Report: Lobbyist Bundled $17.1 Million Since 2009

Lobbyists have bundled $17.1 million for 76 recipients since 2009, according to a Sunlight Foundation examination of Federal Election Commission filings. Five of the 12 Super Committee members have received bundled contributions, but Rep. Dave Camp (R-Mich.) was the only one who has received this type of money during this election cycle, according to a Sunlight blog.

Recipients have to disclose bundling contributions when they exceed $16,200.

The top five recipients of bundled money since 2009 were the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee with $4.47 million; the National Republican Senatorial Committee with $2.30 million; the National Republican Congressional Committee with $1.68 million; Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) with $1.14 million; and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) with $715,564, according to Sunlight's findings.

The top five bundlers were Edison Electric Institute with $2.12 million; Ben Barnes Group with $815,750; Brownstein Hyatt Farber Schreck with $641,925; Podesta Group with $558,350; and Ietan Consulting with $489,400, according to Sunlight.
