DAN GOLDMAN, DEMOCRATIC NOMINEE FOR CONGRESS IN NY-10, ENDORSED BY END CITIZENS UNITED // LET AMERICA VOTE
New York, NY - Dan Goldman, Democratic nominee for Congress in NY-10, was today endorsed by End Citizens United // Let America Vote. Goldman has committed to fighting the influence of Big Money in politics and protecting and expanding the freedom to vote.
“In Washington, corporate special interests have a massive influence on elections and policy outcomes. That’s why Congress needs an anti-corruption and voting rights champion like Dan Goldman, who will bring real change for all New Yorkers. Goldman refuses to be bought by corporate PAC money, so he’s ready to lead the fight against corrupt politicians seeking to undermine the will of voters and do the bidding of their special interest backers,” said End Citizens United // Let America Vote President Tiffany Muller. “We are excited to endorse Dan Goldman and look forward to helping him win in November.”
“Corporate and dark money special interests are a cancer on our politics,” Dan Goldman said. “As a career public servant who has tackled corruption, I am proud to have the endorsement of End Citizens United and Let America Vote and look forward to standing with them in the fight against the corrupting influence of dark money and special interests.”
ECU // LAV is a leading anti-corruption and voting rights group. The grassroots-funded political action committee raised and spent $65.5 million in the 2020 election cycle to elect candidates fighting to limit the influence of big money in politics and protect the freedom to vote. ECU // LAV has more than four million members nationwide.
Dan Goldman and his wife, Corinne, live in lower Manhattan where they are raising their five children. In 2019, Dan Goldman served as lead counsel for the impeachment investigation of President Donald J. Trump for abusing his office for his personal interest regarding Ukraine. In that role, Goldman led depositions and questioned witnesses in public hearings, and testified before the House Judiciary Committee.
Prior to that, Goldman served for a decade as an Assistant United States Attorney in the Southern District of New York working with Preet Bharara. In that role, he held powerful actors accountable and made our city safer. He took on some of the office’s biggest and most consequential cases: prosecuting violent criminals and gun trafficking, mafia bosses and Russian organized crime, and landmark insider trading and major corporate fraud cases. In law school, Goldman contributed to Michelle Alexander’s seminal book, The New Jim Crow, which addressed the inequalities in our criminal justice system.
