All in the family...
From the NY Post:
State Senate Democrats steered more than $1.5 million in campaign money this year to the Parkside Group, the political consulting firm of Evan Stavisky — son of state Sen. Toby Ann Stavisky (D-Queens).
Both Staviskys defended the arrangement, insisting that the senator plays no role in the Democrats’ central fund-raising committee and that the son’s firm worked hard for the money.
“We produced more than 3 million pieces of campaign literature, multiple TV ads and other essential campaign materials that propelled Democratic candidates to important victories in tough races throughout the state,” said Parkside spokesman Pat McKenna.
Records show that Parkside also conducted polling for the Democratic Senate Campaign Committee. The firm scored a 2010 contract guaranteeing itself 80 percent of all DSCC business.
