Follow the Oil Money

February 4, 2008 at 6:59 pm (frightening things, politics) (, )

Oil Change International offers this helpful tool, Follow the Oil Money, so that we may track Big Oil’s financial endorsement of U.S. politicians.

Of the current presidential hopefuls, Giuliani receives the most. Of the democrats, Hillary Clinton seems the most oil-friendly, but (relatively) not notably more so than Obama.

Also check out the info on House and Senate members.

    Did you notice that Huckabee has taken comparatively little? Like actually $10,000 less than Edwards? Weird.

    Actually, Hilary Clinton has taken $235,250 while Barak Obama has taken less than half of that at $110,412. Edwards was much lower on the list at just over $29,000 and Kucinich didn’t even show up on the register.

    Thanks for the mention of our tool! I’ll keep you posted as we release new features and analysis.
