There’s a new report out that alleges corrupt misdeeds in Albany, including hidden campaign expenditures and bundles of contributions made to non-profits connected to lawmakers. Among the many findings, one stood out to us: A non-profit, housed in a New York City storefront, has received $3 million in funding from state lawmakers to provide medical services, but doesn't appear to have offered much in the way of services.
The Moreland report, which spans nearly 100 pages, says the investigation into this particular non-profit is inconclusive so far, and it didn't name names. We'd like to do our own digging, and we need your help. Check out the description of the place, including the details we highlight below, and tell us if you have any leads. What's the name of this non-profit? And who are the lawmakers who funded it?
We’re going to be reporting out the investigation on our end, and following up on any tips you all provide us (anonymously, if you prefer). Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can start cracking the case.
The Moreland Commission was empaneled by Governer Andrew Cuomo in July to investigate Albany practices. You can read the full report here -- including more puzzles -- or browse it below.
