“He’s setting a great example,” said state Senator Martin Connor of Eliot Spitzer’s self-imposed campaign contributions limits and attendance at fund-raisers.
But the great example, Connor made clear, isn’t for him.
“This doesn’t apply to me. No, we’d have to change the law. None of this applies to legislators,” Connor said.
“Realistically, this executive order doesn’t even apply to the state comptroller or attorney general.”
Connor, who was in a tight primary race this year, did say that he’d happy to adhere to a $10,000 campaign contribution limit, which would be an increase from what state Senators and Assembly members can currently accept.
