Nora Anderson, who is scheduled to become Manhattan surrogate on Jan. 1, has pleaded not guilty to charges that she falsely reported $250,000 pumped into her campaign as her own money when in fact the funds came from Seth Rubenstein, the lawyer in whose office she has worked for the last nine years. Rubenstein, a well known trust and estates lawyer, likewise pleaded not guilty to the same charges of making contributions above campaign spending limits and concealing the source of the contributions.
