In light of the public bailout of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, the New York Times published a story this week using statistics derived from the Center for Responsive Politics a non partisan research organization.
And guess what. As Gomer Pyle would say “Soorprize, soorprize, soorprize!!”.
Since 1998 our friend Barack Obama has taken more money from the PAC’s representing these two companies and their employees than ANY Senator other than Christopher Dodd, chairman of the Senate Banking Committee (it’s typical for the chairman of a relevant committee to be the largest recipient. Conflict of interest be damned.)
But check those dates.
The Research went back to 1998 and was looking for anyone. Barack has only been in the Senate since 2005!!!
He has taken more than $120,000 from these groups.
Yup, small internet contributions. That’s all!!!
