Antis hand out cash: who accepted? (Expeditions).
It isn't surprising that the animal-rights movement has established a political action committee to help elect political candidates who support the animal-rights agenda. What may be surprising to some sportsmen is the identity of congressional members who accepted such support.
Humane USA PAC was created in 1999 to endorse and help fund campaigns for political candidates who support the animal-rights agenda and to lobby for animal-rights legislation. It is the official PAC of the Humane Society of the United States, Fund for Animals, Farm Sanctuary, Doris Day Animal League, Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, Animal Welfare Institute and other anti-hunting groups.
During the 2002 election year, Humane USA contributed a total of $22,500 to 25 members of the U.S. House of Representatives (22 Democrats and three Republicans), and it gave $20,000 to 10 members of the U.S. Senate.
