From The Huffington Post’s Fundrace website:

Want to know if a celebrity is playing both sides of the fence? Whether that new guy you’re seeing is actually a Republican or just dresses like one? If your boss maxed out at that fundraiser or got comped? Whether your neighbor’s political involvement stops at that hideous lawn sign?

FundRace makes it easy to search by name or address to see which presidential candidates your friends, family, co-workers, and neighbors are contributing to. Or you can see if your favorite celebrity is putting their money where their mouth is.

FundRace gives you the technology to do what politicians and journalists have been doing for years: find out where the money’s coming from, see who it’s going to, and solve the mystery of why that crazy ex-roommate of yours is now the Ambassador to Turks and Caicos.

And, via MotherJones, the remix by occupation:

    Wow, they really have bugger-all privacy provisions in their electoral laws eh…

    CEOs who give are mostly DEMOCRATS??!!

    Well, the Dems are even more right wing than NZ Labour, so it’s not a huge shock. And given they have a two-party system if you’re a socially liberal CEO the Dems are the only game in town.

    Might be on to something there Tane. What a crap system.

    97% of science teachers give to the Dems. I wonder if that has anything to do with global warming concerns or the teaching of evolution?

    I see 100% of sex slaves and wizards give to Ron Paul. That’s not very surprising considering their views on…

    The Dems seem more right-wing than National, let alone Labour.

    I wonder who the sex slaves and wizards donate to in NZ?

  6. Phil 6

    I wonder what’s so demographically different about english teachers that they buck the trend?

    Interesting that Attorney’s and Lawyers are more likely to suport the dem’s. If I was being obtuse, I would suggest that’s because they think Dem’s write poorer legislation that requires more legal interpretation

    Felix: No, the dems are generally left of National, although they have some politicians who would fit into that party, as USA elections tend to race to the centre. (or perhaps the centre-right by our standards)

    Phil: I imagine English teachers are just showing appreciation for how much extra money they make from tutoring now the Republicans have completely gutted education funding. 😉
