From USA Today:

Labor unions and deep-pocketed donors promoting liberal causes are flexing their political muscle and have overtaken conservative billionaires in the race to fund super PACs, a USA TODAY analysis of new campaign-finance reports shows.

Nearly three dozen individuals and groups made donations of $500,000 or more to super PACs in 2013, pumping $62.6 million into these super-charged committees that can spend unlimited amounts to influence elections.

More than 87% of the money flowed from Democrats or donors backing liberal efforts, such as Keystone XL pipeline foe Tom Steyer, and big labor organizations, such as the AFL-CIO.

But … but … but … KOCH BROTHERS! Evil! Twisted! Right wing!

Y’know, those liberal donors are really just your every day citizen with choice who donates for a cause, whereas KOCH BROTHERS are devil incarnate. /endlibtalk

Barack HUSSEIN Obama has the deepest pockets. He’s spent a GENERATION’s worth of money in a mere 5 years.
