The Political One Percent of the One Percent

In the 2010 election cycle, 26,783 individuals (or one in ten thousand  Americans) each contributed more than $10,000 to federal political campaigns.  Combined, these donors spent $774 million. That’s 24.3% of the total  from individuals to politicians, parties, PACs, and independent  expenditure groups. Together, they would fill only two-thirds of the  41,222 seats at Nationals Park the baseball field two miles from the  U.S. Capitol. When it comes to politics, they are The One Percent of the One Percent.


Politics just got crazier.
