Surprise! Romney Donated to Democrats

One of Mitt Romney's most famous quotes comes from his 1994 race for Senate in Massachusetts. Whie debating Ted Kennedy, he openly stated that he did not want to return to "Reagan-Bush," adding that he was an independent during that time. It's also come out that he voted in the 1992 Democratic primary.

Now, Pundit Press has found that the former Massachusetts Governor not only voted in the Democratic primary, but also gave money to multiple candidates. By searching for Romney, it turns out that his donations helped three Democrats.

A 1992 donation went to Democratic Congressman John LaFalce:

The same year we have Democrat Doug Anderson:

We also have former Democratic Congressman Dick Swett:

We'll leave you with this:

Please bookmark!


  1. Sorry, I can't process any of this after reading the name "Dick Swett."

    1. I think there was an SNL skit about this with Alec Baldwin.

  2. Strange that it all came in the same week, right? It's like he planned to run for Senate, and then shot out a couple of pretty good sized donations to prove he's not much of a loyal republican, and even voted in the democrat primary (basically like registering as a democrat).

    Everything about this guy is fake.

    Meanwhile, Newt was asking for Reagan to be more conservative, while praising what he's doing.

    Newt goes too far on a limb for what he believes in. Mitt doesn't have beliefs to go out on a limb for.

  3. From 1990-2006, Mitt Romney donated 97.6% of the time to Republicans. Total Donations: $65,180. $1,500 to 3 Democrats & $63,680 to Republicans. Sound and fury signifying nothing?

    1. I guarantee you that the lion's share of that money you say he gave Republicans came in the 2000s when Romney was trying to remake himself into a Republican. Which feeds into the narrative you don't want to admit, Romney is at best a johnny-come-lately Republican and at worst a fake one.

  4. He's a businessman in Massachusetts, of course he donated to Dems. Its called protection money. If you are big and you don't pay the dems, they will screw over your business. MS had to start paying that as did Google not to long ago.

    1. I agree with you, Doc. By Tom's logic all men are actually women due to the trace amount of estrogen they possess. ;-)
      Thanks for reading!

  5. Romney: Who funds him? 10 percent from small individual contributions, the rest from Goldman Sachs, Credit Suisse Group, Morgan Stanley, HIG Capital, Barclays, Kirkland & Ellis, Bank of America, PriceWaterhouseCoopers, EMC Corp, JPMorgan Chase. You guys know what these companies are, right?

    Let’s look at Credit Suiise Group. “In 2009, Credit Suisse settled on charges that it violated sanctions regulating financial transactions with IRAN!! The charges included “stripping”, the practice of removing the identity and origin of funds used in transactions. Credit Suisse employees stripped the identities of Iranian banks enabling funds to be transferred to the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran and the Aerospace Industries Organization, entities respectively involved in the production of nuclear weapons and long range missiles!!” Wow, I would love to have them filling my pockets, wouldn’t you?

    PricewaterhouseCoopers is a global professional services firm headquartered in London, United Kingdom. Love those Brits, want to be a puppet of those guys.

    Don’t you see the picture here? Who are you really supporting?

  6. Between January and September 2011, Mitt Romney’s Bain Capital gave Barack Obama $27,500!
    So far this year, Bain Capital donated $123,200 to the Democratic National Committee. They also donated to a Romney super PAC; $1.25 million!

    Romney’s companies have sent 25% of this year’s donations to the Democrats, while in 2008, 2/3 of their money went to Obama!

    Romney's top contributor is Goldman Sachs who was Obama's top contributor in 2007-2008:

    "According to Federal Election Commission figures compiled by the Center for Responsive Politics, Goldman Sachs' political action committee and individual contributors who listed the company as their employer donated $994,795 during 2007 and 2008 to Obama's presidential campaign."

    Isn't it funny how so many people who are tired of the same old thing, go for the same old thing election after election.
