SEIU investing in NY law officials

Albany, NY County District Attorney David Soares has more than $35,000 in his re-election war chest, including close to $10,000 from the state's largest health care union, the latest campaign filings show. The prosecutor, elected to a four-year term in 2004 after he upset incumbent Paul Clyne in the Democratic primary, reeled in $9,747 from the political action fund for the 1199 SEIU, according to the state Board of Elections filings for July. Other noteworthy contributions to Friends of David Soares include $5,000 from the New York State Laborers, $2,500 from the Drug Policy Alliance Network and $1,000 from the New York State Troopers political action committee.

Meanwhile, the top individual contributor was activist Alice Green, executive director of Albany's Center for Law and Justice and a failed 2005 mayoral candidate, who contributed $1,000.
