From the NY Times:
On July 11, just days after the city passed the ban, Mr. Weiner’s campaign took donations totaling $10,000 from five limited liability corporations overseen by the developer Frank Lalezarian, who has also given the legal maximum of $4,950 to the candidate.
Last Wednesday, Mr. Weiner returned the $10,000 in donations from the five entities controlled by Mr. Lalezarian.
Mr. Weiner had also received $9,900 from three limited liability corporations run by Kent M. Swig, a developer who himself gave the campaign $4,950.
Last week, Mr. Weiner returned $9,900 to the three corporations overseen by Mr. Swig.
In addition, Mr. Weiner collected $5,400 in donations from three limited liability corporations tied to Armstrong Realty Management, a major real estate owner in the region whose chief executive, Benjamin O. Ringel, has raised money for the congressman’s mayoral campaign.
From 2006 to 2008, Mr. Weiner raised more than $25,000 from 12 different companies with the same Valley Stream, N.Y., address, all of them overseen by Mr. Ringel, records show.
