Description

This two day series by reporters at the Washington Post looks at the campaign fundraising practices of Pres. George W. Bush's main contributers. The groups, who are called the "Bush Pioneers" and "Bush Rangers," have found ways to bypass contribution limits to come up with a record amount (296.3 million) of campaign funding for the 2000 election. According to the report, the Pioneers "have evolved from an initial group of family, friends, and associates willing to bet on putting another Bush in the White House into an extraordinarily organized and disciplined machine." In exchange for their generosity, some contributers now hold several positions in the White House.
