The commissioners of New York's anti-corruption commission confirm they are investigating the little regulated "housekeeping accounts" of political parties and campaign committees.
The Moreland Commission confirms the probe that was first reported last month by The Associated Press.
Housekeeping accounts are loosely regulated accounts of political organizations that can accept large amounts of contributions with few restrictions on how the money is spent. The accounts aren't subject to the same restrictions as individual politician's campaign contributions and spending.
The commission is investigating the housekeeping accounts of the state Republican, Democratic, Independence and Conservative parties. It is also probing the accounts of the Democratic and Republican campaigns in the Senate and Assembly.
