So, I'm going to be a procrastinator...and start looking up FEC reports for Dianne Feinstein instead of working on this article.

Alright, lets go!
P.S. This will be for 2018, for the next election cycle.
If you noticed, this is a candidate that has taken out loans, which apparently has become more and more popular to do over the years for elections.
I'm going to start with individual contributions, which I have stated before, can still hold PACs or companies donations. I'm going to also highlight it for y'all to see whether it is primary or general. This section will take awhile, 3k receipts.
Okay, one second, I want to show you some individual contribution amounts that are...shocking? Yeah, that is not a good enough word for it.

Two people gave 27k each.
All of these are for primaries. Lovely one of them is a venture group.
A few Emily's List givings. Three in one day it looks like for one set. All but one are primary.
Looks like that same Venture group gave for her general.
Another Emily's List, for general. On a side note, I'm ignoring any celebrities names I've found so far on this, because they deserve the ability to give money as individuals. Also am not touching Indian Tribe contributions.
Even more Emily's List, and a few others. Lot of lawyers.
Oh JStreetPAC, my old friend! I wondered when you would show.
If any of y'all are new to my set up of searching through FEC and are wondering why I just don't search for these instead of having to post them individual like this. The search system on this site DOES NOT WORK WELL. So for accuracy I have to do it the slow way.
Just tons and tons of Emily's List
Have I mentioned tons of Emily's List?
Like lots of them. You know what, I think y'all get the drift on Emily's List, so I'll stop showing it.
Alright, that is all the major stuff I found in the individual donors, now on to the meatier stuff: Other committee contributions. I wonder how many shell PACs I'll find there...
Damnit, guess I get to dive into the next level right away. Let's see where Treasure State PAC gets their money.
See a few international companies there. Busch is no longer American. Also still questioning the legality of the broadcasters having a PAC.
Omg, y'all are going to love this PAC! (not, no seriously not)
Yes that is the British company Ernst & Young. Yes that is Monsanto, twice. Yes, that also is the Commissioner for Baseball, not sure why they need a PAC.

Also this doesn't fit all of the PAC's stuff
Poet is the world's largest ethanol company, if you are wondering. The Poet PAC gives to both Dems and Rep. Highest paid Dem in 2018 is Joe Donnelly. And yes there is more Monsanto. And that Bank of New York PAC you see down there, going to eventually look into it (not today)
Oh Common Ground and Impact PACs! Guess we are doing a quick once over with y'all again!

Tim Kaine is the "honorary" chairman of Common Ground PAC. If that doesn't clue you in. So lets start with that one!
It is a Shell PAC, plain and simple, just look at those numbers. With nearly all of it coming from other PACs. Like from his own PAC. No seriously. The biggest amount comes from his victory fund PAC.
IMPACT, also a shell. Nearly has the exact same donors to it as the others. Just a few pharmaceutical/healthcare companies here. And yes, that British company is here too.
Okay, I don't have time today to go into all these shell PACs, because I'm glancing over them, and there are just a few....tons in Feinstein's PAC. So I'm just going to go show all directly donated PACs.
Yes, again that British company there.
Can't say why she doesn't want single payer...oh wait....

Also the Supporting House Problem Solvers PAC was briefly touched on in a different thread when I was looking at the New Democrat Coalition.
The American Chemistry Council PAC I remember from a while back, gets money from DOW Chemicals, a Koch owned company.

Also more Pharma stuff.
Alright, this all for other Committee contributions, now onto AUTHORIZED COMMITTEES...
Er, sorry I wasn't clear, authorized ones start here. And this is the ones without people's names on them.
And that's all that is shown for 2018. As you can tell, she mostly has taken out a loan.

I marked out her address because not sure if it is published material.
Anyways, that is all I have time for now. Laters y'all.
