Remember that $135 million New York taxpayer subsidy for a GE silicon carbide facility in Albany and an IBM facility in Rochester that Governor Cuomo announced last week with GE CEO Jeff Immelt? It turns out:
GE gave $30,000 on November 12, 2013, to the New York State Democratic Committee's "housekeeping" account, $30,000 on December 6 to the same account, and another $30,000 on May 1, 2014 to the same account. That's $90,000 to the state Democratic Committee in less than seven months, shortly before the state's Democratic governor announces a plan to subsidize a new silicon carbide factory for GE in Albany. Where's the New York Times editorial decrying corporate campaign contributions?
