14. Bear in mind that corporations can't contribute to federal candidates.

 

I'm no Hillary fan but an unannotated list like this might give some people a misleading impression about her.

Take the Citigroup line:
Citigroup Inc $781,827 $773,827 $8,000


That means that $773,827 came from contributions from individual Citigroup employees, from 1%ers all the way down to the bank tellers. Only $8,000 came from the corporate PAC, funded by contributions from individual employees but controlled by the people who run the corporation. None of the money came from the corporate coffers.

5. Already running for re-election

Where did that money come from? Hopefully not any corporatists.

9. 1%ers make individual contributions as well...

Plenty of wealthy 1%ers gave to Warren's campaign (I know a lot of them). The Wall Street Journal ran a story in 2012 about "Wall Street Lawyers" supporting Elizabeth Warren, picking out my wife in particular.

10. $44 mil, almost all of it from individual contributions, in the hands

of a woman who's not--NOT, I say!--running for President.

I guess she's just gonna be the go-to girl for all those impoverished Dem Congressional candidates who need a little boost…

"where she can be more effective."

12. Yes, simple math tells you

that being 1% of the Senate is a much more powerful position than being 100% of the Presidency.
