The push for fair election funding
From the NY Post:
Rich liberal actors are demanding that Albany use state money to help pay for political campaigns.
In interviews released yesterday by the Fair Elections for New York Campaign, Alec Baldwin, Kathleen Turner, Jason Alexander of “Seinfeld” and Kathryn Erbe of “Law and Order: Criminal Intent” urged lawmakers to pass campaign-finance reform before adjourning for the summer.
“I’m Alec Baldwin with a message for politicians in New York,” said Baldwin, who has toyed with the idea of running for mayor. “It’s time to stop talking about cleaning up Albany, and start doing it.”
Turner in her video says, “I can’t believe the stories I hear coming out of Albany today. State legislators patting each other down for wires . . . Isn’t that embarrassing?”
Actually, that wasn't state legislators. That was Vince Tabone who patted down an FBI informant, who actually was wearing a wire. And yes, that was very embarrassing. Mostly for Tabone.
