Alan Hevesi’s last campaign finance statement finally went online last night.

Much of the remaining funds went to “surveys,” wages for his skeletal campaign crew and work done by the law firm of Stroock & Stroock & Lavan LLP.

Yet, as the News reported today, he ended the reporting period with $118,928 left over.

As it turns out, Hevesi was able to show the surplus because he transferred $165,392 into his current campaign account – Hevesi for New York – from his previous campaign account, Hevesi 2002.

A list of his final bunch of contributors is here.
