Interesting. None of mine are on there. However almost all of them that showed up in my zip code are going to Romney.

The lowest amount I saw was $150. Did you give that much?

Here's the City of Compton representin'

Across town, in contrast, in dirt-poor South Central Los Angeles, zip 90011, a grand total of three people have given $4,250 total. This is 0.2 percent of what Beverly Hills gave.

Lot of Dem Lawyers (4) in mine giving good money to Edwards: $500, $1000, $2000 etc. One gave over $4000 to Hillary. I thought you could only give like $2000 somethin bucks. Oh! And he has an Arab name and owns a business...an arcade. Two Pubs $250 and $250 to Rudy. Yikes! Gotta get my RonPaul signs up and drive in front of their house several times a day when they're home. Maybe I'll pretend to be a house cleaner and see if they need my services while I wear a Ron Paul Revolution T-shirt and hat. Put a bumper sticker on my ass. Ones retired and should be home. That sounds like a better idea!

I just spent some time on this function. I'm very glad HuffPost did this and I hope it stays up throughout the election.

I got to wonder why anyone would give billionaires money just so they could get in a position to take more of your money.

I think I'll call those Dem Lawyers since they listed their law firms and use up the free initial consults tommorrow. :evil: :)

I'm going to mail my nearby Giuliani supporters and ask them how excited they are about supporting a war with Iran and how quickly they think we should train our troops to do more nation building.

I'm beginning to wonder what sources this database has. It is certainly fun to see people in your neighborhood, but a search of most sections makes it look like Edwards and Romney are getting most of the $, which is clearly not the case.

Not near me. I'm getting a ton of Obama and Giuliani donations in my neck of the woods. Hillary is right up there, too.

By the way, my guess is their source is fec.gov, or else they went to some FEC office and looked at official records and found a great way to organize all the data

Well, then it's a match made in heaven because I'm a cheap Republican fiscal conservative. I keep a whole list of who does free initial consults....I never pay for legal advice as a result. :evil:

I always said an opposition party is a good thing. "Checks and balances"...has a nice mercenary ring too it.

Here's a different database that includes other types of contributions:

http://moneyline.cq.com/pml/home.do

It gives the same results as the one in the OP for individual candidates in my zip code (which amounts to a husband/wife couple who donated $3300 to Mitt Romney).

Damn it, I need some kind of log in to view the donations to the major candidates. Can't you post the top 3 on both sides (I'll rep you for it!).

I might be misunderstanding you, but there were only two individual contributions in my zip. A husband and a wife who each gave $1650 to Mitt Romney.

Southern Idaho is Mitt Romney country. No suprise there. It also happens to be Mormon country. Idaho, to my knowledge, has never swung democratic, but if Giuliani gets the nomination, this may be the first, but only if Obama gets the democratic nod. Idahoans would vote for an actual donkey before they'll vote for Hillary.

Though, I wouldn't be suprised if Ron Paul could get a lot of Idahoan votes should he end up on an independant ticket. He's exactly the kind of politics that appeals to Idahoans.

Not that it matters much in the big picture... Idaho has virtually nothing by way of electoral votes.

Hmmm... I'm not finding my contributions in this list. I wonder how long it takes. I actually just donated another $25 today.

FEC reports are quarterly, so probably not until after Oct 15th when the next one is due.
