McCAIN-FEINGOLD - THE MONEY BEHIND IT



The Captain's Quarters re-visits McCain-Feingold, and brings together the issue of who decided that it was fine to limit on of our most important rights?

The list:
The vast majority of this money — $123 million, 88 percent of the total — came from just eight liberal foundations.

These foundations were: the Pew Charitable Trusts ($40.1 million), the Schumann Center for Media and Democracy ($17.6 million), the Carnegie Corporation of New York ($14.1 million), the Joyce Foundation ($13.5 million), George Soros' Open Society Institute ($12.6 million), the Jerome Kohlberg Trust ($11.3 million), the Ford Foundation ($8.8 million) and the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation ($5.2 million).

Wikipedia has the list of groups exempt from the bill.
