Is Haynes Receiving a Cristich Payback?
If you thought Chuck Devore’s huge margin of victory over Clinton Gore Supporter Cristi Cristich in 2004’s primary for the 70th Assembly District was the last you heard of her playing in Republican Politics, you were wrong. Last night, on the Secretary of State’s website a $4600 donation popped up from John Milazzo (Cristich’s husband) to the Ray Haynes for BOE Campaign (note, he had already given $1000 before). Many insiders who have watched the BOE race know that the Cristich endorsement during 2004 cost Haynes the YRFC Endorsement, as well as CRA. So the question is, does a Ray Haynes endorsement cost $5600? Ray Haynes conservative credentials were put into question when he endorsed Cristich, and now his ethics are put into question when he takes money from her husband. Maybe his poor fundraising has forced him to even stoop to this level.
