Not everyone is running from Andrew Cuomo. The top data firm for the Democrat National Committee is sticking by the outgoing governor.
According to The Washington Free Beacon:
A top Democratic National Committee firm is allowing outgoing New York governor Andrew Cuomo to solicit donations, even as party leaders and fundraising platforms have abandoned the scandal-plagued Democrat in the wake of sexual harassment allegations.
Democratic Party data behemoth NGP VAN has given Cuomo a platform to collect donations from supporters through his official campaign website. NGP VAN is a major player in liberal politics, serving as the sole proprietor of the Democratic National Committee’s voter database. Its relationship with Cuomo stands in contrast, however, to the Democratic power players, including President Joe Biden and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (N.Y.), who abandoned him after a state report called sexual misconduct accusations against him credible.
ActBlue, the largest liberal fundraising platform in the country, removed Cuomo on Aug. 5 following Washington Free Beacon inquiries. In the wake of ActBlue’s decision, left-wing activists turned their ire towards NGP VAN. Melissa Byrne, a two-time Bernie Sanders campaign alum who was banned from the Trump Tower, praised ActBlue for removing Cuomo. She is now demanding that NGP VAN follow suit.
“Actblue putting a line out there puts all campaigns on notice,” Byrne wrote hours after ActBlue removed Cuomo. “It is meaningful in the space.” Byrne specifically called on the data collection organization to remove Cuomo: “Will @NGPVAN keep Cuomo off their fundraising tool?”
Cuomo has an $18 million war chest and under New York law Cuomo can use that for another gubernatorial run or donate to other campaigns.
