Schumer’s hefty cheesecake spending was first reported by The New York Post. Federal Election Commission filings show the Friends of Schumer PAC has spent varying amounts on Junior's Cheesecake for “supporter acknowledgements” dating back to at least 2009.
Schumer said he uses the cheesecakes as gifts and in bets, noting that he once made such a wager when the Green Bay Packers were playing the New York Giants.
