Heidi Heitkamp Gets Maximum Donation From Planned Parenthood Chief, Barbara Streisand, Eliot Spitzer
Looking through the list of individuals who gave money to liberal Senate candidate Heidi Heitkamp’s campaign shows some interesting and controversial names.
Current Senator Kent Conrad gave the maximum $2,500 to Heitkamp’s campaign, as did his lobbyist wife Lucy Calautti, but you’d expect the incumbent Democrat Senator to support the Democrat running to replace him.
More surprising are names like NBA Commissioner David Stern, former Michigan Governor (and Current TV talking head) Jennifer Granholm and billionaire/Obama administration cheerleader Warren Buffett all gave the maximum to Heitkamp as well.
From the world of Hollywood Jeffrey Abrams, Steven Bochco, Rob Reiner, Barbara Streisand, Marcia Carsey and Kate Moss all gave Heitkamp the maximum donation.
I’ve posted about disgraced, hooker-loving former New York Governor Eliot Spitzer (also a Current TV talking head) supporting Heitkamp previously (he’s now maxed out his contributions), but he’s joined by controversial figures like Aimee Boone from Planned Parenthood of Texas and Soros henchman John Podesta, who is shown in the new Occupy Unmasked documentary (I got to see an early cut at RightOnline this year) to be a key figure in the background of the Occupy Wall Street movement.
Heitkamp likes to campaign as a sort of middle-of-the-road moderate. One would get the impression, from the way she campaigns, that Heitkamp is downright conservative. But you have to ask, would people like Eliot Spitzer, Rob Reiner and Barbara Streisand be maxing out donations to someone who is going to govern conservatively?Tags: barbara streisand, eliot spitzer, Heidi Heitkamp, North Dakota News, planned parenthood, Rick Berg
