Phone Company Makes Politics An Issue

AT&T and Verizon Wireless contributed $386,000 and $35,500 respectively to members of the House Tea Party Caucus in the 2010 election cycle, and both companies donated to conservative extremist Rep. Michele Bachmann.

Based in San Francisco, California, Working Assets has raised over $65 million for nonprofit organizations such as GreenPeace, Planned Parenthood and Democracy Now.
