The Committee to Save New York received $17.4 million in donations in 2011 when contributors were anonymous. But when the state ethics board required donors to be identified after July 2012, the group got no donations.
The tax record provided by the committee shows the group received $1.15 million in January of 2012, five months before names would have to be revealed. Those included a payment by one person of $600,000.
The business-based committee has funded TV ad blitzes boosting Cuomo's proposals and popularity at no cost to his campaign.
