Shock: College professors looooove Democrats (and Charlie Crist)

News

Politico has investigated FEC filings for Democrats to prove what we all already suspected knew: college campuses go gaga for Democrats:

An analysis of Federal Election Commission data conducted by the Center for Responsive Politics shows that Democrats have raked in more than $400,000 just from employees of the University of California's network of colleges — 86 percent of all donations from UC employees.

Harvard employees ranked second in donations to Democrats, giving $327,028 to the party — 77 percent of total donations from employees of the university.  ...

Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) has been the top recipient of academic donations, collecting more than $175,000 — likely from those active University of California donors.

The other politicos receiving the largest donations from colleges and universities are Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y. ($170,000), Gov. Charlie Crist, I-Fla. ($165,000) and Sen. Harry Reid, D-Nev. ($144,000).
