An interactive guide to subprime spending on Capitol Hill
Yesterday,I posted the post "Almost all biggest subprime lenders have received bailout money" based on the very detailed detective work by The Center for Public Integrity (please visit their article here). Since then, the FT has come up with a nice little interactive pie chart which shows specifically:
- Which Members of Congress have received large contributions from the subprime kings in the financial services industry.
- Which financial services companies with large subprime operations have contributed most to Congress .
You can break it down by donor or recipient. Give it a whirl. It could be quite illuminating.
See the link below to see what the FT said in conjunction with the pie chart and for links to relevant FT source material.
