GOP Attorney General Candidate Daniel Donovan Relying on Controversial Figures by - NY Daily News

GOP attorney general candidate Daniel Donovan is 'willing to do anything to get elected,' says Eric Schneiderman's camp.

GOP attorney general candidate Daniel Donovan has promised to clean up Albany - but he's relying on controversial figures Armand D'Amato and former Erie County Executive Joel Giambra to help him with a fund-raiser on Thursday.
D'Amato, brother of former U.S. Sen. Alfonse D'Amato (R-N.Y.), was convicted in 1993 of mail fraud, though the conviction was later reversed. And Giambra was investigated by then-state Attorney General Eliot Spitzer for pay-to-play shenanigans but was never charged.
Donovan spokeswoman Virginia Lam said the two work for the ex-senator, "who has been a great friend to the campaign." Rival Eric Schneiderman's camp blasted Donovan for being "willing to do anything to get elected."
