The NFL’s political action committee donated $10,000 to Harry Reid this election cycle.
CNS News reported, via Free Republic:
The National Football League’s political action committee—Gridiron PAC—has weighed in on the hotly contested U.S. Senate election in Nevada that pits conservative Republican challenger Sharron Angle against Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid.
The PAC has given $10,000 to Reid—the maximum it can give in a single election cycle—and no money to Angle, according to Federal Election Commission data compiled by OpenSecrets.org.
The NFL’s PAC also contributed to other incumbent Democratic senators facing viable challengers this year, giving $5,000 to Blanche Lincoln of Arkansas; $5,000 to Russ Feingold of Wisconsin; $5,000 to Barbara Boxer of California; $5,000 to Michael Bennet of Colorado; and $5,000 to Patty Murray of Washington.
In none of these races did the NFL’s PAC contribute to the Republican challenger.
How can any group or committee who represents individuals who try to negotiate the largest amount of money they can get for a contract with the least amount of regulations? If an NFL player does not believe in the free market, then they obviously have clue about what their advisors do for them. If I was an NFL player, I would be utterly pissed off at the NFL PAC for giving money to these socialist loons.
