Wealthy New York Donors Call Out Speaker Heastie on Fundraiser for Wealthy New York Donors
“This is a slap in the face to the people of New York, and yet another sign of how broken our state's politics are across the board”
New York, New York - Today, the Patriotic Millionaires will join Rise and Resist for a protest outside of a major fundraiser by Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie for high-end donors. The protest will challenge Heastie for backing down on campaign finance reform when given the chance to actually include it in the New York state budget, and then following that up by meeting with wealthy donors just weeks later. This follows a digital ad from the Patriotic Millionaires challenging Governor Cuomo for holding a secret fundraiser for wealthy donors just a week before killing an expansion of the millionaires tax in the state budget.
