Anthony Williams and the Governor's Race

State Sen. Anthony Williams is flirting with the idea of running for governor. For more details see John Baer's Daily News Column, "Tony Williams for Gov?". Note this statement:

He says he has $500,000 in the bank and has pledges for another $500,000. He says the money isn't from his Senate campaign committee (which shows about $80,000 on hand) or the top sources that traditionally fund it - trial lawyers and unions.

This sounds great but there's no way to verify. Williams hasn't filed a campaign finance report since 2008. He hasn't filed papers to run for governor. Sen. Williams is, at this point, all talk and no substance. Show me the money, and where the money came from. Until then his claims amount to smoke and mirrors.
