| 1 Comment

WASHINGTON--Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan donated $12,050 to Democrats between 2000 and 2008, according to Federal Election Commission records, all during her time at Harvard Law School. She donated to Barack Obama's Illinois Senate race--they met when they both taught at the University of Chicago--and his presidential contest.

CHICAGO FOOTNOTE: On Jan. 12, 2007, Kagan wrote a $500 check for a Chicago candidate--when Jose Cerda was running for clerk. Kagan and Cerda both worked in the Clinton White House.
