Slaying The Myth That Corporations Are The “Money In Politics” Problem

At NRO’s The Corner, Kevin Williams restates the list of top ten political donors thusly:

Democratic/Union Goon proxy: $51 million

Death Star, Inc.: $46 million

Union Goons (public sector): $43 million

The Committee to Re-Inflate the Bubble by Electing Democrats: $38 million

The Bankers Who Elected Barack Obama: $33 million

Democratic trial lawyers: $33 million

Union Goons: $33 million

Union Goons (public sector): $32 million

Union Goons: $30 million

Union Goons: $30 million

No wonder the Democrats are obsessed with the Citizens United case.  They need a shiny object to distract people from the real scandal about political money.

By the way, Death Star, Inc. is AT&T — rent seeker extraordinaire.  Telecommunications regulation moves billions of dollars between companies on a regular basis, so we know what AT&T is trying to buy.
