Document Drop : The Advance Group - Major Connections and Small Fines


State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman (WFP-New York), who has close political ties to loyalists of Mayor Bill de Blasio (WFP-New York City), assessed a puny $10,800 fine on The Advance Group this week to settle charges that the lobbying and campaign consulting firm had violated campaign finance laws.  

As a possible result of the campaign finance law violations, allegations have been made that The Advance Group may have tipped the 2013 New York City mayoral election in favor of Mayor de Blasio.
