Report Claims Forest City “Pays to Play”

A report from nonprofit Cause of Action charges that Forest City Enterprises has received huge government subsidies in exchange for political contributions, The New York Post was the first to report. However, the report fails to show a direct cause and effect. Even Atlantic Yards Report, which has been critical of the group’s Atlantic Yards Development, said the findings were a little too simplistic. “It should come as no surprise that we support candidates whose policies promote economic development and job creation,” said a spokesman for Forest City quoted in the Post. “However, to suggest or imply a direct connection between this support and our opportunities as a company is baseless and defamatory.”
