Anti-de Blasio group ‘seeking clarification’ from NYC Campaign Finance Board to probe non-profit spending

The new anti-Mayor de Blasio group is asking the city’s Campaign Finance Board to probe whether he is eligible for public campaign funds because of his controversial political non-profit.

NYC Deserves Better — the brainchild of former top Bloomberg aide Bradley Tusk — wrote a letter to the board “seeking clarification” on whether de Blasio’s non-profit spending should count towards his 2017 re-election campaign.

That non-profit operated outside the CFB, and accepted donations from individuals larger than the $4,950 allowed under the law for election campaigns.

In his letter to the CFB, Tusk asks the board to consider whether the non-profit, which was called the Campaign for One New York, should count as campaign funds, since it was established “to promote his agenda” outside of government.
