Wall Street Holding One Political Fundraiser Per Day To Help Influence Financial Reform

prepares to vote as early as this week on legislation rewriting the rules for Wall Street, the financial industry is holding fundraisers for lawmakers at a rate of almost one every business day this month.

Some members of Congress have criticized Wall Street one month only to ask the industry for money the next. U.S. Representative John Adler, a New Jersey Democrat, demanded accountability from Wall Street in an April 29 statement. This week, he’s holding what is billed as a “financial services dinner” in Washington with a minimum contribution of $1000.
