The Daily News blog reports that although he is not actually running for office, former Governor George Pataki has spent over $1 million through his four PACs in 2007. A large chunk of this money has gone to things like "consulting," "travel," and "staffing." But as NYPIRG's Russ Haven points out, the PACs are also being used as conduits to funnel money to other politicians. "[I]t appears all he's really doing is supporting his extended family. It looks like the full-employment program for the Pataki faithful."
There oughta be a law against it.
