Senator Jeff Klein’s spokeswoman Candice Giove released this statement yesterday regarding the Senator’s opponent Oliver Koppell’s failure to file a financial disclosure form this week required of all candidates raising funds:

“Senator Klein’s challenger, a former New York State Attorney General, didn’t waste time violating the law and failed to disclose his campaign donors to the public by the appointed deadline. On the campaign trail Mr. Koppell talks about campaign finance reform, a measure which Senator Klein continues to tirelessly advocate for in the State Senate, and yet, he cannot follow the rules of our current system. Mr. Koppell should be fined. While candidates were busy submitting their disclosures, Mr. Koppell’s campaign instead blasted out a classless, disparaging fundraising email in a tone that’s become the hallmark of his baseless race.”
