Subpoenas served concerning $541,599 that Golden’s campaign fund[s] spent over years at a well-known local catering hall connected to Golden and his family, the Bay Ridge Manor
Timing of U.S. Attorney’s actions suspicious, considering Golden’s opponent conducted a major demonstration at the Bay Ridge Manor yesterday — featuring anti-corruption speakers and exhibits showing that Golden’s Campaign had spent $541,599 at the ...Manor
The article in the New York Post today is short and to the point. In part this is what it’s says: “US Attorney Preet Bharara is investigating the campaign finances of Brooklyn state Sen. Martin Golden, The Post has learned. *** Golden has hired Gottlieb & Gordon, a law firm that specializes in government investigations and white-collar crime defenses, in response to a subpoena from the Manhattan federal prosecutor’s office. *** “The campaign fund is being looked at,” acknowledged Golden, Brooklyn’s only elected Republican official. *** But he said he didn’t know why his campaign fund was being targeted....” ( See “Bharara investigating Golden’s campaign finances” by Carl Campanile & Rich Calder, 10/9/14, NY Post [http://nypost.com/2014/10/09/bharara-investigating-goldens-campaign-finances/]).
Enough said about that for now, but isn’t it odd these subpoenas are in the news today, right after Marty Golden’s Democratic Party opponent Jamie Kemmerer had a major event in front of the Bay Ridge Manor yesterday. One of the most notable items in one of the photos of that event was an exhibit on poster board, entitled “The Golden Rule” showing the $541,599 that Golden’s campaign allegedly spent at the Manor [btw, that number had been widely known for some time] ( See yesterday’s post “Early Coverage in New York Observer first to tell the tale of today's Jamie Kemmerer rally in front of Golden’s Bay Ridge Manor” and the comments related to it, below on this blog).
