The Payoff: Cuomo Set to Reap Huge Financial Rewards for Passing SSM


Ben Smith at Politico:

With same-sex marriage legal in the state in New York, Gov. Andrew Cuomo is reaping the political rewards: A source emails over an invitation to a $12,500 per person "intimate evening" fundraiser on Sept. 21 with Cuomo.

It will be hosted by medical-supply heir Jon Stryker, who is probably the biggest donor to gay causes in the country; and Jonathan Lewis, son of Democratic megadonor Peter Lewis.

"Having delivered on marriage equality in New York is going to get Andrew a lot of gay love, not to mention gay money. There is no one more passionate, and effective," my source emails.
