NYU Report on Pay to Play in NYC

Yesterday we blogged about a new report on "pay-to-play" culture in NYC that found "contractors and lobbyists who do business with New York City government accounted for about 22.3 percent of campaign donations in the 2005 election cycle."

Here's a link to the report, which was prepared by students from the (NYU) Wagner School of Public Service’s Capstone Program. It represents a data analysis and comparison of information provided by the City’s new on-line VENDEX and lobbyist databases, with the information maintained in the CFB’s searchable Campaign Finance database.

We congratulate our colleauges at the Wagner School for a job well done.
