Raj Rajaratnam Big Democratic Booster

Raj Rajaratnam

The Democrats have lost another source of political funding.

It turns out arrested hedge fund manager Raj Rajaratnam — charged in a $20 million insider trading case — has given big to the party in power.

Here are his largest cumulative contributions this decade, according to data from OpenSecrets:

  • $26,700 to the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee
  • $26,200 to the Democratic National Committee Services Corp.
  • $11,100 to Hillary Clinton
  • $10,000 to the New Jersey Democratic State Committee
  • $4,600 to Barack Obama
  • $2,000 to Charles Schumer

We’ll see who decides to give it back or donate the funds to charity.
