(Here’s is how a billionaire heiress like Betsy DeVos goes about buying herself a cabinet position.)
Huffington Post published an article listing the names of Republican Senators who are funded directly by Betsy DeVos. There are many DeVos family donors, and other political action committees, so this list may not be complete. I wonder if they will vote to confirm her.
Open the link to see if your senator got a big check from DeVos.
“Big donors often get positions in government, ambassadorships or ceremonial titles, but rarely do they come as big as DeVos. Sitting Republican senators have received $115,000 from Betsy DeVos herself, and more than $950,000 from the full DeVos clan since 1980. In the past two election cycles alone, her family has donated $8.3 million to Republican Party super PACs.”
