New York City Candidate John Liu and 2013 NYC Campaign Finance Board Staff recommends No Matching Funds

See http://politicker.com/2013/08/john-lius-campaign-battling-to-get-its-matching-funds/ for article

Also see http://transparent.brooklyncoop.org/chart?chart1=Sum-Contribution-Match&type1=recipient&order1=Value&limit1=30

This shows that Liu's campaign claims $620K of contributions that qualify for public matching funds.

That means at a $6 public fund to $1 match, Liu's campaign would receive 6*$620,000 = $3,720,000.

We, as a society, need to make sure our candidates represent our interests.
