Pershing: MLB Spreads the Wealth on the Hill

Major League Baseball PAC had a busy 2007, taking in $198,000 and handing out $168,000

Over the course of the year, MLB gave money to the election campaigns of 13 Senate Democrats, 10 Senate Republicans, 15 House Democrats and 10 House Republicans. The list of recipients is heavy on members of the leadership and of the House and Senate Judiciary committees (which protect baseball’s valuable antitrust exemption).
