Companies, partnerships and individuals connected to Charles J. Kushner have given over $1 million ($1,008,600) to federal candidates and national party committees in 1999-2000. The operation involved at least 72 partnership/companies and 75 individuals/employees in and around Florham Park, New Jersey.
The principal recipients were the Democratic National Committee ($383,300); Committee For Working Families ($140,000), a federal political action committee linked to Mayor Jim McGreevey of Woodbridge, NJ; Mayor Rudolph Giuliani ($100,000, of which $38,000 was returned); Hillary Clinton ($79,250); Jon Corzine ($72,000); Senator Robert Torricelli ($57,000); and former Vice President Al Gore ($51,000).
The employee relationship, timing and bundling of the donations has raised questions about who controlled the money and if the money was laundered by the use of "straw" donor names. In the case of the Committee for Working Families, eighteen donations ($90,000) came in on the same day, May 2, 2000. In the case of Mayor Giuliani, thirty-three donations ($63,000) came in on March 31, 1999, and thirty-five donations ($35,000) came in on December 29, 1999. In the case of Hillary Clinton, sixty-eight donations ($68,000) came in on June 29, 2000. In the case of Sen. Torricelli, eighteen donations ($18,000) came in on January 22, 1999, and thirty-eight donations more ($38,000) came in on February 19, 1999. In the case of Al Gore, thirty-three donations ($33,000) came in on December 30, 1999, and twenty-five more ($25,000) on February 10, 2000. In the case of Jon Corzine, thirty donations ($30,000) came in on February 24, 2000, and eighteen more ($18,000) on March 6, 2000, and twelve more ($12,000) on March 31, 2000.
Individuals making the largest number of donations were: George Gellert (29 for $60,250), Murray Kushner (25 for $36,900), Charles Kushner (22 for $38,000), Mrs. Rae Kushner (22 for $26,000), Richard Stadtmauer (21 for $30,000) Linda Laulicht (20 for $37,000), and Dara Kuskner (15 for $33,000).
Partnerships/companies listed as employer or as a donor of $25,000 or more were Kushner Companies, Bruckner Plaza Associates, Elmwood V Associates, Long Brook Associates, Montgomery Associates, Mt Arlington Apartment Associates, Quail Ridge Associates, Riverside Park Industrial Associates, and Wallkill Apartment Associates.
There is a federal prohibition against giving in the name of another, and using corporate funds to reimburse employees for contributions to federal political campaigns.
Other political donations were brought into question last week when it was disclosed that nine real estate partnerships believed to be controlled by Kushner had donated $35,000 to New York City mayoral candidate Alan Hevesi and $25,000 to Mark Green. There is a New York City $4,500 limit on contributions from persons or a group controlled by the same person.
And nearly all of it went to democrats...
They think if they're caught nothing major will happen and if not caught they've proud of their accomplishment....Really pulled one over on the system....
.....and to RINOS.......
Yeah, it's a surprise....that they were actually exposed and fined.
All development issues in NJ are being driven by rich democrat developers who make millions by controlling the decisions and funnel much $$ to the democrat machine. This I know very much from first hand experience. The allegedly liberal and environmentally friendly dems are bought and owned by the big money debvelopers. Note also McGreevy's links to big time billboard companies that erect massive signs along state highways in violation of regulations. Development is being pushed along corridors in which the dems have major property interests.
