I always thought newspapering lends itself well to charts, graphs and tables...So when Jude's Internet piece on political donations made it into print today, I perused the donations our three Congressional candidates have given to others....
Democrat Bill Owens donating to Al D'Amato and George Pataki (does June know about that), as well as GOP Assemblyman turned convicted sex fiend Chris Ortloff, but Mr. Owens also gave to unconvicted sex enthusiast Eliot Spitzer.
. Matt Doheny is heavily invested ($9500) in Patty Ritchie, gave $2400 to now Senator Scott Brown (R-MA), gave to various county committees and the Club for Growth (could be why they aren't backing Hoffman this year) , $4000 to the Oneida County Independence Party (money well spent), gave to a bunch of people I never heard of, and gave that pesky $2400 to DeDe. No donations to SarahPAC are noted.
Doug Hoffman donated the least of the three unless you count those loans to his own campaign that pay interest.
Its good to see the Times delving into donations again...They had gotten out of the habit in recent years.
