Facebook's Top Recipients of Campaign Donations Includes...Ted Cruz?
Ted Cruz and FB: In a relationship.
With Facebook in the news for all types of political and financial reasons, different groups are looking at where the social-media giant spends its campaign cash.
According to influenceexplorer.com, the top recipient of campaign funds from individuals connected to Facebook is Barack Obama, not surprising since 83 percent of such funds went to Democrats.
Number two is New York Senator Kirsten Gillibrand and number three is...Texas Tea Party favorite Ted Cruz, running for the GOP Senate nomination.
There's not a ton of money involved -- Cruz got $7,500 to Obama's $59,632. Maybe they'll be more generous once they get their IPO checks.
