Both Parties My Ass

UPDATE: AMERICAblog has the list with more accurate totals (I simply used the totals listed on the FEC pages) . For Rethugs, that is. The Dem total is still spot on.

A quick check of Jack Abramoff's FEC filings shows a grand total of $83,379 given to Republican candidates (and two Independents) & PACs supporting Republican candidates, plus an additional $5,000 to Repubs through joint fundraising. No listings (sorry) for skyboxes or golf outings to Scotland.

Total $ given to Democratic candidates:


Nada. Zip. Bupkes. Goose egg. Nil. Zilch.

And we're supposed to believe that both parties were on the take--equally, no less-- from this guy???
