Is $250,000 from Dow Chemical Co. to the GW Bush Republicans enough to buy off a few Dioxin favors?
WASHINGTON -- Michigan companies and individuals contributed more than $1 million to the Presidential Inaugural Committee, including the maximum donation of $250,000 each by General Motors Corp., Ford Motor Co., Dow Chemical Co. and Bloomfield Hills real estate developer Kojaian Ventures
"These donations are one of the few remaining opportunities for special interests to give virtually unlimited amounts of money to elected officials they are trying to enhance their influence with," says Weiss, noting that the contributions are exempt from limits on individuals and corporations imposed by federal law.
