Right after introducing legislation to stop big-money fundraisers, Gov. Cuomo is holding one featuring Paul Simon. Paul is a good guy -- sign petition asking him not to play Cuomo's fundraiser unless the governor actually passes campaign finance reform.

Ironically, the governor introduced a campaign-finance reform bill this week that would make this big-money fundraiser a thing of the past – and make New York a leader in publicly-funded elections. But will he actually fight to pass this bill?

With Albany’s legislative session ending in 1 week, the next few days will determine whether Cuomo is really a reformer or just offering this bill as a fig leaf.
Paul Simon probably didn’t mean to walk right into the middle of a controversial fundraising debate. But he did.

But here’s the thing: Paul Simon's a good guy. And he has the ability to force a good outcome. He just needs his fans to urge him to use his star power to do the right thing.

Signed, but I think if we look at happened to Montana campaign finance reform, we should know this must be done on a national level, state by state it keeps getting shot down.

What if Paul Simon wants to do what he wants to do.
What if he wants to go out and leave the whole thing -- and make music on his own -- away from this whole deal -- Paul Simon might be happier and MORE HELPFUL -- because he would inspiration -- away from it all ?
Or he could stay with this political stuff ?
WHAT- EVER Paul Simon thinks is best for him. It is not easy -- being an artist. People give alot and then they may need to get good rest.
