Georgia’s Congressional Delegation 3rd Quarter FEC Filings – – Part 2: Being a Cheerful Giver — Contributing & Donating Campaign Money

In addition to the use of campaign funds for pollsters, consultants, campaign staff, t-shirts, buttons, and the like for their own campaigns, Congressmen and Senators are often expected to contribute or donate to their respective party House or Senate campaign committees, other national political organizations, state and local political organizations, other political candidates, and charitable organizations.
