<nettime> Military Contractors Spent Freely To Influence 2000 Election, Future Policy


Hi nettimers, 

For anyone interested in the current financial links between the US defense
industry, the Bush election campaign/administration and the impending Son of
Star Wars roll out there is a neat fact sheet on Pdf of top defense
contractor contributions in 2000 election at:

'Military Contractors Spent Freely To Influence 2000 Election, Future
Policy', 
By Miriam Pemberton and Lauren Budnick.

Number one: Lockheed Martin: $2,109, 475, split roughly 60/40 in favour of
Republican Party.
