    What should we call this:

    Kerry funded by GWB supporters?

    •  Yeah, Kerry takes money from GOP donors ... (2.60)
      Why is this any different than Nader? They gave to Bush and Kerry but they can't give to Nader? Come on.
    •  Help me out here ... (none)
      This table has a footnote that says Totals reflect individual and PAC contributions based on Federal Election Commission data released electronically March 3, 2004.  If that's written in English, I'd say it means that the money listed above was not contributed by these companies per se, but by individual employees, or PACs established by these companies (which I assume are in turn contributed to by employees ... ?)  

      So how much, if any, of these numbers show individual employees of the same company having contributed to different candidates, rather than individual employees or company PACs having contributed to both candidates?  

      If the former case is included in this table, I think it does not precisely show 'Kerry funded by Bush supporters'.
