New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s probe of nonprofit executive salaries could put him in jeopardy with some of his major donors, reports the New York Daily News.

Cuomo recently organized a task force to investigate high salaries at nonprofit groups that receive state funding. But state records show that about half a dozen of Cuomo’s major donors are executives at these organizations, the Daily News reported.


“Our campaign finance system constantly puts elected officials in awkward positions,” said Susan Lerner, executive director of Common Cause/New York. “This is just another way in which having to raise large amounts of money privately can make things uncomfortable after the election is actually won.”


Among the donors who may be a part of Cuomo’s probe are George McDonald and two family members, who have donated a combined $39,500 to Cuomo’s campaign since 2007.


McDonald is president of the Doe Fund, a nonprofit homeless services organization known for the uniformed workers it sends out into New York City to clean the streets. His compensation package in 2009 was worth $507,156, according to the group’s latest IRS 990 form.
