In a survey of political donors between 1989-2014, the winner is ActBlue. They contributed $97,192,340, with 99 percent going to Democrats. Koch Industries contributed $18,083,948 with 8 percent to Democrats and 90 percent to Republicans. The Koch brothers are 59th on the list. Maybe it’s time to start telling the truth instead of being cheerleaders for President Obama.
