Minnesota For Sale: How a handful of big donors fund the state Democrats
Did y'all know that Mark Dayton's (former governor of Minnesota) wife is a Rockefeller? Check out some of the donors for Minnesota politicians:
Among the 18 top donors, seven are labor unions and eight are individuals. Notable among the individuals are Alida Messinger (Rockefeller oil heiress and the ex-wife of the ex-Governor of Minnesota, Mark Dayton), the financier George Soros, and the Governor of Illinois, J.B. Pritzker.
Other names will be less familiar. Sontheim is a billionaire heiress to the Cargill company fortune. She is said to live in Rancho Santa Fe, California, despite giving a local address for her donation.
Democracy PAC II is another George Soros-created funding vehicle.
Among other big individual, out-of-state donors not making the cut, but giving more than $25,000, were residents of La Jolla, Los Altos, Menlo Park, San Francisco, and Tiburon CA, and Millbrook, and New York, NY. Trust me on the geography of this, you can’t afford to visit any of these places.
Among this group, the most famous name is Katrina vanden Heuvel, a New York heiress and leftist publisher, who gave $50,000. The address she provided is a building located on the Upper West Side in Manhattan.
