    Isn't this the same thing Orsini did?

    A friends of Jim Domagalski cocktail reception. Is this like roast for the guy like Dean Martin used to have?

    What do you get for $1000 as the host? Is it tax deductible as advertising?

    It is his committee " Friends of Jim Domagalski " Apparently he is getting ready to run against Volker but hasn't announced..

    That is going to be an interesting race..

    I bet that ad cost more than the fundraiser..
    Kiss someone that's different. It helps.
    Lets get the facts first, then go for the jugular!!
    It's all transparent, just read between the lines..

    it goes to the party then to jim, one thing you don't understand W.N.Y. Orsini's p.a.c was friends of tony orsini these funds were used and documented and went for campaign expense, tony was a candidate for the office of State Committeeman, he also ran for delagate to the annual office of judical delagate mailings, auto expense,office,meeting,etc, this was kept seperate from party expense, when doing party business that was voted on by entire committe and passed with 100% he submitted expences to the party, that were party expence although tony did not always agree with Ford Beckwith he respected his hard work and intelligence. notso with people like drajon slayer, Ford went over Tony's expences with a fine tooth comb ,found nothing wrong to Tony that was a compliment. Because Ford does at least have a brain knows the business, not like Mesue, and dragon ha ha Slayer

    That's not what ford said with your fund raisers... along with others..

    If the fundraiser goes to the party coffers first then distributed to who ever that is cool. No shady business or something that may look "unethical"..

    WoW! I didn't see that one coming. Wonder who Pigeon/Golisano will be supporting? I'm betting the on the "reformer" Volker. I also wonder who the Teabaggers will be supporting, could it be "independent" candidate Volker?

    Under Sway of Two Billionaires, Independence Party Begins to Fracture

    Under an arrangement struck in January with Tom Golisano and New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, the state Independence Party will receive funding from the billionaires in exchange for control of their ballot line in certain races.

    While the arrangement sounds good on paper, it may be causing a fracture between the state party and local Independence Party county chairs, who do not want to cede local control of their ballot lines to the billionaires.

    In Erie County, for instance, Independence Party chair Frank MacKay has given Steve Pigeon, Golisano’s deputy and the top political operative for Responsible New York, the go-ahead to choose who gets the Independence Party line.

    But the county party has resisted.

    That has led to litigation in which the state party is seeking to remove the county party’s authority to choose candidates.

    Meanwhile, at a May 17 meeting of the Independence Party’s executive committee in Albany, Onondaga County Independence Party Chair Maleta Snell was officially stripped of her power to make endorsements. She claimed this was because she would not commit to only backing the Republican State Senate candidates likely to get Bloomberg’s nod.

    “They’re corrupt as hell,” Snell muttered, as MacKay went through the formal motions of stripping her power. “They do this in county after county after county. If they can’t control you, they disband you.”

    Snell has also filed litigation against the state party.

    MacKay said that under party rules, Snell had not demonstrated that she had enough support in Onondaga County to continue having the authority to make endorsements.

    He asserted that the party was committed to allowing county party leaders to remain autonomous, citing the recent peaceful transfer of power in Monroe County from a chair favored by the party to a less friendly challenger.

    It goes into Jim's pocket otherwise the checks would state make payable to the "Erie County Committee".

    Jim should run.. Volker has been there almost 4 decades. More that half his life.
