Anthony's a Weiner

cassandra over at the LGOMB thinks this is "awesome, really."

Now, for the proverbial bucket of cold water:

According to opensecrets.org, out of the 100 top donors in 2010 only 11 favored republicans. Ranking at #68 Independent Insurance Agents and Brokers of America donated $711,750 of which 60% went to republicans; 37% to democrats. Out of all the insurance companies that were listed, not one favored republicans. (I presume the writer meant "Out of all the remaining insurance companies ..." -- Hube.)

Anthony Weiner not only distorts the truth, he left out the fact that the insurance industry has donated $63,490 to his campaign coffers over the course of his despicable career.

In fact, insurance cos. contributed the second largest amount of campaign cash to Weiner's coffers.

So yeah, cassandra -- Weiner is "awesome, really." Awesomely hypocritical, that is.

No, he didn't. The big insurance companies were donating to Democrats. The trade group for independent agents and brokers gave to Republicans.

Corporate dollars went to the Dems, small business dollars went to the GOP.
