Fun with FundRace: Celebrity politics

A new website called FundRace.org makes it easy (and fun!) to find out which of your neighbors gave money to Presidential candidate campaigns. Check out some results I found below.

Searching in my New York City zipcode, I found two notable celebrities who donated money to Democratic campaigns:

Eve Ensler
Writer
16th St Productions
Howard Dean $2,000
200 Park Ave S
New York, NY 10003

Edward Norton
Actor
Alt NTN Inc
Dennis Kucinich $2,000
200 Park Ave South
New York, NY 10003

Cool, right? For those who aren't cool pop culture junkies, Eve Ensler wrote the Vagina Monologues and Ed Norton is an actor. (Please don't go to try and visit them now that you know where they live.)

You can also search by name, which I did, only to find "The Donald" hedging his bets:

Donald J. Trump
President
The Trump Organization
John Kerry $2,000
725 5th Ave
New York, NY 10022

Donald J. Trump
President
The Trump Organization
George W. Bush $2,000
725 5Th Ave
New York, NY 10022

You didn't think Trump got to be where he is today by favoring a certain political party, did you?

Feel free to add notable results you come across to the comments section.
