Ex-NY Rep. Mondaire Jones received nearly $25K in salary from campaigns: ‘Not a great look’

Former Rep. Mondaire Jones has received almost $25,000 in salary payments from two of his congressional campaigns, according to financial disclosures, raising questions about whether he is improperly taking advantage of federal election rules.

The Democrat’s principal campaign committee paid Jones $2,629.31 approximately every two weeks between April 4 and June 4 of this year — adding up to $13,146.55, Federal Election Commission (FEC) records show.

The payments are marked as “salary” and give Jones’ address as an apartment located in Nyack, whereas earlier records filed with the Westchester County Board of Elections list an apartment across the Hudson River in Sleepy Hollow.


Lawrence Mandelker, a veteran campaign finance and election lawyer who previously worked for the late New York Democratic Sen. Daniel Patrick Moynihan, told The Post that Jones’ donor-funded salary was “not a great look.”


This is not the first time Jones has lined his own pockets with campaign funds.

In 2020, Mondaire for Congress paid Jones more than $11,000 in salary, according to House financial disclosures, but the lawmaker didn’t report the money until after he was out of office, in an amended September 2023 filing.
