yes, super pacs are legal, but NOT from this type of anonymous shell company which could take 5 plus years to unravel.

the mayor has been involved in this type of activity for years going back to Better JC, Inc., a pac that was directly affiliated with him.

in October 2008, there was a $10,000 contribution from TLE Properties located on a dirt road in Stockton CA.

It’s disgusting and makes pay-to-play look like child’s play - but this specific type of activity was legalized by the Supreme Court six years ago. You can agree or disagree with that characterization - but it’s the law of the land right now.

Very disappointing to see a politician who a few years ago advocated for campaign finance reform slink away from that position. Makes me wonder if Councilman Fulop’s chest-thumping over pay-to-play was motivated by a sincere belief that it was wrong, or if he saw it simply as a means to get leverage over those who were employing it?

Seems like Fulop is just reaching for the cloak of progressivism when it's time to write a press release. Rest of the time, it's all realpolitik.

'Dark money' might be the new buzzword for Fulop-the largest donor, which gave $1,000,000, was registered in Delaware the day before the money was transferred! I wonder if anyone involved with it was in any of those redacted meetings or the ones that Fulop won't release on Freedom of Information act requests.

Donors to PAC with ties to Fulop are a 'who's who' of Jersey City

By Terrence T. McDonald | The Jersey Journal
February 01, 2016 at 11:48 AM

A super PAC that sources say is aligned with Mayor Steve Fulop has raised $3.2 million since July, a vast majority from donors giving $10,000 or more.

The fundraising totals for Coalition for Progress, released Friday evening, show nearly half of the total raised came from companies and individuals who do business in Jersey City and with City Hall. The federally registered PAC's president said its purpose is not to support only one candidate, but sources say it is expected to back Fulop's expected bid for the Democratic nomination for governor in 2017.

One source who asked not to be identified making comments that could be seen as critical as Fulop expressed astonishment at the number of Coalition for Progress' donors that have ties to Jersey City.

Fewer than 150 donors gave $3.2M to Fulop-aligned super PAC

POLITICO  - By Matt Friedman 7:47 p.m. | Jan. 29, 2016

It’s not what you would call grassroots fundraising.

A super PAC affiliated with allies of Jersey City Mayor Steve Fulop that’s expected to spend big money to boost his expected 2017 gubernatorial bid raised $3.2 million from fewer than 150 donors — one of whom gave $1 million.

But it’s not exactly clear who all of those donors are. The $1 million came from a company registered to a generic address in Wilmington, Delaware. It’s called DE First Holdings and little is available about it online.

The PAC said in a statement last week that it was not specifically set up to aide one candidate. But Fulop has raised money for it.

Dixon's $200,000 donation didn't do them much good when the deal to nix their upgrade reval fell through though. Still, it explains why Jersey City wanted to ignore higher taxes from some of the properties they upgraded.

Edited to add-On the other hand, if Fulop can delay the city wide reval for a year or so more the $200,000 donation would be money well spent by Dixon.

Every political contribution should be transparent.

Best two words in Fulop's world are 'super PAC' | Political Insider

Humorist Will Rogers had quite a number of quips about politics. For this column he would have said: "Politics has become so expensive that it takes a lot of money even to be defeated."

So you can imagine what will be spent to actually win the 2017 New Jersey gubernatorial election – more than enough to Advance to Boardwalk and not even need a Get Out of Jail card.

We are just getting a glimpse of the money machines – in particular the super Political Action Committees (PACs) that have become the nuclear cash creating monsters that are "influencing" the outcome of local and statewide elections. In Hudson County, we took notice when Max Pizarro reported Wednesday in politickernj.com that a new North Jersey Super PAC called Coalition for Progress seems to favor the progressive (new) ideas of Jersey City Mayor Steve Fulop.
