Robert Novak follows the money and reports that:
Sen. Robert Byrd, president pro tempore of the Senate who joined the most liberal senators in voting against censure of MoveOn.org, received $824,000 from the left-wing organization for his 2006 re-election campaign. Only 25 senators refused to condemn MoveOn.org for its newspaper ad belittling Gen. David Petraeus, the commander in Iraq.
Federal Election Commission figures show Sen. Hillary Clinton, who also voted against the resolution, received only $5,700 from MoveOn.org. Sen. Bill Nelson of Florida, second-ranking to Byrd among the organization’s recipients with $389,000, voted for the censure resolution.
George Soros, it seems, has some of the best friends money can buy. And he’s got lots more where that came from.
