Sen. Grisanti in 2010: "I Don’t Take Money from Downstate Special Interests.”


Bob McCarthy of Buffalo News on what Sen. Grisanti said before wealthy downstate pro-SSM donors bought his vote:

“I don’t take money from downstate special interests.”— Mark Grisanti, as quoted by the Niagara Gazette on Oct. 28, 2010.

The Buffalo News reported on Jan. 19 that none of the nearly $247,000 Grisanti reported to the state Board of Elections last month stemmed from his district. Much of the latest sum was contributed at a fall event in Manhattan hosted by Mayor Michael Bloomberg and gay rights supporters.
