Straniere's Finance Chair, a Clinton donor
Bob Straniere announced his new Finance Chair Michael Menicucci recently in a press release. He praised his choice;
“There is no one better to lead our fundraising efforts here in the city and in the greater New York area,” said Straniere.
An FEC search turn ups that Menicucci's only sizable federal contributions have been to Hillary Clinton. Menicucci and his firm Menicucci Vila & Associations have each contributed twice, here and here, to the Democratic Senator. It is quite telling of Straniere's campaign that he chooses someone to lead his fundraising efforts who is a Democratic donor, has never donated to Rep. Fossella in any significant amount nor Straniere's own campaign.
