An effort to quash a subpoena aimed at getting more information from a political consultant firm with ties to the shadowy Common Sense Principles committee has been adjourned until April 4, according to court documents filed late last week.

The adjournment comes as Gov. Andrew Cuomo has been pushing the Legislature to adopt a series of ethics reforms he inserted in his $142 billion budget proposal.

The firm, Strategic Advantage International, has been fighting an effort from the Moreland Commission on Public Corruption that is trying to determine who funded the group, which was aligned with Senate Republicans during the 2012 election cycle.

Common Sense Principles, designated a 501(c)4 non-profit, spent millions in the 2012 political campaign blasting three Democratic candidates for Senate: Sens. Ted O’Brien, George Latimer and Joe Addabbo.

The group skirted disclosure rules by filing paperwork with ethics regulators that showed its sole contribution came from an apparent shell company, effectively shielding individual donors.

Attorney General Eric Schneiderman’s office has argued in court filings that having a better grasp of how Common Sense Principles was able to avoid sunlight was provide the Moreland Commission with an understanding of how dark money in state politics works.

But the company is fighting the subpoena, calling the effort unduly burdensome and a violation of its First Amendment rights.

The state Legislature in a separate legal challenge argues the commission doesn’t have the authority to seek more information on lawmakers’ outside income.
