Since the disgraced Barack Obama adviser Franklin Raines is a popular topic of discussion today, I figured it's time to look at who he favored as a campaign contributor. And what do you know, the recipients of his largesse are overwhelmingly Democrats.
It's a regular all-star lineup of Democrat hacks, miscreants and presidential candidates.
Just need to get this out there before all of them deny ever knowing the guy.
Let's see, there's Dingy Harry Reid, Tom "Puff" Daschle, Barack "Who's Franklin Raines?" Obama, Chris "Sandwich King" Dodd, Chuckie "Cheese" Schumer, Harold Ford, Evan Bayh, Frank Lousenberg, Tim Johnson, Rahm Emanuel, Hillary Clinton, Al Gore, Robert "Sheets" Byrd, David Bonior, Bob "The Criminal" Torricelli, Dianne Feinstein, Paul Sarbanes, Richard Gephardt, Charles "Four Apartments" Rangel, Kent Conrad, Maxine "I Hate White People" Waters, John Lewis, William "The Refrigerator" Jefferson, Ted "The Swimmer" Kennedy, Jane Harman, Eleanor Holmes Norton, Bill Bradley and Michael Dukakis.
And those are just the names I recognize.
Oh, and he mixed in a couple of contributions to Republicans Kit Bond and J.C. Watts.
That's while he's listed as a DC resident. He also gave Walter Mondale some scratch back in the 1980s as a New York resident.
Over to you, Karen Tumulty.
