How much are labor unions giving to which politicians? New website provides numbers

A new website lets you see how much money Pennsylvania labor unions are giving to politicians.

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports that a conservative group called Citizens Alliance of Pennsylvania is behind the site, which has data going back three years.

The site, called Politicians and the Government Unions that Fund Them, shows that York County Democratic representative Eugene DePasquale ($21,750) has received the third-most money this year from the unions included in the database. That money, according to the site, has come mostly from the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees ($11,000) and the Pennsylvania State Education Association ($10,000).

The PSEA has also given $10,300 to York County Republican Ron Miller, and $10,000 to Republican Stan Saylor, making them Nos. 12 and 13 on the list.

Check out the database at the link above. You can search for a lawmaker’s name, and you can sort the database by amount received, political party and more.
