U.S. Senate candidate Wendy Long and her husband reported $1.2 million in income, tax records her campaign released today showed.
Her husband, Arthur S. Long, is a partner at the Manhattan law firm Davis Polk. The income came from his partnership in the firm, the records show. They paid 37 percent in state and federal taxes, nearly $500,ooo in total.
They donated $30,159 to charity, including $27,209 in cash contributions. While the itemized list of contributions wasn’t immediately provided today, her non-cash contributions included a bassinet, a Moses basket and baby items to the pro-life group, Pregnancy Resource Center of the Monadnock Region in New Hampshire.
They also donated opera tickets, as well as a leather day bed to Housing Works in Brooklyn.
Wendy Long is a long-shot challenger to Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, a Democrat, in November, polls have shown.
Gillibrand has released her taxes for every year she’s been in office. In 2005, the year before Gillibrand took office as a congresswoman she earned $509,269 as a Manhattan attorney; since then, she and her husband have reported annual incomes under $200,000.
Long’s campaign has tried to hit Gillibrand for not releasing more of her taxes prior to taking office — even though Gillibrand has been hailed for being one of only five senators to put their tax returns online. Here they are.
