Media Forgets That
Wall Street Rip Off Artist
Is BIG Democrat Donor
by Warner Todd Huston - December 15th, 2008 - Business & Media Institute
Very few media stories of the fraud perpetrated by former Nasdaq chairman Madoff mentions the heavy financial support that Madoff has donated to the Democrat Party. Campaign contributions by Madoff show many thousands of dollars going to Democrat candidates and causes. Including $100,000 to the Democratic Senatorial Campaign, thousands to Charles Rangel (D, NY), Charles Schumer (D, NY), and $6,000 to the Securities Industry and Financial Markets Association. Madoff also gave generously to Senator Frank Lautenberg (D, NJ) who runs a charitable foundation that invested with Madoff.
With the money that Madoff spread around in contributions is it really surprising that his actions went ignored by regulatory agencies?
In any case, the media seems wholly uninterested in the fact that Madoff is a big Democrat contributor.
Once again the MSM shows its hypocrisy and bias. In reality, many of the MSM are trying to imply what they know is a lie, that Madoff is a Republican. He is actually a Democrat, but that does not fit the popular vision of corporate evil, so you never see any mention of the liberal Democrat bias of this man.
Due to the fact that not a single newspaper, TV or radio mention of this criminal touches on his party affiliation, as well as because he was such a huge supporter of the liberal Democrats, and most especcially since if he was a Republican it would have been screamed from the rooftops, I am reposting this article to remind people ... BERNIE MADOFF IS A DEMOCRAT!
