Santorum is a bigot, a mental midget and a genital wart. The only ones who support the taint are bible thumping hicks with the brains of a dog turd.
The perfect candidate for the culturally retarded and morally deformed denizens of backwater shitholes like Iowa and South Carolina where the bible thumping, born stupid twice loons have taken over politics and government for the benefit of the brothers Koch.

Koch Brothers? That's a non-issue. The DNC wants its shill to make something of the Kochs though.

Hmm. Kochs are down at #78.

Look at all that Dem money buying government!!! Hope the DNC doesn't see this.

Most of the Kochsuckers money goes to pacs and so called think tanks like the Heritage Foundation and ALEC. Most of their involvement is allowed to go unreported thanks to Citizens United. So it is not reflected in your list.
They are but two men with vast inherited wealth. The 77 donors who precede them are not individuals they are corporations and other large organizations.
They are not remotely a non issue in the real world. They funded the TeaBag movement. How else does a "grass roots" organization buy tour busses and take their dog and pony show on the road? How else could a "grass roots" organization fund a couple of hundred candidates across the country? That ain't grass roots, that's Astroturf and the Kochs are the kings of Astroturf.
We need to take the money out of politics. I am not afraid of campaign finance reform. I think the right would lose more often than not if they had to rely on citizen donors and reasonable limits. It takes a lot of money to convince voters that a dog turd in a TeaBag is good for you.
There should equal amounts of ad time for candidates and candidates who lie or slander should be fined. Penalties for violating campaign finance or ethics rules should be as harsh as those for crack cocaine.

Soros backed some of the FleaBag movement. The movement that somehow couldn't bring itself to march on the very source of corruption - Washington, DC. Wonder why that is. Then on top of that, they anoint themselves the dubious position of speaking for 99% of Americans with those folks consent to have someone allegedly speak for them.
The contributions from the Kochs werefrom Koch Industries, a corporation, just like thoe others listed in that link.
Do you also have a problem with the liberals & progressives that contribute to think tanks & PACs that support their causes?
I disagree that the right would be any more harmed than the left with campaign finance reform. BOTH parties benefit from it. BOTH parties are culpable.
As to ad time, equal time should be given to third party candidates who don't have the luxuary of a large party machine to buy that time and/or all of the perks that incumbency affords.

I haven't seen any proof that Soros gave any money to the Occupy movement. I don't think they'd take his dough. They told Michael Moore to shut up and listen. They've dodged every attempt by politicians and media types to co-opt them.
There has been an Occupy movement in DC. My guess is that they continue even now. Occupy Wall Street can't order the creation of an Occupy DC. It's actual grass roots.

We need to take the money out of politics. Right or left, money corrupts the process..

Both parties are culpable. Up until 2010 I would have said they were indistinguishable, but the rise of the lunatic right has remade the GOP into something very sinister and stupid.

Third parties deserve ad time. There should be some threshhold of legitimacy and support so that we don't have 300 million parties screaming for their share of time. I think most Americans would object to seeing ads from the American Nazi Party, or the Sharia Law Party or the NAMBLA Party... etc

Koch Industries is privately owned. The represent the interests of two multi-billionaire right wingers. they are not publicly traded corporations. They do not represent shareholders. They are not a trade group or a union. They are two power hungry guys who inherited more money than an asshole deserves.

Right Cheech, so you only believe in "certain" money given to corrupt politicians. How noble.

Actually, he or she said, "We need to take the money out of politics. Right or left, money corrupts the process.."
It may not be to late to benefit from a remedial reading program.

Everything about Santorum is funny, in a sick, scary way. He's a troglodyte. The folks who support him are so far down the evolutionary ladder as to be unrecognizable as sentient critters.

I know what Cheech actually preaches and he's a big time partisan. I'll let your ignorance slide.
