New York City campaign finance

The New York Times praises Mayor Bloomberg's appointment of Frederick Schwarz Jr. in A Solid Choice for City Campaign Chief. What the Times does not mention is that Schwarz is the interim president of the Brennan Center, a non-profit organization involved in reform of the campaign finance system. One consequence of this appointment is that the Brennan Center will be conflicted out of some NYC campaign finance cases.
