Political donations by occupation: Writers

Filed under: Fun — marcia at 8:07 pm on Thursday, March 20, 2008

The Huffington Post has a fun thingy — FundRace 2008 –that lets you look up political donations based on all sorts of criteria. Searching for political donations by those who list their occupation as “writer” shows that writers donated almost $2 million … with about $1.7 million of that going to Democrats.

Some people I’ve heard of:

Dean Koontz donated $4,600 to Mitt Romney (He also donated $2,300 to Fred Thompson)
David Mamet donated $4,600 to Christopher Dodd
Michael Chabon donated $4,600 to Barack Obama
John Grisham and Amy Tan donated $4,600 each to Hillary Clinton

I don’t know what this is, besides a strange way I entertained myself for 10 minutes. Politics!
