We searched Goldman Sachs on Mitt Romney’s latest 5,000+ page campaign disclosure form and it took about 15 long minutes for the search to complete.
That’s because, as Bloomberg reports, Goldman Sachs employees and their families have given almost half a million dollars to the Romney campaign. Most of the donations we saw from this disclosure (which goes back to October) were for $2,500, the most a person can give to an individual candidate (yes, there are loopholes but that’s another post).
In fact, 8 of the top ten donors to Romney’s campaign come from the financial services industry. That’s some definite dollar power, but here’s the rub: In total, Romney raised $57 million last year, Obama, on the other hand, raised $58.5 million from donations of $200 or less alone.
