Is anyone at all surprised to find out that the Chairman, President, and CEO of the company that owns and operates Standard & Poor’s is a frequent and big money contributor to the Republican Party and to their candidates, causes, and PACs? This includes money to the National Republican Congressional Committee, the National Republican Senatorial Committee, George W. Bush, and Mitt Romney. But no money to Obama or the Democrats.
Of course, from now on he’ll probably use a shell company so we can’t figure things like this out.
