Common Cause/NY calls on Spitzer to Accept Campaign Finance System Limits
Susan Lerner, Executive Director of Common Cause/NY, released the following statement:
"Elliot Spitzer's Jekyll-and-Hyde transformation from champion of campaign finance reform and public funding of elections to disparager of New York City's well-regarded campaign finance system is the most recent disappointing experience with Mr. Spitzer. Mr. Spitzer can make a strong statement to New York City's voters about his principles and consistency by agreeing to abide by the campaign finance system's limits in his campaign for City Comptroller."
