    I think OpenSecrets does a huge disservice to politics by classing individual human beings' donations as belonging to some sort of industry.

      But, for example, Kyrsten Sinema probably didn't get money from Norman Lear because she's in hock to the television industry--it was probably more because she's on the board of the People for the American Way Foundation and he founded People for the American Way.  I think the OpenSecrets approach is defensible as a crude start, but it should never be confused with a careful fundraising analysis.
