Abramoff: Who Got What

"Most closely linked to Republicans:

National Republican Congressional Cmte -- $498,000
Democratic Congressional Campaign Cmte -- $354,700

A difference of $143,300, or 28.8%. Democrats received 71.2% of the money Republicans did.

National Republican Senatorial Cmte -- $436,500

Democratic Senatorial Campaign Cmte -- $423,480

A whopping difference of $13,020, or 3%. Democrats received 97% of the money Republicans did.

(As regards the congressional committees, that is.)

There's a much bigger difference between the donations to the RNC (around $326,000) and the DNC ($65,720), but then, the Democrats are out of power. Certainly the differences between the amounts given to the parties' congressional and senatorial campagin committees are not vast, especially not considering there are more Republican Congressmen and Senators, and they control, nominally, the Congress.

Eyeballing it, individual Republican recipients outnumbered individual Democratic ones by about a 3:2 ratio, but that sure seems pretty much a bipartisan scandal to me.

Seems to me like Abramoff spread out his largesse pretty evenly.

And yet "even Democrats... are panicking."

Thanks to Andrew's Dad.

I'm An F'n Moron Update: My first go at the numbers was completely screwed up. I compared the Republican Senate numbers to the Republican Congressional numbers, and the Dem Senate to the Dem Rep numbers.

Because I'm a stupid fatheaded imbecile.

Thanks to A Marble Desk for straightening my dumb ass out.
