Financier R. Allen Stanford has been busted for scamming his clients out of eight billion dollars. Guess what political party got the biggest contribution from this guy?
The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee received over $500,000 of Stanford's ill-gotten fortune back in 2002. That makes the DSCC, by far, the largest political recipient of Stanford cash.
Matt Lewis of AOL News said, "I'm sorry, but as a political writer, it intrigues me that big-time financial scammers seem to show a pronounced preference for Democrats. Bernie Madoff's political money went almost entirely Democratic, and while Stanford was a little more bipartisan, he did give the DSCC more than five times as much money than he gave to his biggest Republican beneficiary."
