in New York State.

You’d never know if from the union-controlled Party’s website.

Here is the WFP in promoting taxpayer-funded elections:

“Public financing of elections can kick the big-money crowd out of politics, and finally level the playing field between working families and powerful corporate interests.”

Who are those powerful interests again?

The excellent NYPIRG report is available for download below.

NOTE: Faulty counting at the Board of Elections. Seems the WFP comes in third in spending for January.  The point remains the same.
