Money and Politics

Donars.2014

The way we hear democrats scream about outside money in politics, you would be sure that all the money was going to republicans.  But that wouldn’t be true.

I went to Open Secrets and found the data from the 2014 cycle.  Interesting.

In the top 10, only 1 – the 10th place listing, goes to republicans.  In 9th, the break is nearly 50-50.

The top 8 are all democrat donors.

And the demonized Koch brothers?  14th.

  1. A manager of an American league team might hate the Designated hitter rule, and believe the National League more pure. But if he’s running an AL team he will be forced to try to find the best DH he can, because that’s the rules by which the game is played. Democrats may hate money in politics, but if that’s the way the game is played, then it’s only rational for them to play it to win!

      Sure – but then don’t demonize the Kochs.
