Follow the money

This link from Open Secrets has been floating around a bit this morning, and I thought it worth posting. It really needs to be blasted on the front pages of the dinosaur media in huge headline fonts, but oh well...wish in one hand and shit in the other and tell me which one fills up first, right?

Without further ado, the top five recipients of campaign donations from Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac employees and PACs:
  1. Dodd, Christopher J, D-CT $133,900
  2. Kerry, John, D-MA $111,000
  3. Obama, Barack, D-IL $105,849
  4. Clinton, Hillary, D-NY $75,550
  5. Kanjorski, Paul E, D-PA $65,500
Yeah, Barney Frank (D-MA) and Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) are on the list, too, but they didn't make the top five.
