Fracking money pours into political campaigns

Common Cause has issued a report on how the explosion of fracking for gas has been accompanied by an explosion of political giving by the frackers.

Here's a direct link to the full report.

In Arkansas alone, the fracking industry gave only about $2,000 to Arkansas members of Congress in 2001, but almost $139,000 in 2010. Here's the spreadsheet on all contributions to Congress, with congressmen listed alphabetically.

Here's also a handy database on Arkansas drilling.
