"Wealthy group seeks to reform election giving in New York. An unusual and well-heeled coalition, trying to tap public anger over the flood of money into politics, is pushing to enact a public financing system for elections in NY State. The backers include . . ." oh, shit, wait a minute.

The coalition, called New York Leadership for Accountable Government, includes such "luminaries" as Jonathan Soros (yep, Georgie's boy), FaceBook founder Chris Hughes (OP note: I know how much you all love FB, but FB is NOT your friend), David Rockefeller, Sr. (RED FLAG), investment bankers (!), and several former elected officials, including ex-Mayor Ed Kock (sorry, Koch). The group is also supported by the Committee for Economic Development ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Committee_for_Economic_Development ), a think-tank backed by a couple hundred executives from dozens of Fortune 500 companies.

So, my question is, what could they really up to? Feedback anyone?

Good question, gnomunny. Whatever they're actually doing, I doubt finance reform is their ultimate goal.
