Who gives what to whom to influence politics

I never even heard of ActBlue before yet it is the top all time donor from 1989-2014 to political candidates and parties.

OpenSecrets.org has the list of the Heavy Hitters: Top All-Time Donors, 1989-2014 based on material released by the Federal Election Commission.

The top 16 donors give to the Democrat party except for 4 who give equally to both.  Twelve of the top 16 donors are unions.  Koch Industries, the bete noir of many leftists, ranks only 59th.
