NFL Puts Money on Reid/Angle Race

I’m a Detroit Lions fan, which means it’s very easy for me to dislike the National Football League on any given week, but if you’re getting tired of the NFL for any other host of reasons and you’re not a Democrat, this could put you over the edge:

(CNSNews.com) – The National Football League’s political action committee—Gridiron PAC—has weighed in on the hotly contested U.S. Senate election in Nevada that pits conservative Republican challenger Sharron Angle against Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid.

The PAC has given $10,000 to Reid—the maximum it can give in a single election cycle—and no money to Angle, according to Federal Election Commission data compiled by OpenSecrets.org.

The NFL is obviously trying to protect that valuable franchise they have in Nevada.

In Gridiron Pac’s first year from 2008-2009, about two-thirds of their political donations went to Democrats, but this year they’re going all-out to keep the incumbent Democrat congress intact:

The NFL’s PAC also contributed to other incumbent Democratic senators facing viable challengers this year, giving $5,000 to Blanche Lincoln of Arkansas; $5,000 to Russ Feingold of Wisconsin; $5,000 to Barbara Boxer of California; $5,000 to Michael Bennet of Colorado; and $5,000 to Patty Murray of Washington.

In none of these races did the NFL’s PAC contribute to the Republican challenger.

CNS also reports that the NFL’s PAC gave the maximum amount of $10,000 to Nancy Pelosi and Charles Schumer. Boy, talk about a helmet-to-helmet hit on a defenseless constitution.

The full list of recipients from both parties is here.

If things go the way it’s looking like they might on Tuesday, the NFL will be busy trying to flag a lot of people for excessive celebration.
