Former Unity08 Founders Council Members Show No Pattern in Campaign Cash

As the 2008 election cycle moves forward without the utterly defunct Unity08, I thought it might be instructive to look at the pattern of donations made by Unity08 leadership to other political campaigns. But it turns out that the biggest pattern of members of the Unity08 Founders Council is of non-contribution: 28 of the 31 Founders Council members have made no campaign contributions whatsoever in the 2007-2008 election cycle. Catherine Dunham has contributed $500 to Barack Obama. David Maney has contributed $3,000 to a Republican PAC, Republican Senator Norm Coleman, and $1,000 to Mitt Romney for President. Tom Stroock has contributed $2350 to Republicans and conservative Democrats in Wyoming, Colorado and Nebraska. There is no coherent tendency in the contribution data. There is no Unity.
