top recipients of Israel PAC money

Thanks to the Washington Report on Middle Eastern Affairs for this listing of the top recipients of Israel PAC money.

You will see the leaders of both the House and Senate on this list. I'm sorry to say both of my Illinois senators are here, one of them, Mark Kirk, received so much money that he has already made the career top ten list for the Senate on his first year being in that body.

Also note the presence of House firebrand-for-Israel Illeana Ros-Lehtinen who is the Chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee. Note Eric Cantor, the guy who told Israel "we've got your back".

Keep in mind that AIPAC, the #1 Israel lobbying group, has managed to avoid being required to register under the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA)....continued below...

The description of FARA states (boldface mine):
FARA is a disclosure statute that requires persons acting as agents of foreign principals in a political or quasi-political capacity to make periodic public disclosure of their relationship with the foreign principal, as well as activities, receipts and disbursements in support of those activities. Disclosure of the required information facilitates evaluation by the government and the American people of the statements and activities of such persons in light of their function as foreign agents.
