Ponzi’s Political Donations

leave a comment »

Bernard Madoff set a new standard in pyramid scheming last week grifting an estimated $50 billion.  Needless to say the rich and powerful connected to Ponzi are in a panic trying to distance themselves from the corruption.  So what politicians have been in Ponzi’s pockets? Newsmeat provides some answers.  It should be little suprise Sen. Schumer has benefited in past years. Rangel, Democrats in general, ect.  It’s a pretty extensive list.  Politico also provides some good detail to Ponzi’s political peddling as well.
