01/31/13 UPDATE: Word has come to me that Truthout has retracted the story to which my blog post below refers. The story, by Truthout’s Danny Weil, apparently misread the OpenSecrets data, and confused contributions made by individuals with those from PACs. I regret passing along this error in the Truthout story, a story I cited in good faith.

This is almost too easy. The GEO Group, a huge, multi-billion dollar corporation, also has a political action committee so that they can essentially donate twice in every political campaign they want to be a part of (it’s called GEOPAC). But apparently, all those billions of dollars couldn’t buy them lawyers that could understand the difference between state and federal laws.
