Hedge fund players pump millions into party committees


In the 2010 election cycle so far, Hedge Fund executives, managers and investors contributed more than $12.8 million to national and state party committees–the Democratic National Committee, the Republican National Committee, the Democratic Senatorial Committee, the National Republican Congressional Committee and so on–in chunks ranging from $10,000 to $30,400, a search of TransparencyData.com reveals.

The maximum amount an individual can give to a party committee in an election cycle is $30,400; OpenSecrets.org has a handy primer on the contribution limits here.
