Money in Politics – Donor Information on Congress


Open Secrets has interesting data on the major contributors for all Senate and House members. Influence, earmarks and Lobbying. It is fascinating that the GA 6 special election to be held June 20, 2017 is awash in money. The Dems apparently counting on this election to shore up their losing streak. $8 Mil raised opposed to less than half a Mil for the GOP as of the end of March.

“Here’s the place for head-to-head campaign finance comparisons of candidates in every U.S. House and Senate race since the 1999-2000 election cycle. You can explore the relative size of their contributions, the top industries and interest groups supporting them, where the money came from geographically, and much more”.

    I have been saying for several years now that the only people who have the right – yes, the right – to donate to any candidate or elected official are constituents. Only people – not groups, PACs, unions, political parties, businesses, corporations – but actual individuals who are eligible to vote for the candidate or issue on the ballot can donate. That’s it. No one else.

    That would return the loyalty, dependence, and obedience of our representatives to us. It needs to be done, and done quickly!

        Obviously with the looks of things. I wonder why the sectors that donate to a certain candidate seem to get an earmark of the same interest. Amazing coincidence.
