Surfing Fundrace.org

Fundrace.org's Neighbor Search is fascinating and a bit scary: it lists the name, address, occupation, employer, political campaign contribution amount, and campaign contribution recipient in a multi-page list.

I'm intrigued that so many La Jolla realtors, whose names I readily recognize given their prominent advertisements in the weekly local La Jolla newspapers, are Bush supporters:

There are a few real estate people listed for non-Bush campaigns, but the vast majority are for Bush. Why?

Meanwhile, over at LA Voice, they're snooping around Fundrace to see who in L.A. is giving to the campaigns. Here's LA Voice's blog entry on Fundrace.

Want to know who the VCs and CEOs of Silicon Valley support? It's all there, just search using a Silicon Valley zip code and start reading page after page of data. Lots of Democratic support, and the occasional surprise (Carol Bartz, CEO of Autodesk, and Meg Whitman, CEO of eBay: both big Bush supporters!? Say it ain't so!)
