In a recent reply to a posted comment, the suggestions raised my curiosity about the make up of a political contributor base. The initial results were "interesting", both in the amounts and variety of contributions. Most interesting were the 5 seperate contributions, each for $1,000.00, made by members of the Ratner family (as in Forest City Ratner)based in Cleveland, OH. These are all legal, transparent contributions made by people who support Mr Bramsons run for office. Did I mention they all live in Cleveland(a beautiful city in it's own right)? Apparently, you can check the lists of political contributions on the New York State Board of Elections website. Who Knew? So, if you're interested in how your favorite politician is getting to where he/she's going, visit the site. You never know what might turn up.
