Questions You Should be Asking the World Around You
Interesting. $2700, the maximum allowable contribution by any single donor appears to be a “buy in” to the guest’s table. “Quid pro quo” as they say, pay the entrance fee, and you too can donate hundreds of thousands later on after the committee stops watching.
$6.9 million has been donated to Hillary. Donors ranging from Oil and gas lobbyists, to bundlers, and to workers in the oil and gas industry. This is according to an article from Greenpeace which you can find here.

This leads us back to an article on the Intercept which compares Sanders’ donations from the Oil and Gas industry. One donation from a Nathen Causman was a whopping $24.
The numbers get a little bit hazy from here. According to the intercept, Sanders has received $203,885 from the oil and gas industry, compared to Clinton’s $930,983.

The Intercept links to Opensecrets where we find a different set of numbers. Perhaps its just a case of tallies being taken at different points in time, but the proportions remain similar. Sanders at $297,799 and Clinton at 1,082,292.

Looking at Cruz’s and Bush’s tallies ($12 and $13 mil) I wonder why Clinton (in the video) reacted so explosively. If contributions from oil lobbyists are an indication, the less money a candidate receives, the more public approval he or she gets. (From the viewpoint of voters who want to protect the environment).
“I do not have… I have money from people that work for fossil fuel companies”
