Gov. Cuomo's appointees keep campaign funds open

"An active campaign fund is open to contributions from special interests looking to influence the recipient and allows ex-politicians in patronage jobs to stay in the political mix. Funds can be transferred to other politicians, including the governor. Donations to civic groups back home help maintain political influence and even if the campaign account isn't tapped, it signals the civil servant could choose to run for office again, perhaps for a more powerful elected position."

The AP has more.
