New York Republican Jim Tedisco paints his 20th District special election opponent, Democrat Scott Murphy as too close to corporate interests, but Tedisco isn’t exactly distancing himself from corporations, either.

The longtime New York assemblyman has raised more than $30,000 from corporate and trade association political action committees since March 13, new fundraising disclosure reports reveal.  

That represents 60 percent of the nearly $55,000 Tedisco reported raising in the time period. Starting March 13, the two campaigns are now required to file reports of all donations they receive of $1000 or more.
