In a scathing editorial, the Poughkeepsie Journal takes New York State to task for its failed campaign finance laws. Citing the recently release Brennan Center campaign finance report, the paper notes:
New York's campaign finance laws are a mess and ineffective. And state leaders would rather blame each other for the stalemate over reforms rather than work together on remedies.
New York's campaign finance laws are a fiasco: a fig leaf that does little to hide the fact that the State has one of the worst campaign regulatory systems in the nation.
