Contributions by Funeral Professionals to Outside Political Spending Groups Up $121,000
The influx of outside money into the 2012 election cycle –totaling nearly $138 million so far — has been spurred in large part by wealthy individuals and corporations from a variety of high-profile industries.
Not all contributing industries are made for marquees, however. Some businesses making an electoral impact are more down to earth, or — as is the case with the subject of this week’s Politiquizz — underneath it.
The funeral services industry had not contributed significantly to outside spending groups in the last several election cycles, with a total of $3750 donated from 2004-2010, according toCenter for Responsive Politics research. One company has changed that, however, racking up $125,000 in donations to such groups for the 2012 races, including a $100,000 contribution to a super PAC supporting Rick Perry’s presidential bid — before that campaign was read its last rites.
