Federal Employees Overwhelmingly Contributed to Obama Campaign

Some agencies show no donations to Romney

Lawyers in federal agencies contributed more to Barack Obama than Mitt Romney in the 2012 presidential election, a pattern that mirrored giving at every federal agency, a review of Federal Election Commission records by a Pepperdine University law professor reveals.

The analysis also showed the Department of Education and the National Labor Relations Board did not report a single dollar in contributions to Romney from its lawyers.

"This is to be expected to some extent when you have a Democrat in the White House," said Robert Anderson, associate professor of law at Pepperdine, "but I've never seen numbers this lopsided, outside of a politicized organization."
