Democratic state Senator Liz Krueger aired some of her frustrations about fund-raising and Eliot Spitzer at a panel discussion in Manhattan yesterday, hosted by the Drum Major Institute. Her comments, according to DMI:
I hate fundraising. I hate spending a huge percentage of my time begging strangers for money.”
Progress on campaign finance reform, and other major legislative initiatives of Spitzer’s, have been delayed since the investigations into the Troopergate incident picked up in July.
What’s unusual about Krueger’s remarks here, excerpted and posted on DMI’s blog, is that she appears to blame Spitzer, and not Republicans in the state Senate, for the delay.
UPDATE: DMI revised their excerpts of Krueger’s remarks, and puts them
in context of her complaints about Joe Bruno.
