Post-Scandal Money

Voters don’t care much about Alan Hevesi’s chauffeur scandal, but what about the donors?

According to Hevesi’s 32-day pre-general election filing, he’s raised more than $70,000 in contributions from individuals and corporations since the story broke on Sept. 22. His bow-tied opponent, Christopher Callaghan, got more than half of his $35,163 in contributions during that same period.

Hevesi’s post-scandal money came from 14 contributors. Callaghan’s came from 27.

And to put it all in perspective, Hevesi has $5,872,586.53 left on hand. Callaghan…$43,147.21.
