So how come there hasn't been more reaction today to this AP story, which says AIG gave $100,000 to the New York State Democratic Committee last year, just before the state launched the first government rescue effort for the massive insurance company, and before the federal government started giving it hundreds of billions of dollars? I hope the folo-up stories are being saved for print editions tomorrow, because this looks fishy on its face. Republican congressional candidate Jim Tedisco did put out a statement, saying it "raises many troubling questions –- it also explains why the unpopular Governor is fundraising so feverishly for Scott Murphy ... how much of that dirty AIG money has already been spent by the State Democrat Party in support of Scott Murphy’s campaign? When will Scott Murphy call on the State Democratic Party to return that tainted AIG money?” In the AP story, Gov. Paterson's spokesman says the governor didn't know about the contribution last year, and Tedisco's statement doesn't explain why he thinks it has anything to do with Paterson's support for Murphy now. If the topic came up tonight in Tedisco's public conference call with thousands, or in the WMHT debate between Democrat Murphy and Libertarian candidate Eric Sundwall (I tuned in to parts of both events, which took place at the same time), then I missed it.
