A follow up to What? Richie Richman is a Democrat?
The chart below is based on data from Opensecrets.org which has a large database on political contributions. Notice something? The top contributors send their money to support liberal causes. Interestingly, once you get below the top 10 contributors on the second chart the contributions are almost 50/50. In other words, the 1% of the wealthiest contribute heavily to Democrats and Democratic causes.
Really no surprise since, as the Associated Press recently reported, the six wealthiest Congressional Districts and eight of the top ten districts are represented by Democrats.
Gee, why do you think that is?
The truth is both liberal and conservative candidates and causes get a lot of money from the wealthy.
