State's Top Ten Political Donors Revealed
The California Fair Political Practices Commission has compiled a list of the last decade's top political donors in the state. Film producer and real estate developer Steve Bing topped the list with $58 million in contributions, mostly to Democrats and Democratic causes (this is the left coast, after all).
The next three were politicians and candidates (Steve Poizner, number two; Steve Westly, number three; and a guy named Arnold, number four) who gave money to themselves. At number five is former Univision chief and Malibu resident Jerrold Perenchio.
The top-ten list is good for a total of $266 million in contributions. Check out the whole thing here.
