In the 2002 Election cycle WorldCom has not cracked the top 20 to date: http://www.opensecrets.org/industries/contrib.asp?Ind=B09&Cycle=2002 They were #16 in the 2000 election cycle: http://www.opensecrets.org/industries/contrib.asp?Ind=B09&Cycle=2000 They also did not crack the top 20 in the 1998 election cycle: http://www.opensecrets.org/industries/contrib.asp?Ind=B09&Cycle=1998 I do find it interesting that Global Crossing was #1 in the 2000 election cycle, and is #2 to date in the 2002 election cycle. Not surprising, but interesting. Hope this helps, and hope that was not just a rhetorical question ;}. allan -- allan email@example.com http://www.allan.org
