The New York District Attorney is responsible for conducting all investigations and prosecutions of campaign finance violations in the State of New York.

Governance

There is one District Attorney for each of New York's 62 counties[1].

Campaign finance discipline

If any person feels a person or a committee violated the state's campaign finance laws, the first step is to file a complaint with the New York District Attorney in the county where the offense happened[2]. The District Attorney handles all investigation and prosecutions regardless if it involves civil or criminal laws[2].
