  • Andrew's duty (NY Post) But Working Families -- unlike the Independence Party -- isn't a political party at all; it's a clearinghouse through which elected officials are bought and sold by New York's public-employee unions.
  • Proposal Could Shed Light on Who Helps Candidates (by Courtney Gross, Gotham Gazette) The push follows a Supreme Court ruling that lifted a ban on independent campaign spending by corporations. It also comes as the Manhattan district attorney investigates money funneled from the Independence Party last fall to a poll worker operation run by a campaign advisor to Mayor Michael Bloomberg.
