Investigative Post this week launches a new feature, Money In Politics, based on research and analysis by Ken Kruly, who has had a distinguished career in government finance. Money In Politics will be accompanied by a companion podcast that will feature Ken and Geoff Kelly, who covers government and politics for Investigative Post.
The first podcast, posted below, recaps Ken’s findings on the fundraising efforts of Sean Ryan, the Assemblyman running for state Senate. Ken found Ryan’s major donors include many out-of-town labor unions. He and Geoff also discuss the prospects of Mayor Byron Brown running for an unprecedented term, and what politicians do with their unused campaign funds when they retire.
