    According to a review by, almost $3 million was contributed by the Amalgamated Transit Union and Service Employees International Union to almost exclusively Democratic members of the Assembly and State Senate over the last three years.

    “They are giving a lot of money, but it’s not unusual,” Pamela Behrsin of Maplight said, adding that it doesn’t surprise her. “There’s just a lot of money in politics. When unions and corporations are paying for politicians to get into power and stay into power, it’s clear legislators are working for two masters; the donor and the voter.”

    ALEC, bad. ATU, good. Rinse, repeat.
    Our whores are so much prettier than their whores, n'est-ce pas?
