  •  Yup (7+ / 0-)

    this one does not cleave neatly down party lines.

    •  Pretty darn close though. (4+ / 0-)

      Only 1 Senate dem and in the House, less than 1/8 of NRA leeches were democrats.  

      Political compass: -8.75 / -4.72

    •  26 House Dems, vs. 218 House Reps. (6+ / 0-)

      My blue dog, Jim Matheson is among the highest paid recipients:  $6,950.00.

      1 Senate Dem, vs. 7 Senate Reps (of course, Orin Hatch is one of the seven).  

      ~85K to Dems vs ~620K to Reps.

      No, the division is not perfect, but it is definitely there.

      Josh "The Empty Suit" Mandel is #3 on the list. A man totally owned and controlled by special interests, but luckily they will not be controlling him in the U.S. Senate because he LOST. Number 2, sadly, is also from Ohio: Jim Renacci who defeated on of the best progressives in Congress, Betty Sutton, when Republican redistricting pitted the two incumbents against each other.

      It's pretty clear the NRA will never give a penny to my congresswoman. I was combing over her voting record one day and noticed she voted against a campaign finance disclosure bill. Since fair elections and controlling money in elections are among her passions, I called her office to find out what gave. It turns out the bill contained an exemption in disclosure for certain nonprofit groups — written so narrowly that the only group it applied to as the NRA. And she wasn't down with that.

      Jon Husted is a dick.
