The Favor of Big Money Donors

On April 4, 2014, in Barack Obama, by LorieRubybulb

[guest post by Dana] After this week’s Supreme Court campaign finance decision based on the First Amendment right to free political speech, Harry Reid immediately exercised his own right to free political speech, “The Supreme Court today just accentuated what they did on Citizens United, which is a decision that is one of the worst decisions in the history of that court,” the Nevada Democrat said. “All it does is take away people’s rights because, as you know, the Koch brothers are trying to buy America.” This was followed by exercising his right to mad tweeting, “Today’s Supreme Court ruling gives even more power to the wealthiest few who are trying to buy our democracy, like the Koch Brothers.” So, where do the largest political donations really go? The answer is not surprising: Of the 20 largest current overall political donors , 62 percent of the biggest donors’ money went to support the Democrats. In descending order: -a couple of hedge-fund guys who give 100 percent of their donations (more than $11 million) to Democrats -people associated with the city government of New York (84 percent to Democrats) -Democratic Governors Association, the National Education Association (89 percent to Democrats) -the Carpenters and Joiners Union (79 percent to Democrats) -the American Federation of State, County, and Municipal employees (100 percent to Democrats) -the AFL-CIO (81 percent to Democrats) -the National Association of Realtors (53 percent to Republicans) -the electrical workers unions (97 percent to Democrats) -AT&T (62 percent to Republicans) -Lockheed Martin (61 percent to Republicans -Comcast (58 percent to Democrats) -the engineers union (79 percent to Democrats) -Northrop (57 percent to Republicans) -American Association for Justice (i.e., lawyers, 96 percent to Democrats) -Honeywell (58 percent to Republicans) -Boeing (57 percent to Republicans) -Votesane PAC (70 percent to Republicans) -Every Republican Is Crucial PAC (100 percent to Republicans) -Laborers’ union (90 percent to Democrats) (Two points: The first GOP donation comes in at #8, and note the trend in GOP groups) No word from Harry Reid about this. –Dana

Harry Reid: A History Of Infamy

On March 29, 2014, in Barack Obama, by qid9o5gk

Over the last two days, we’ve seen a lot of Democrats get busted for corruption. Even for making arms deals for missile launchers with Islamic rebels, and murder for hire. The karma wheel has rolled around to Harry Reid too, who is now being looked at by the FEC for campaign money being paid to […]
