That is easy, John Lewis (Representative) and Johnny Isakson, Chambliss Saxby (Senators).
2010 cylce thus far...
Walmart's PAC wrote him a check directly for $4,000
So he is moving up on the Walmart money train...
Walmart wrote a check DIRECTLY to Chambliss in 08 for $15,000
In 08 they paid about 32 Senators...guess who got paid the largest sum?
Strangely he hasn't gotten his check yet for 2010, or it hasn't been declared given the new SCOTUS ruling...I suspect he is negotiating his
He got 10K directly from walmart for 2010...only outdone by Blanche Lincoln.
So in just the past 2 years they have paid your reps something like 30K?
And this is just DIRECT, DECLARED money from WalMart itself, it gets muddy fast when you look at the dozens of PACs that Walmart has given money too
and who those PACs pay.
The Walton family also contributed directly to the campaigns of these guys. I don't have time to sum that up right now, but you can google it up.
Now add in the new federal rulings on disclosure (or lack thereof) and we don't know how much they are getting right now....
