Here’s a public service announcement released last month to promote ReliefNY.org — the state’s fundraising effort for Superstorm Sandy victims.
It has a star-studded lineup: Al Pacino, Robert De Niro, Michael J. Fox, Steve Buscemi, Edie Falco, Amare Stoudemire and Sandra Lee — Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s girlfriend. (h/t to Capitol Tonight)
The Wall Street Journal reported today that the Empire State Relief Fund, announced Nov. 9 in the wake of the Oct. 29 storm, has raised $17 million. But Cuomo is using a state agency to oversee the money, and he has a board of his political fundraisers overseeing it, the article said.
