Summary This Times-Ledger series looked "at the campaign finances of political candidates from Queens for the state legislature and Congress." The investigation found that "incumbents who did not face serious opposition" tended to receive the most significant contributions and to spend them on fund-raisers, political consultants and election campaigns of other candidates. The series also revealed some cases when candidates failed to file their campaign finance reports on time.
