Someone sent me a link to the Wisconsin Elections Board website. On this site, you can read the reports that candidates have filed about the campaign contributions they have received.
Here is the website, it is very easy to negotiate.
Just for giggles, I thought I would take a look at how many Kenosha County residents have contributed the maximum $10,000 to the Green and Doyle campaigns. I have not looked at the 2005 numbers yet. I have only looked at the numbers from Jan 06 thru June 06.
I was floored when I took a began to look at these numbers. Here is a breakdown of what I found for individual campaign donations for $10,000 for this year only.
-34 individuals have contributed a maximum of $10,000 to Governor Jim Doyle
- of these 34 individuals giving $10,000, 9 of them are Kenosha County residents. 27% of Doyle's $10,000 contributions came from Kenosha County!
- of these 9 individual Kenosha county residents giving, 6 of them builders, contractors, flooring or electricians, totally 66%.
- Mark Green had a total of 10 individuals giving the maximum of $10,000 this year.
- Of these 10 contributors, ZERO are from Kenosha County.
Kinda makes you wonder how many of the Kenosha County residents giving $10,000 are trying to buy themselves a Casino in Kenosha.
I have just now started looking into the campaign contributions from both candidates. As I discover more, I will post more.
