America's Oprichniki Supports Barack Obama

Is there any doubt who America’s Oprichniki is rooting for in the general election? After all, Barack Obama has increased their ranks and authority tenfold. National Review reports:

According to a search of FEC contributor data, employees of the Internal Revenue Service have a strong preference in this year’s election. Donors who list their employer as “Internal Revenue Service” or “IRS” have donated $26,538 to President Obama’s campaign, and just $2,340 to Mitt Romney’s campaign.

In the 2008 cycle, IRS employees donated $101,884 to the Obama campaign and just $2,780 to the campaign of John McCain.

So the president’s advantage in campaign donations from employees of the nation’s tax-enforcement agency has dropped from about 37 to 1 to merely 11 to 1.
