Cory Booker, Mitch McConnell Have Same Donors

If you're even dimly aware of the fevered ego that is neo-liberal Senator Cory Booker, you're not surprised by this news:

Sens. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) and Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) share at least one thing: campaign donors.
Booker, a Senate newbie, and McConnell, the Senate minority leader, show up dipping into the same donor pool more than any other opposing-party members of Congress.

They shared 74 donors in the first year of this election cycle.


Predictably, the list of Booker and McConnell crossover donors includes powerful names at Fortune 500 companies, like  Lawrence J. Salva, senior vice president of Comcast, William Lauder, chairman of Estée Lauder Companies, and Eric Schmidt, executive chairman of Google.

Cory Booker, the hedge fund managers favorite former Newark mayor, still lapping up the Wall Street and corporate largesse.


  1. No surprises here. I proudly voted for Lonegan. Booker brought Anderson to Newark. Need I say more ?
