Summary The Center for Public Integrity deals with the extensive record of campaign giving by the top directors and executives at Enron. They found that 24 of the company's directors and executives contributed $800,000 to the Bush campaign, members of Congress and others overseeing investigations of the company from 1999-2001. "Perhaps the most important revelation was that former Enron CEO Kenneth Lay had donated $25,000 to Attorney General John Ashcroft when Ashcroft ran for U.S. Senate."
