Assembly Minority Leader Brian Kolb and Senate Minority Leader John Flanagan each have appointees on the commission that could determine the future of how campaigns are paid for with public dollars and the practice of allowing candidates to run on multiple ballot lines.

But on Thursday, the commission appointees for the Republicans argued the commission is unconstitutional and can’t alter fusion voting, a provision that is key for the future of the Conservative and Working Families parties.

“Today, I join my Republican colleagues to support the legal efforts of the State Conservative Party and Working Families Party to put a merciful end to the unconstitutional charade being carried out by Democrats,” Kolb said in a statement.

He said the panel has “absolutely no accountability” to New Yorkers.

Flanagan in a separate statement agreed.

“Democrats controlling this state violated the very responsibilities given to them by the people by putting their duties in the hands of nine unelected, and therefore unaccountable, Public Campaign Finance and Elections commissioners,” he said. “This unconstitutional abdication of authority must be struck down by the Court.”

The commission was devised earlier this year to hash out the specifics of a system of publicly financed campaigns in an arrangement that was strikingly similar to a commission devised to approve pay raises for state lawmakers and statewide elected officials.

But the wrangling over fusion voting has grabbed attention in the discussion. The commission’s legality is being challenged by the Conservative Party as well as the Working Families Party in separate legal challenges.

The WFP did not endorse Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s re-election and one of his appointees on the panel, Democratic Party Chairman Jay Jacobs, has been critical of fusion voting and lined up opponents of it to speak at a hearing.

“In addition, the same New York Democrats who pretend to be champions of choice and inclusion are now hell-bent on extinguishing the voices of third-parties and their supporters,” Kolb said. “It’s no surprise the governor and his political minions want to end fusion voting. However it’s disappointing that no other New York Democrats have the courage to stand up to them.”

The commission itself, however, will continue to meet and is due to release a report with recommendations by Dec. 1, which lawmakers can either allow to become law or act to alter by the end of the year.
