Quinn Deputy Gets Fined
February 1st, 2010

The City’s Conflicts of Interest Board fined Council Speaker Christine Quinn’s former deputy chief of staff for soliciting campaign donations while also working on the city’s campaign finance reform legislation in 2007.

The staffer, Maura Keaney, also worked on Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s re-election campaign last fall.

The City Charter prohibits any public employee with “substantial policy discretion” from soliciting donations for any elected official. In April 2007, Keaney made between six and a dozen phone calls to unions members requesting they be on a host committee for a Quinn fundraiser, which would have entitled them to make a contribution to Quinn’s then-campaign for mayor.

Keaney was fined $2,500 by the board.

The disposition is below.
