Senators Who Went Easy on JPMorgan CEO Received $582,088 from JPMorgan

As The Nation’s George Zornick reports, it’s hard to expect Senators to ask tough questions of the CEO of JPMorgan Chase when the members of the Senate Banking Committee are collective sitting on $582,088 in contributions from JPMorgan Chase. Zornick put a chart together detailing the various campaign contributions that the members of the Senate’s Banking Committee received from Dimon’s firm, like Chairman Tim Johnson who got $38,995 and ranking member Richard Shelby who got close to $73,000  Sen. Mark Warner wins out with $108,800 in donations.
