"Open Secrets" at: http://www.opensecrets.org/ has a wealth of information about money and politics. Above is DFA's Political Action Committee (PAC) donations for the current, 2010, cycle.
I pasted the data to an Excel spreadsheet. Excel has a sort feature for either "ascending" (highest at the top) or "descending" highest at the bottom. Somehow, it seemed more appropriate to sort "descending", which leaves Colin Peterson at the bottom.
Peterson is head of the House "Ag" committee and an old hunting/fishing buddy of former DFA head Gary Hanman. Nothing gets past Peterson.
As can be seen from his total dairy PAC contributions, Peterson is pretty well taken care of.
What is neede is a new GPS (Global Political Scheme) to navigate around the guy.
