Lobbyists, PACs Donate More to Democrats
Made popular 1660 days ago in
New campaign finance data shows that Democrats now receive far more campaign cash from lobbyists and corporate fund-raising arms than Republicans.
Lobbyists have donated twice as much to Democrats as Republicans this year - and corporate PACs have sent 60% of their money to Democrats, according to the data. That's a reversal from just a few years ago when Republicans controlled Congress and the White House.
The change has left Democratic candidates for Congress with far more money than Republicans as they prepare for the 2010 midterm elections. Democratic candidates raised $153.5 million in the first six months of the 2009-10 election cycle, about 62% more than Republican candidates, according to the nonpartisan Center for Responsive Politics.
The party that controls Washington nearly always receives a most of the donations from lobbyist and corporate PACs because the majority party has more ability to write the law.
So far this year, lobbyists have made 70% of their donations to Democrats - up from 37% in 2006, according to the data.

Are Democrats the biggest crooks?
Yup, It sure looks like it
Not really, just the way the system is built
This is not a scientific survey,
to learn more. Results may not total 100% due to rounding and voting descrepencies.

Lobbyists give the most money to whoever is in the majority at that moment. Democrats and Republicans are all whores.

Democrats are crooks, cowards & tax evaders. They have the media on their side covering for them. They have always been the worst offenders in the money race. ACORN is a small example of how bad the Democrats are.
